Michael Owen states his prediction for Man United v Leicester

Manchester United's historic record against Leicester is quite positive, too.

As Martial scored his fourth and the final goal of the game-the third in a devastating four-minute spell as United racked up the numbers-the camera panned towards an inert Mourinho nodding his head approving of the result, even failing to notice one of his assistants trying to congratulate him in a celebratory manner.

Andrey Arshavin claimed a remarkable four-goal haul in a dramatic 4-4 draw at Anfield to deliver a serious blow to Liverpool's title ambitions.

Vicente Iborra, Robert Huth, Danny Drinkwater and Kelechi Iheanacho are all doubts as well.

Martin Fisher: "Six points, eight goals scored and none conceded".

Manchester United looks as if they are here to win the League; they look confident, their players have good understanding between them, after having 2-3 bad seasons, and now under Jose Mourinho United looks like the old Red Devils of Sir Alex Ferguson.

To the delight of the Foxes faithful, summer signing Harry Maguire has made a big impression since joining the club from a Hull City.

Jose Mourinho and his Man United team are firing on all cylinders! "I am nobody to tell him agree, not agree, to do it or not do it, just listened to his reasons and I understand his reasons". He doesn't do that.

Last week, this column along with many others was discussing the latest decline and fall of Roman Abramovich's Chelsea empire.

"There have been a couple more added overnight". It's nearly as if he was going "I told you so" at anyone who would listen. Looking at United play in the first two matches, it seems that they will surpass that total tally much earlier in the season this time around.

"Leicester's game against Arsenal ended with a defeat but could have ended with a victory", Mourinho said on Friday during his pre-match press conference.

United will play their second game of the season at Old Trafford. The game kicks off at 17:30 BST. Once again, Manchester United players like Romelu Lukaku and Paul Pogba are making an appearance, while Jack Butland and Marcos Alonso show up thanks to terrific performances.

At the back, Manchester United look unbeatable at the moment and, as many predicted in the offseason, will probably have the most clean sheets come the end of the season.

He also knows that his team have the extra burden of a Champions League campaign starting next month.

It is not just the Belgium global who is impressing his manager, though, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan also earning praise after four assists.

"There's a lot of players contributing to goals which is crucial to winning the league". Leicester City, Stoke, and Southampton were able to pull off home victories in their second week of Premier League fixtures.

Shinji Okazaki could score in three consecutive Premier League games for the first time in his career.

It's not been the best of starts for West Ham this season, but at least Hammers fans can take solace in the fact that Hernandez is already off the mark.

Probability of away win: 7%.
