Manchester United entertained Leicester City at Old Trafford earlier tonight as they hoped to earn a positive result at home in the Premier League. The Red Devils made a decent start to the game and scored the opening goal in the 25th minute when Marcus Rashford found the back of the net. Man United sat on their lead well and went into the half-time break 1-0 up on the scoreline.
