3 talking points from Manchester United’s 3-0 thumping of Leicester City

Manchester United moved within touching distance of Top 4 with an emphatic 3-0 victory against Ranieri’s sorry foxes side.

With United currently enjoying a 15 game unbeaten run in the League, let us take a look at the key talking points following this impressive performance:

  • MKHITARYAN THE MAGICIAN


Henrikh Mkhitaryan played number 10 down the middle and scored a classy opener besides assisting one for Mata. Mickey was frozen out of the squad initially this season after arriving from Borussia in the summer. The Armenian has acted as the catalyst in this rejuvenated United side who are enjoying a 15 game unbeaten run. Mourinho was in full praise of him in the post match presser.

  • ZLATAN IS LIKE A FINE WINE GETTING BETTER WITH AGE

      At 35 years and 125 days, Ibrahimovic became the oldest player to score 15 goals in a single PL season. Additionally, it was also Zlatan’s 20th goal in all competitions this season. Ibrahimovic arrived on a free signing last summer and is set to be handed a contract extension.

  • WAYNE ROONEY NOT BEING MISSED AT UNITED ANYMORE


Rooney (31) was left out of the squad to face the Foxes following an illness. Most of all, he was certainly not missed by fans and manager alike. Ibrahimovic started with Rashford up front and the masterclass of Mata and Mickey tucked in behind. It is becoming increasingly difficult to imagine a fully fit Rooney breaking into this team oozing with class.
