Game Report

Highlights

Marcus Rashford's early penalty was enough to secure a narrow but much needed win for Manchester United over Leicester City. Rashford won and converted the spot-kick but the Red Devils had to survive a nervy finish.

Detail

Frantic start to the game as both goalkeepers were worked in the opening minutes. Kasper Schmeichel palmed Andreas Pereira's free-kick out from the top corner whilst David De Gea saved with his legs from James Maddison.

Rashford's pace and awareness allowed him to win a penalty as he got to a loose ball in the box ahead of Caglar Söyüncü who tripped him. The English forward coolly dispatched from 12 yards.

There wasn't much of a response from Leicester to going behind as they struggled to get Jamie Vardy into the game - well marshalled by former Foxes' defender Harry Maguire.

Manchester United looked more likely to add to their lead at times in the second half. Juan Mata forced a smart save from Schmeichel whilst Rashford rattled the frame of the goal with a free-kick.

A tense finale at Old Trafford as Leicester put the pressure on. Wilfred Ndidi went close to a late equaliser with a volley that whizzed just wide.

Summary

Relief for Manchester United who needed this result and it should give them confidence to end a good team's unbeaten run - especially with the players they had missing. Leicester will view this as a missed opportunity - they failed to perform to their best.
