Leicester City vs.  Manchester United - Match Report - October 16, 2021

Leicester City took a crazy game against Manchester United (4-2) and leaves Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hanging by a thread, who has won one of the last five games.

The set of the ‘Red Devils’ was unable to get anything positive from Leicester, in a match in which Cristiano Ronaldo, who had scored four goals in two games with Portugal, was missing, and in which the visiting defense made waters .

Without Raphael Varane and with a Harry Maguire lacking rhythm after a month out, David de Gea was not enough to stop the attack of the ‘Foxes’, who still started behind on the scoreboard after a whiplash from Mason Greenwood.

Youri Tielemans reacted with another goal and twelve minutes from the end, when United seemed more connected, Soyuncu took advantage of a noise in the area, after a stop by De Gea, to push the 2-1. The joy of Brendan Rodgers only lasted four minutes and that is that Victor Lindelof took a spectacular pass from 30 meters to leave Marcus Rashford alone in front of Kasper Schmeichel.

The English striker, who had not yet made his debut this season, shot the Dane, momentarily saving Solskjaer’s skin. But the worst was yet to come. As soon as Leicester got out of the center, two touches, Ayoze Pérez planted himself in De Gea’s area, put a pass back and Jamie Vardy impaled the ball to the squad. His seventh goal of the season (one from Mohamed Salah in the race for the top scorer), killed United, who still received the fourth already in discount, through Patson Daka.

Cristiano’s, waiting for the day to be completed, fall from the Champions League positions and are fifth, with fourteen units, the same as Everton, which has one game less, and four from the leader, Liverpool.

Leicester, who have had a difficult start to the championship, are eleventh, with eleven points.
