Manchester United maintained their 100 per cent record after substitutes Marcus Rashford and Marouane Fellaini came off the bench to help spared the blushes of Romelu Lukaku who missed a penalty and ensure the Red Devils sit atop the English Premier League table.United enjoyed huge possession and started the game very brightly, but they were left frustrated as the game seem to be ending with the score remaining goalless and when Lukaku’s spot-kick was brilliantly kept out by Kasper Schmeichel early in the second half, Jose Mourinho switched things around with his substitutes.19-year-old Rashford connected with Henrik Mkhitayran’s corner after 70 minutes shortly after being sent on to replace Juan Mata. And Fellaini, another switch from Jose Mourinho, sealed the points when he got a touch to Jesse Lingard’s cross-shot with the outside of his right knee.The result means United have now won their first three matches of the season – just as they did last season. This time however they have a far meaner look about them and still haven’t conceded a goal.Among the 75,000 fans who enjoyed the final outcome was multiple Olympic sprint champion and United diehard Usain Bolt.Photo Credit: Getty
