United and Leicester were held to a 1-1 draw in Premier League


United and Leicester were held to a 1-1 draw in Premier League


The points are shared after a 1-1 draw between Manchester United and Leicester City.

Iheanacho scored the opening goal with a stooping header which De Gea couldn’t keep out.

But Fred equalised for the hosts just three minutes later when he fired in the rebound of Fernandes’ saved effort.

Maddison thought he’d won the game for Leicester late on when he fired in at the near post.

But it was ruled out for a foul by Iheanacho on Varane in the build-up. United pushed late on but couldn’t come up with a winner.

Starting Lineup:


Diogo Dalot, Raphael Varane, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw;

Fred, Scott McTominay; Anthony Elanga, Paul Pogba, Jadon Sancho; Bruno Fernandes.

MANCHESTER UNITED SUBS: Alex Telles, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata, Marcus Rashford, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Dean Henderson, Nemanja Matic, Victor Lindelof, Phil Jones.


LEICESTER CITY STARTING XI (4-2-3-1): Kasper Schmeichel;

James Justin, Jonny Evans, Wesley Fofana, Timothy Castagne;

Youri Tielemans, Nampalys Mendy; James Maddison, Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, Harvey Barnes; Kelechi Iheanacho.


LEICESTER CITY SUBS: Daniel Amartey, Eldin Jakupovic, Patson Daka, Caglar Soyuncu, Ayoze Perez, Hamza Choudhury, Ricardo Pereira, Ademola Lookman, Marc Albrighton.


IHEANACHO SCORES! Dewsbury-Hall stopped Fred’s attempt at a counter-attack, and Dewsbury-Hall turns to set Leicester back towards goal. It’s a beautiful, inch-perfect cross from Maddison to pick out Iheanacho, who gets in front of Telles. He heads it back across goal, and De Gea gets a hand to it but can only help it over the line. 1-0 Leicester.

FRED EQUALISES! Varane and Fred cut out Schmeichel’s clearance and help it onto Fernandes, who takes it around Fofana before drilling a low shot on goal. Schmeichel gets down to push it away, but Fred follows in to rifle it into the roof of the net from close range. 1-1.

So, what’s next?

United missed the chance to leapfrog Tottenham into fifth, though they are now level on points with them.

Instead, they travel to Everton for their next game. That point moves Leicester up to ninth, but their attention now turns to their Europa Conference League quarter-final against PSV Eindhoven on Thursday.
