Incredible Henrikh Mkhitaryan stat emerges during Man United 2

Incredible Henrikh Mkhitaryan stat emerges during Man United 2

The Frenchman will join Romelu Lukaku in the attack for Manchester United, as Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who already has four assists this season and Juan Mata also playing in the attack.

Ronald Koeman's Everton impressed in their 1-1 draw at Manchester City on Monday with Wayne Rooney scoring his second goal in as many games. Monaco have claimed Lemar is not for sale this summer, but reports have indicated a transfer of £45 million or more could land the player at Old Trafford.

Luke Shaw (ankle) and Ashley Young (hamstring) are both closing in on full fitness after playing for an hour in United's U23 clash with Swansea on Monday, while Marcos Rojo returned to training on Tuesday after several months out with a serious knee problem.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic could be set for a return to the club as well. New signing Kelechi Iheanacho only makes the bench as he nurses a toe injury.

Lukaku, who scored three goals in the opening two games of his Manchester United career, has five goals in the last five Premier League outings against Leicester City.

Then in the 52nd minute, Jose Mourinho's side worked the ball wide to Martial who crossed it, only for the ball to strike the arm of Danny Simpson, and Michael Oliver awarded Utd a penalty.

United began the first-half in dominant fashion with Paul Pogba coming close to breaking the deadlock on several occasions, but his attempts, from a variety of ranges, all narrowly missed the target.

Leicester produced an excellent display at Arsenal on the opening day of the season and were unfortunate to return home empty-handed as two late goals cost them in a breathless 4-3 defeat.

"Were Leicester unsafe against Arsenal [when they lost 4-3]?"

"I think they are the same team as they were two seasons ago", Mourinho told a media conference on Friday. "I would say no because we played very well to control that", Mourinho said.

"I know the three places, I never played against Benfica in the Champions League but of course, I know the dimension and the quality". But we spent a lot of time together, learning each other.

"We had a very good and solid performance. I think the right way is not even to think about it. Let him do his work, step by step and come back when he is ready".

Manchester United have also been linked with other players this week, but none of them would fall into the category of big transfer deal.

Who will come out on top in the battle of the managers José Mourinho or Craig Shakespeare?

Just before the global break, Mourinho has opted against making wholesale changes changes to the team that won their first two Premier League games.
