Manchester United went into this game on a nine game unbeaten run under Solskjaer, but suffered their first draw under the Norwegian manager on Tuesday. A Pogba penalty and Lindelof’s first United goal brought United back from 2-0 down after 81 minutes to 2-2 and narrowly missing the chance to win their seventh league game in a row. Leicester City on the other hand, have been in disastrous form since a superb 2-1 win over Manchester City on Boxing Day. The Foxes have slumped to four losses out of their last six games including a 2-1 loss to League Two side Newport County and a 0-1 loss at home to a now 18th place Cardiff City. Leicester did gain a creditable draw over a lacklustre Liverpool on Wednesday after Harry Maguire equalised at the end of the first half and Liverpool failed to take advantage of Leicester’s poor form of late. This game had the potential to challenge Ole’s unbeaten run and potentially lift some of the pressure off Claude Puel who seems to be the next Premier League manager to be sacked after losing the fans through his stagnant, defensive-based football.
