The Red Devils managed a 0-1 win at the King Power Stadium as utility player Paul Pogba proved decisive in the fixture. He set up Marcus Rashford with a beauty of a pass as the English talent finished with aplomb to give United the lead.
This eventually proved to be the winner as the Red Devils picked up the massive three points away from former Champions (English) Leicester City.
This sees Ole Gunnar Solskjaer emerge the happier of the two managers as they visit Craven Cottage to face Fulham at the weekend. We evaluate the three takeaways from the game.
United Revives Their Chances
Manchester United revived their (slim) chance for top four spots as they nailed the home side 0-1 at home courtesy of Rashford’s strike in the match.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may have given himself a mighty backing here as his managerial chances at Manchester United continues to gather momentum.
This is evident as the gap between Arsenal and United narrows down following contrasting fortune for both sides at the weekend.
(Paul) Pogba Was Spot On
The French star was at the heart of United’s attacking play as they (his Red Devils side) took the lead before the hour mark.
The Leicester City defence gave away from the ball and Pogba capitalized with the loose ball to set-up hot sensation Marcus Rashford.
This is what United will be proud of as they sealed the maximum points at home prior to tough matches in the days ahead like the one against French champions (Paris Saint-German) PSG.
That’s what Pogba brings as he continues to inspire United with an impressive form on the pitch.
For another week of eye-catching football, the Red Devils are yet to lose a game since the takeover of club legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
This was evident as they continue to prove unstoppable coupled with their scintillating attacking incision down the opponent’s area against Leicester City.
This has seen Solskjaer raise eyebrows at the club as he aims to emulate his manager Sir Alex Ferguson, who guided Manchester United to numerous achievements at the club for a long time.
