Pearson: United have swagger back

Leicester boss Nigel Pearson feels Manchester United have got their "swagger" back ahead of their Barclays Premier League clash on Sunday.

United look like they have a swagger back, they have added quality. Whenever there is a change in manager you can have people who have a short-term impact.

When you have someone in charge for as long as Sir Alex (Ferguson) the transition period will never be easy.

They have been a huge presence within the English game for a long time. I'm sure they will reignite that at some point.

Pearson praise for Cambiasso

Leicester manager Nigel Pearson has praised the impact made so far by Esteban Cambiasso, even though he has yet to kick a ball in anger.

He is doing very well.

He talked about his English not being proficient, but he's a very good communicator.

That's always a big plus when you have a player of his experience and quality.

He's had nothing but a positive effect and that is testament to his own ability and character as a person. We're very pleased.

Pearson hails striker Ulloa

Boss Nigel Pearson insists Leonardo Ulloa is already justifying his £8million price tag after a red hot start to the season.

He has proved he has the capability to perform at this level and that's key to it. He is a very good player anyway. Maybe people's appreciation on what he brings to the side might be improving.

It was a tough game physically and he has taken his goal well. He'll be disappointed not to finish the one in the second half, but it was a great bit of football and a super bit of skill.
