Leicester Talking Points
Manchester United put on a lackluster performance as Fred saved a point in their 1-1 draw with Leicester at Old Trafford.
United were missing a cutting edge without star man Cristiano Ronaldo, who was sidelined with illness, which caused problems for Bruno Fernandes.
The Red Devils fell behind just after the hour mark when Kelechi Iheanacho bent over to head past goalkeeper David de Gea before the hosts equalized within three minutes of going behind when Fred slotted in after Kasper Schmeichel threw a quick shot from Bruno Fernandes saved.
The game, which was brimming with conversation, also left question marks over United’s top-four hopes as they desperately try to salvage something positive from their season.
Rangnick decision slammed
Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville has slammed Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick after Marcus Rashford was left on the bench for the crisis First League Draw against Leicester City.

And the decision didn’t sit well with club legend Neville, who was very critical of United’s line-up.
Neville said the decision was “pretty incredible” considering Rashford will have been training with United for the past few weeks after failing to make the national team squad ahead of the international break.
