Manchester United vs Leicester City: 5 things we learned

Yet another draw, yet another 2 points lost. Manchester United sit 7th at the table after drawing with Leicester City.

1) United looks like a mid-table team

Manchester United went into the game knowing they have to keep their top 4 race going. However, they looked like a stereotypical mid-table team that only played good in patches. There were some signs of life after the first half but it was too little too late for the home team. Hence, they finished the match attaining a single point.

2) Rashford handed a snub

With Ronaldo out of the game, Rashford could’ve easily replaced him and Rangnick could’ve kept his tactics intact. However, he changed his approach and chose to play without a striker which is not good for a player like Rashford.

3) Luke Shaw suffers an injury

Luke Shaw went down late in the first half and was only able to continue till halftime. He was replaced by Alex Telles after the first half. Hoping this issue is not too serious and wish him a speedy recovery.

4) Fred has improved hugely

With 4 assists and 4 goals in his bag, Fred’s season has been nothing short of majestic. The Brazilian made a sloppy start to the season but has been improving with every game. It’s really been great, his improvement from the last season to this.

5) Harry Maguire gave a solid performance

The captain was on England duty and United fans showed their support for him and he put up a solid performance. According to WhoScored, he made more clearances and interceptions than any other United player on the pitch. Rangnick said: “Harry played well. He had an almost flawless game today, offensively and defensively solid.”
