It was one way traffic at Old Trafford as host Manchester United dominated from start to finish in a comfortable 2-0 win over Leicester City.

Nigerian international midfielder Wilfred Ndidi found the combination of French star Pogba and Matic a herculean task in the center of the pack.

The first half saw missed chances by in-form red devils as Jose Mourinho’s side controlled possession and dictated the pace of the game.

The first half ended 0-0 with a disallowed Juan Mata goal the only major incident.
The second half continued as the first, but it seemed luck was about running out on the red devils when league top scorer Romelu Lukaku missed a penalty that was well saved by goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.

But substitutes Rashford and Felliani soon settled nerves at Old Trafford with goals in the 70th and 82nd minutes respectively.

There was no place for invited Super Eagles duo of Kelechi Iheanacho and Ahmed Musa in the foxes team.

While Kelechi Iheanacho was an unused substitute, Musa did not make the matchday squad.

Manchester United remains firmly in charge at the top of the English premier League table with three wins from three scoring ten goals and conceding none.

Leicester City however have lost two out of their three games so far both away to Arsenal and Manchester United.

The trio of Ndidi, Musa and Iheanacho are expected to arrive Nigeria on Sunday.
