post-match reactions

Christian Eriksen

It wasn’t a beautiful 90 minutes, but we won three. I wish I could do better, but it’s a good start. It was like Southampton – we have to finish the game early. Games will be held on Thursday/Sunday until the World Cup is over.

Jadon Sancho

It was a great goal for the team and I’m really happy to get the three points. I am more comfortable. It was nice to get to know the team in pre-season – even though we didn’t get to see them last year – and we worked on a few things.

It was a nostalgic game, ended with a stunning goal from Jadon Sancho. It’s too early to say United are back, but Eric ten Hag will be happy with a clean sheet away. The last time it happened in the league was in March 2021. Casemiro was good when he came on, and the new centre-back pairing of Lisandro Martinez and Rafael Varane was once again impressive.

Leicester played well in midfield but lacked confidence in the final third. They need to win ASAP.

Full time: Leicester 0-1 Manchester United

Beep! Manchester United moved up to fifth place after winning three games in a row.

90+3 mins: Great chance for Leicester! The forward’s long ball was skillfully touched by Daka in space to Justin’s right. He has touch but shoots high and wide off the edge of the area. It was Leicester’s best chance in the game.

90+2 minutes After a good move from Leicester, Madison hit a left-footed shot from 20 yards. He created space well and pulled away from Casemiro but put his shot up.

90 minutes 4 minutes of additional time.

89 minutes Since Casemiro’s arrival, United’s dominance of the game has improved significantly. Fernandez moves down the right and hits a cross that hits the stretched Ijeanacho and flies right over the bar.

87 min: Man United replacement Fred by Marcus Rashford.

87 min: Leicester change Patson Daka replaced Jamie Vardy.

87 minutes Vardy is on record as having filed a dissent after possibly being severely penalized for a tackle on Marathia.

86 minutes It’s a better spell for United, who spent most of their final minutes at the Leicester half.

84 minutes Fernandes slides a through ball down the inside right channel towards Ronaldo, who hits a low cross/shot that evades Eriksen in the middle. Ronaldo looks sharp tonight.

83 minutes Dewsbury-Hall has a long-range shot blocked by Martinez. United break and Dalot crosses over the far post to Ronaldo. He starts scissoring his kick, which ricochets several yards wide with Ward after it hits the ground.

82 minutes Fernandez Nutmeg Thomas and a pass to Rashford on the left. He plays for Ronaldo and tries to give Eriksen an open goal with a low first cross. Nicely cut by sliding defender Ndidi, I think. United got the ball back and Rashford fired a left-footed shot from around 15 yards out.

81 minutes nothing is happening It was a bloodless match.

78 minutes Thomas successfully stopped Dalot’s low pass/cross finding its way to Eriksen in the area.

76 minutes Casemiro is playing well, bringing composure and authority to United’s midfield. He puts so many things on the ball. Meanwhile, Leicester have signed Kelechi Ihenacho in place of Yuri Tielemans. This should mean switching to 4-4-2.

73 minutes A dangerous through ball from Fernandez to Dalot was successfully cut by Evans. BT Sport stats showed that Leicester had only seven touches in the United area all night.

71 minutes Barnes runs Dalot in the area and tries to cross into the 6-yard box. Dalot slides in and blocks, the ball bounces off Barnes and goes for a goal kick. Varane and Martinez have directly congratulated Dalot, but this is either a sign of improved team spirit or a slightly unnatural reaction when winning a goal kick.

70 minutes This was a very unforgettable game.

68 min: United substitution Cristiano Ronaldo replaced Jadon Sancho, who scored good goals but was otherwise quiet. Marcus Rashford moved to the left wing.

67 minutes Madison’s free kick hits the wall.

65 minutes McTominay put his hand on Madison at the edge of the diamond and allowed a dangerous free-kick. This is an opportunity for Leicester.

64 minutes Barnes turns Dalot cleanly and slides the ball for birdie, but falls short on that return pass. United have had problems with their passive performances in the second half.

62 minutes Casemiro has already made a couple good interceptions, but Leicester continue to dominate possession.

59 min: United substitution Casemiro will replace Anthony Eranga. Eriksen will move to No. 10 and Fernandez to the right wing.

57 minutes Casemiro is preparing to compete.
