Manchester United kept their impressive start to the season with another win yesterday, beating Hull City by a solitary goal.

However, it took a late, late goal by their substitute Marcus Rashford to keep the 100 per cent Premier League record intact.

Both sides entered the fixture having won their two opening Premier League fixtures and Hull showed, despite being threadbare numbers-wise in their squad, they are a disciplined, well-ordered unit under their caretaker boss, the former Manchester United player and coach Mike Phelan.

In fact Phelan will be pondering, in his post-match analysis, how Hull let a point slip-away after such determined defensive work with Curtis Davis, at the heart of the defence, deserving of a special mention.

But football, as we all know, can be a cruel game and after trying to break the deadlock, without success, for ninety minutes, United finally succeeded in the fourth minute of the allocated four minutes of stoppage time.

The goal came courtesy of an assist from Wayne Rooney who did some top-notch work on the flank to deliver the perfect ball into the danger zone to enable Rashford to slot the ball home from two yards out.

The goal prompted wild scenes of celebration as the players and support combined to celebrate the moment.

However, Manchester United will reflect on numerous chances created that were squandered by the likes of Rooney, Ibrahimovic and Pogba. As for Hull, their best chance fell to Meyer who, moments before the United goal had blazed an effort over the bar when well placed.

The win sees Manchester United in second place in the Premier League with Chelsea topping the table, the two clubs are, at the time of writing, the only two to have maximum points after three games.
