Leicester City 1-1 Manchester United - REPORT

Manchester United managed to keep Leicester City at bay for 25 minutes, but Leicester broke from a United corner, and Christian Fuchs’ superb through-ball was finished by Vardy to put them ahead.

United then collapsed in the face of pressure, losing the ball and across the defence, but somehow managed to prevent Leicester scoring again in the half. Then, with a minute remaining of the game, Daley Blind’s corner found a barely marked Bastian Schweinsteiger a few yards out, who headed into equalise.

In the second half, United dominated possession and continued to press with little sophistication, and Leicester were happy to sit off them. It was Leicester who almost scored when Riyad Mahrez slipped in Leonardo Ulloa, who scuffed a shot straight at David de Gea.

United had the ball for almost all of the match, but did not once look like scoring after Schweinsteiger’s equaliser.
