Wow. Talk about a reaction.

Following three defeats in their last four games Jose Mourinho and Manchester United have come under plenty of scrutiny but his side simply blew away reigning Premier League champs Leicester City with an enthralling first half display.


Chris Smalling headed home to get things started, then Juan Mata, Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba all scored in a four-minute spell just before half time as Leicester continued to switch off from set piece situations.

Without captain Wayne Rooney, who was dropped for this game, Mourinho’s side looked fluid, dangerous and full of pace in the attacking third. The Foxes just couldn’t handle them.
