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.

GK: David de Gea – 7/10

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.

CM: Fred – 8/10

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

Fernandes tried his best to lead the line as a centre-forward and played a big role in the lead-up to Fred’s equaliser.


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.

CM: Nemanja Matic – 6/10

Matic added some energy to Ralf Rangnick’s midfield.
