Jose Mourinho has aimed a thinly veiled dig at Arsenal after Manchester United’s 2-0 victory over Leicester City at Old Trafford on Saturday.

After a goalless first half at Old Trafford, goals from Marcus Rashford and Marouane Fellaini wrapped up the three points for Jose Mourinho’s men and kept the Red Devils top of the Premier League table.

Manchester United have made a flying start to the new season and have now scored 10 goals in their last three games without reply.

The Red Devils were successful in keeping Jamie Vardy quiet at Old Trafford on their way towards victory on Saturday evening.

And Mourinho could not help but mention Arsenal and their 4-3 win over Leicester when asked about how his team managed to claim victory over the Foxes at the weekend.

Speaking at his post match news conference, Mourinho said: “Is Vardy a very dangerous player? I would say one of the most dangerous players in the Premier League.

“Was he dangerous today? No.

“Why? Because we played so well to control that.

“[Were] Leicester very dangerous against Arsenal? Yes they were.

“I watched the match three times. Were they dangerous against us? No. Why? Because of us.”

Manchester United are aiming to win the Premier League title for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement in 2013 this season.

The Red Devils, who finished sixth and won the Europa League last season, will return to top flight action after the international break when they take on Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium on Saturday 9 September.
