Manchester United has Saturday convincingly dealt with the series of two defeats in a row in the Premier League. Daley Blind played a key role in the 4-1 victory at champion Leicester City.

Chris Smalling, Juan Mata, Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba found the net for the team of José Mourinho, that his captain Wayne Rooney had passed. All the goals scored by United came in the first half and three of the four goals came after a corner of the Blind.

After an hour, made a substitute Demarai Gray’s score at Old Trafford with a beautiful hit something more bearable for Leicester.

United lost its last two league games against Manchester City (1-2) and Watford (3-1). In between, it was Feyenoord in the Europa League too strong for the ‘Mancunians’ (1-0). Last Wednesday, won the team from Manchester in the League Cup but Northampton Town (1-3).

United is now in any case, for a moment at the third place of the Premier League with twelve points from six matches. Leicester City already has three defeats suffered, just as much as in the whole previous season. The defending champion is twelfth with seven points.

United started without Rooney, who in the last few weeks heavily criticized by the English media. Mourinho preferred to Mata as a number 10 behind striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Blind was also at the base, though the Dutchman as full and not as a central defender. He showed his value with the opening goal midway through the first half. From a corner of the old-following his departure to chelsea was Smalling hit the ball with a bounce behind goalkeeper Ron-Robert Zieler.

The 1-0 was the boost that the home team needed, and United ran between the 37th and the 42nd minute far away in Leicester. First lap Mata the ball after a beautiful attack of eighteen passes with the left in the far corner (2-0). Just then drew Rashford from a corner of the Blind via Mata for the 3-0 and Pogba decided the duel final by a cross from Blind from a new corner, inside headlines (4-0).

It was the first Premier League goal for the most expensive footballer in the world and the first time that a reigning Premier League champion, four goals against in the first half of a league game.

Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri took the rest in and got his star players Jamie vardy granted and Riyad Mahrez of the field. Gray, the replacement for vardy granted, resulted in the 59th minute with the first shot of the visitors between the posts – a beautiful staircase in the intersection – even for the 4-1, but came ‘The Foxes’.
