Man United are digging themselves an early hole in the Premier League

After the international break, Manchester United returned with a bad feeling. The Red Devils have one point from their two home games against Aston Villa and Everton.

With seven games under their belts, Leicester had eight points. This illustrates just how important the match was.

A win is necessary for Man United to challenge for the title. It was crucial that Leicester City got their season back on track.

Amazing goals in the first half

We had a lot of fun during the first half. A beautiful goal from Mason Greenwood started the scoring.

That lead was desperately needed by Man United. Their lead didn’t last long on the scoreboard, however. Youri Tielemans also scored a beautiful goal to tie things up after a little longer than 10 minutes. The score was 1-1 at the half-time break.

Too little, too late

There appeared to be much less entertainment in the second half for a long time. The 2-1 Leicester goal came from Turkish defender Caglar Soyoncu in the 78th minute. That was the beginning of the end.

Man United equalized four minutes after the 2-1. After returning from an injury, Marcus Rashford received a great ball from Victor Lindelof and netted an ice-cold goal. Minutes after Rashford scored, Jamie Vardy scored the 3-2 winner for Leicester City.

Patson Daka scored the final goal for Leicester City with ten minutes to go in the match. The Zambia striker, one of Leicester City’s big summer transfers, has now scored four goals in four games for the club.
