Premier League

Leicester City 4-2 Man United. Foxes End United's Long Unbeaten Run

Manchester United's 29 matches unbeaten run in the English Premier League came to an end in shambolic fashion at the hands of Leicester City. The record English champions were punished for their mistakes at the back to eventually go down 4-2 at the King Power Stadium.

United came into the match without Rapahel Varane and his partner Harry Maguire hurried back from injury to start against his former team. 

United went ahead midway through the first half through a rocket of a shot from Mason Greenwood after a good pass from Bruno Fernandes.

Leicester however levelled matters through Youri Tielemans who made the most of a mistake from Manchester United while trying to play the ball from the back.

The home side went a goal up 12 minutes form time through Soyuncu who fired home a loose ball from a corner. 

The best was saved for last as Manchester United equalized through Marcus Rashford who was returning from injury in the 82nd but James Vardy put the 2016 league Champions again just a minute later.

With United pushing forward for an equalizer Leicester broke on the counter and Paston Daka made sure of the points with the fourth goal in added time. 

The loss means Manchester United are no longer in the top four places as they lie in 5th with 14 points while Leicester City climb to 11th on the table with 8 points.
