Leicester City started well. After threatening first, Leicester finally took the lead when the game lasted 10 minutes.

MU only needed five minutes to create an equalizer. Amad Diallo beat Thomas’s guard, before hitting Mason Greenwood in the penalty box. He twisted and then fired a shot at the far post that Kasper Schmeichel could not reach. Current position 1-1.

Good save by David de Gea. In the 27th minute, Tielemans sends a cross to Kelechi Iheanacho. De Gea tucks the ball over the bar for a corner.

After halftime, MU created opportunities that started from a free-kick situation. However, Greenwood’s header hit the Leicester defender so it only became a corner.

De Gea made a crucial save before the game rolled around in an hour. Tielemans received Iheanacho, then continued with a shot from the near post. De Gea successfully holds the ball with his chest.

Leicester was back in front in the 66th minute. Marc Albrighton’s corner fell into the penalty box. Caglar Soyuncu was greeted with a killer header that rushed through De Gea without being able to stop. The position is now 2-1 for Leicester’s excellence.

Leicester’s incursion less than 10 minutes later was quite dangerous. Jamie Vardy received a pass from midfield in the penalty box then Tielemans continued with a shot from close range. The ball is narrowly wide.

MU attack intensity increased in the last 10 minutes. Alex Telles sends a pass to Juan Mata down the left flank to follow with a low cross into the center. Fofana deflected Cavani’s effort, then the ball rebounded at Bruno Fernandes with a volley despite being off-target.

There is not much Man United can do in the remainder of the game. In the end, Leicester City’s 2-1 advantage lasted until the match ended.
