After being held to a 0-0 draw by Hull City, in midweek, it was essential for Manchester United to get back to winning ways against Leicester City.

And that was exactly the case with Manchester United out-classing the side who finished as the Premier League champions last season.

After the game both managers had a few words for the media, with Jose Mourinho remarking about the win,

‘It was really important for us. We lost two points in the last match at home and had three consecutive draws so we needed the points.

‘I am happy. We don’t have a league defeat since October and if we tried to transform the unlucky draws to victories, we would be in an amazing position.’

Those draws have certainly cost Manchester United.

As for the stunned Claudio Ranieri who has seen his side fail to score a Premier League goal in 2017, he added,

‘When we conceded the first goal we got down. I don’t understand why. It’s important to be strong until the end and never give up. But the confidence is not so high.

‘Last season was terrific but we are Leicester and every time we have to fight.

‘We are together. I am fully confident in my players and the players are confident in me.’

Leicester are falling down the table fast, could the 2015 / 2016 champions end up relegated?
