Marcus Rashford scored the only goal from the penalty spot in the 8th minute after being tripped by Leicester defender, Caglar Soyuncu. Rashford could have got another goal in the second half but his free-kick from 30 yards curled over the wall missing the goalpost.

This result means that Manchester United creeps their way back into the top 4, with Leicester being at the 5th place. The only positive thing for Manchester United is that they have rediscovered their winning form. Red Devils won this game even with missing a number of key players due to their injuries. Ole Gunnar Solskjær can probably accept the fact that their performance never got any higher than six out of 10 as there were signs of being fatigued and complacency during the play.
