Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho saw all three of his substitutes contribute to the goals that earned a 2-0 win over Leicester City on Saturday but was quick to dismiss praise of his tactical move.
Unfortunately for Schmeichel a Marcus Rashford goal 18 minutes after the penalty save spoiled his clean sheet.
Gabriel Jesus had cancelled out Charlie Daniels' stunning strike as City came from behind for a second win from three games following Monday's draw with Everton, who play Chelsea on Sunday. "Three matches, nine points, is nothing new for us because last season was three matches and nine points".More news: Dozens killed in fresh Saudi-led airstrike on Yemen's capital
JOSE MOURINHO has revealed there will be no more signings for Manchester United in this transfer window. "The team is playing confident, great football", he said. With the global break looming ahead and no club games for the next two weeks, it's unlikely we will see any changes to the side coming off consecutive 4-0 wins.
Leicester came into this game in sublime form, with one win in two games which included a magnificent performance in the 4-3 defeat to Arsenal on opening day. Were they risky against us? No. Why? For all their sluggishness up front, Leicester were remarkably astute at the back.More news: Barcelona sue Neymar for $13.7m in alleged breach of contract
Rashford has played well in United's opening games, but many feel Martial merits a start on the back of his goalscoring displays from the bench. New signing Harry Maguire once again proved why he will be such a key man for the Foxes this season and was brilliant here once more.
"To come to Old Trafford and allow a set-piece to go in is disappointing".
Paul Pogba slid in and fired inches wide from Anthony Martial's left-wing cross as the hosts kept up the pressure, before Mata was again denied, this time by a magnificent one-handed Schmeichel save to keep out his curling effort. Hopefully he can play in the knockout stage but for that we have to finish in the top two of the group.
