3 Thoughts as Manchester United Set the Pace in the Premier League

As the dust settled and final whistle blown, United emerged victorious in another Premier League game, a vital 2-0 win at Old Trafford against the 2015/16 Champions Leicester City. On the whole, United deservedly took home all three points as Mourinho's side improved their points tally to nine, out of nine available - and will go into the international break with confidence as high as it can be.
