Manchester United standings: Paul Pogba and David de Gea brilliant – Samuel Luckhurst

David de Gea broke a superb shot by James Maddison in the 29th to preserve United's half-time advantage and made another stop at Demarai Gray. 8 Matthew Darmian subject to errors and targeted by Gray and Ben Chilwell of Leicester. It seemed that he would prefer to be in Italy and still has time to leave. 5 Eric Bailly Formidable throughout and made some contrasts while Leicester threatened to equalize. Essential for the United title, he hopes Bailly stays in shape. 8 Victor Lindelof It took some time to adapt to the frenetic pace and Maddison's opening came from Luke Shaw's defense. It improved in the second half. 7 Luke Shaw He approached the game to the attitude of someone playing for their united future and his enthusiasm led to a first career goal. 8 Andreas Pereira Almost four years after his debut in the UK he had a Premier League start and took the opportunity. Played with grit and cunning in midfield. 7 Paul Pogba His first touch was a precise crosspoint pass and improved with the penalty. Untamable sometimes and improved over time. 8

Pogba scored 1-0
Fred had no problems with the fast time and passed adventurously. It certainly eased the burden on Captain Pogba, but it vanished in the second half. 6 Juan Mata Tidy but lacked the engraving on an overwhelming night for the United strikers. I wasted an excellent chance to make it 2-0. 6 Alexis Sanchez He won the penalty early but disappointed after an excellent pre-season. I had to deal with Lindelof and Marcus Rashford for carelessness. 5 Marcus Rashford United surrendered possession almost every time the ball fell to Rashford's feet. The decision-making process was often amateurish and was replaced first. 5 Subs Romelu Lukaku Wasted a great chance. 5 Scott McTominay Hurry up. 5 Marouane Fellaini He opened the ball out of the game for everyone except for the game. 6 Get all the latest Manchester United news first with our new app. Download it here now.
