At the King Power Stadium on Sunday afternoon, Manchester United extended their run of unbeaten Premier League games to fifteen, courtesy of a comfortable win over a Leicester City side that are a shadow of the side that claimed the Premier League title last season.

Those fifteen games have seen Manchester United win 8 and draw 7 but there`s still a lot of work to do to earn a Champions League qualification lace for next season.

Against Leicester yesterday, the first twenty-minutes of football produced by both sides was, to put it mildly, uneventful.

However, Jose Mourinho made a subtle tactical change; going from a front two to a lone striker and Manchester United were suddenly pulling the strings.

As half-time approached a brace of goals in as many minutes stunned Leicester City. The first saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan collect a flic-on from Chris Smalling and race clear, finishing with aplomb past Kasper Schmeichel.

A minute or so late the lead was doubled when some awful marking from our hosts allowed Zlatan Ibrahimovic to finish with ease.

The half-time break gave Leicester a chance to regroup but any chances of the home side had of getting back into the game was ended some four minutes later when Juan Mata produced a neat finish after a one-two with Mkhitaryan.

The victory leaves Manchester United in sixth place, a point behind Liverpool and two points behind fourth placed Arsenal.
