F.A Cup champions Man U. defeated Premier League champions Leicester City 2-1 yesterday to win the community shield, handing Jose Mourinho and new star signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic their first silverware with the club.

A Zlatan Ibrahimovic second half goal was all that was needed to overcome a resilient Leicester City side who had equalized through Jamie Vardy after youngster Jesse Lingard scored the first goal of the game.


Jose Mourinho started the match with new signing Eric Bailly and Daley Blind manning the defence while Rooney, Lingard and Superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic handled the attack.

Leicester City, still basking in the euphoria of being crowned Premier League champions started with a team almost identical to their title winning team of last season with N'golo Kante, who recently signed for Chelsea the major exception, while new boy Ahmed Musa had to make do with a place on the bench.

Jesse Lingard, United's FA Cup final match-winner against Crystal Palace in May, gave new boss Jose Mourinho's men a 32 minute lead with a stunning solo goal.

He picked the ball up just inside Leicester's half, dribbled past four Leicester players and slotted the ball past goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.
Nigerian winger Ahmed Musa showed how much of a constant threat he could be on the wing after he was introduced at halftime alongside Demarai Gray.

Leicester City hero Jamie Vardy equalised seven minutes into the second half after pouncing on Marouane Fellaini's poor back-pass and dribbling past goalkeeper David De Gea.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic was standing fractionally offside when Antonio Valencia delivered a stand-up cross from the right side to which he jumped and headed into the net after shrugging off Leicester City captain Wes Morgan.

It was a not too important match but in terms of a trophy, increasing fitness levels and mental preparation ahead of the premier league season which starts next weekend and Paul Pogba's imminent record breaking arrival, Jose Mourinho will be happy to have won the match.
