Jose Mourinho Cites Tactical Changes as Reason for Convincing Win Over Leicester

Manchester United fans are likely in high spirits today after watching their side beat Leicester City 3-0 on Sunday afternoon, extending their unbeaten run in the Premier League to an impressive 15 matches.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has said he still has a way to go before reaching the targets he has set himself after scoring his 20th goal of the season.

Having made just 22 appearances in all competitions so far this season, with limited minutes, it has been a complete contrast to the role he had under Louis van Gaal a year ago where he became an instant hero with the United faithful.

Just 10 months after their fairytale triumph, Claudio Ranieri's side are languishing two points above the relegation zone after losing their last three matches and winning just one of their previous eight.

Gabriel Jesus started again ahead of Sergio Aguero and scored an injury-time victor - his second goal of the match - in City's 2-1 home victory over Swansea.

Spluttering champions Leicester have made an even worse job of defending the title than Chelsea's pitiful effort under Mourinho's management last season.

"We are Manchester United, we want to play attacking football". Since then, they have achieved another victory against Burnley, and this makes them a threat upfront versus United, who are struggling for goals. So they win the league in the summer.

For one example, Tesla's report would seem to pale in comparison to Waymo's exploits. It went from driving fewer than five miles in June 2015, to almost 400 in June 2016.

Mkhitaryan and Mata started the game in a 4-4-2 system as the two wide midfielders with Marcus Rashford and Ibrahimovic starting up top for the Red Devils. Fuchs did not track Mata from Mkhitaryan's killer pass and, with Morgan playing him onside in the middle, Mata shot comfortably past Schmeichel.

Jose Mourinho's team have recorded nine draws in the league - six of them at Old Trafford - and Ibrahimovic said those stalemates have led to United being off the pace.

"And when the first goal comes everything is easy for us".

"If we had won our games and get the points, we should have got the situation would have been totally different but, okay, now we look at other teams and hope they lose points".

Leicester's top scorer in 2015-16 with 24 goals, Vardy has found the net only five times since the start of the campaign.

"Everybody is frustrated. Of course we aren't happy, we are very sad", he said. "I think in your chair, your perspective is always... if a player is not playing, the manager is, I can not say the word, I have to find a different word... the manager is disturbing him but it's not true".

"We are together, solid like last season but without the results".
