Manchester United welcomed Leicester City at Old Trafford earlier this evening as they looked to earn a positive result at home. The Red Devils were solid in the first 45 minutes and went into the half-time interval with a goalless scoreline.
Kelechi Iheanacho finally broke the deadlock in the 63rd minute when he scored with a good header. However, Man United equalised just three minutes later when Fred found the back of the net from a tight angle. The match ended with the Mancunian outfit playing out a 1-1 draw at the Theatre of Dreams.
Let’s take a look at how each Man United player performed during the clash against the Foxes.

The Spanish keeper made a couple of world-class saves to rescue a point for his team.
RB: Diogo Dalot – 6.5/10
He looked vulnerable defensively but made two key chances in the Leicester half.
CB: Harry Maguire – 7/10
Maguire earned the ball back a few times inside his half and cleared his lines when needed. He was also accurate with his passing.
CB: Raphael Varane – 6.5/10
Varane put his foot through the ball when required but produced a disjointed display in the second half.
LB: Luke Shaw – 6.5/10
He made a couple of decent opportunities in the first half but got replaced at half-time.
CM: Scott McTominay – 6.5/10
McTominay made two good runs with the ball and was strong in the air.

The Brazilian talent did his fair share of defending and was great going forward. He scored Man United’ equaliser with a tidy finish and completed some energetic dribbles from midfield.
RW: Anthony Elanga – 6/10
He was strong in the air but was quite disappointing in the final third.
CAM: Paul Pogba – 6/10
Pogba had a few lively moments but offered very little in the final third. He got substituted in the 74th minute.
LW: Jadon Sancho – 6.5/10
He made two good opportunities from the left wing but didn’t do enough to score today.
ST: Bruno Fernandes – 7/10

LB: Alex Telles – 6/10
He had one bright moment in the second half.
ST: Marcus Rashford – 6/10
His impact on the game was minimal.
