Leicester City achieved a statement Premier League victory over Manchester United on Saturday, emerging from a wild game at the King Power Stadium as 4-2 winners.

United face a tough run of fixtures in the coming weeks and this was a nightmare start for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side. The Red Devils did in fact begin well against the Foxes here, with Mason Greenwood slamming a finish past Kasper Schmeichel, off the post and in to give United the lead in the first half. But Leicester soon hit back as Youri Tielemans clipped the deftest of finishes into the top corner of the visitors’ net.

As such, the score was 1-1 at the break, but Caglar Soyuncu put the hosts ahead as the final whistle neared, stabbing home the ball in the aftermath of a Leicester corner. United found the perfect response through returning substitute Marcus Rashford, who smashed a strike past Schmeichel to equalise seconds after Soyuncu’s goal, but Solskjaer’s side at once got a taste of their own medicine. Jamie Vardy slashed a half-volley past David de Gea to restore Leicester’s lead, immediately after Rashford’s goal, before Patson Daka finished United off in injury time.
