Bench Players Becoming Key Contributors For Manchester United This Season

Bench Players Becoming Key Contributors For Manchester United This Season

United's second consecutive 4-0 win was not a fair reflection compared to what happened on the pitch.

The organized Foxes were resolutely holding on well into the second half, containing United's attacking juggernaut while threatening on the counter attack.

Manchester United new-boy Victor Lindelof admits it has been tough watching from the sidelines after failing to make his Premier League debut for the club in the first three games of the season. Perisic has seemingly U-turned on his intention to join United and looks set to sign a new contract with Inter, while Bale has started both of Real's opening two La Liga games in a strong indication he will be involved in Zinedine Zidane's plans. Had he scored, the Belgium worldwide would have become the first United player since Jimmy Hanson in 1925 to score in his first four competitive games.

The Frenchman didn't score, but the man who replaced him on 74 minutes, Fellaini, did.

We will know the true capability of this defensive unit once they face one of the so-called "top-six" teams, particularly Liverpool, whose irrepressible forward line possesses the capability to wreak havoc against even the best defence in the world.

He went on to say that, " Venezuela is not very far away and the people are suffering and they're dying". Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos called military action "unacceptable" as he stood next to Pence.

Lindelof is still young and will come good only once he motivates himself to take up the challenge of playing for the biggest club in England. The group is solid, very, very friendly in between games and [there is] great empathy.

He added: "If I don't have them on the bench I can't make successful changes".

The substitutes Marcus Rashford and Marouane Fellaini broke Leicester down in the final quarter after Kasper Schmeichel saved a Romelu Lukaku penalty.

Last season, lest we forget, Man United beat Bournemouth, Southampton and Hull in their opening three matches. "We tried, our finishing was not good, but we are there". Normally when you miss a penalty with half an hour to go there is a little collapse.

"We kept creating, playing, creating chances and getting corners, and in the end it was from a corner that we scored the first goal".
