Manchester United returned from the international break with a slender victory over Leicester City at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.

An 8th minute penalty converted by Marcus Rashford was enough to ensure a 1-0 win over the Foxes, and the victory ensured that United leaped ahead of Leicester City and currently occupy fourth place.

United have now kept their second clean sheet of the campaign and summer signing Harry Maguire has urged his fellow teammates to make Old Trafford a fortress.

Maguire said after the game: “We knew it was important to get the win, especially after the international break.

“We have to build on a solid base and we want to keep clean sheets, especially at Old Trafford.

“We are always going to score goals with the attacking talent we have. We could have kept the ball better but we defended well.

“The boys who came in looked sharp and fit and a big well done to them.

“We have games coming thick and fast and I’m sure the manager will utilise the squad, so be patient and take you chance when you get it.”
