Manchester United moved back to the top of the Premier League table after claiming a third win from three games with Saturday's 2-0 victory over Leicester.

Jose Mourinho's men have now scored 10 league goals without reply this season, but things did not all go their way at Old Trafford.

Kasper Schmeichel saved Romelu Lukaku's penalty six minutes into the second half and it took until 20 minutes from time for United to make the breakthrough.

Marcus Rashford took advantage of slack marking to sweep in following a corner three minutes after his introduction off the bench.

And Rashford's fellow substitute Marouane Fellaini added a second after Jesse Lingard's shot to leave Leicester, 2015-16 champions, with three points from their opening three matches.

United moved two points clear of Huddersfield, who briefly led the table again on Saturday afternoon on goal difference from Manchester City.

Defeats for West Ham and Crystal Palace put pressure on Slaven Bilic and Frank de Boer at the bottom of the table.
