Just as the two first game weeks, United won with Juan Mata on the starting eleven. United won 2-0 to Leicester and the national team break comes with United as leaders of the Premier. Schmeichel avoided a great shot from Mata.
Another win and a clean sheet again. Juan Mata’s Manchester United enlarged their good streak on the Premier League. Mourinho’s men, with Juan as a starter, beat Leicester (2-0) at Old Trafford thanks to goals from Rashford (70′) and Fellaini (82′). With this score, United will sleep as leaders of the Premier during the national team break.
Juan was a protagonist during the first half. The Asturian saw how they cancelled his goal after a dubious off-side and, two minutes later, he was just about to score one of the most beautiful goals of the season. He controlled a ball from Lukaku, dribbled Maguire in a yard and performed a poisoned shot that got rejected by a good Schmeichel.

With a 94% of passing accuracy, Mata was the most effective offensive player in United. When it comes to talking about the group, with 10 goals scored and none conceded in 3 game weeks, Man United will confront this national team break with optimism. Red Devils won’t play again until the 9th of September when they’ll have to play against Stoke City.
Man Utd have won their first three games of the season without conceding a goal for the first time since the 2005/06 season.

“Nine points out of nine. I’m happy before the international break but we have our feet on the ground. We created enough chances to score today and I think we are the deserved winners. It was a convincing performance and it felt like we were never going to score, but finally we did. The starting 11, we tried our best but it was very important that the three substitutes gave us a lot”, said Juan.
