The duo have been at the heart of everything that has been good about the cub in recent weeks and they were at it again this afternoon as United played Leicester at the King Power Stadium.
Manchester United are putting fourth-placed Chelsea FC under pressure following a brilliant run of seven successive Premier League games without defeat.
"I think at the moment we are mixing very well when we receive the ball between the lines and we have to run into the space".

That won't be easy, and getting anything less than seven points could put them in a super tough spot midway through the month. When a lot of teams play with a very deep block, it's because they need to play like that and can also have chances to win.
"But you're away with three points, which is fantastic, a great reaction after last week's disappointment with the loss of two points and the performance against Burnley".
Speaking ahead of the trip to face the Foxes, he said: "When I rang the owner and said that United had called and that he always knew that this had been my dream, he said: "Go over, enjoy yourself - and please don't come back". He said, "I think he can look back on these games and say he is on his way. He is one those lads who want to improve, who sees his game and wants to see what could have done better".
But the former Southampton manager has continued to impress and keep his side in the hunt for a first Premier League title, being just two points behind second place Manchester City.
The 46 year old was considered the leading candidate to take the permanent manager's position at Old Trafford in the summer but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's start to his interim job may have changed things.
