Philosophical Manchester United hold Leicester City to a draw

By Iftakhar Sheikh

In a league like the Premier League, the Red devils style of play is slower than a snail. The color of Manchester if by chance is red then it’s still dull and boring red.

United were against the most in form team in any European league and that too at their own backyard. The stakes were high as it was a top of the table clash and Leicester City have been the surprise package in the premier league.

The big question for united was can they take on big teams or teams in red hot form now. But it looks like United are still a long way behind where they expect to be. United were dominant in possession as they usually are but with 68% possession for a side that’s playing away from home you must do better.

United were slow and inefficient more importantly purposeless with that possession. Jamie Vardy opened the scoring in the 24th minute in record breaking manner after a brilliant pass by Christian Fuchs. This was Vardy’s record breaking goal as he becomes the first player ever in premier league to score in 11 consecutive games.

United then equalized right at the stroke of half time as Daley blind set up Schweinstiger who scored with imminent grace.

The game was pretty much open in the second half. Chances fell both ways although Leicester had much better chances yet they failed to capitalize upon it.

The game ended 1-1 in a match where both sides felt they could have achieved more.
