Manchester United travelled to Leicester on Sunday as they looked to move a step close to the top four.

United began the weekend in 6th place, three points off 4th place Chelsea.

Chelsea won 5-0 on Saturday vs Huddersfield meaning Man United needed to win to keep in contention for a Champions League Spot.

As for Claude Puel’s Leicester, they had won one of their last four and have been in poor form.

Although, the Foxes did hold Liverpool to a 1-1 draw in their last match. They have also beaten Man City this season.

Despite Leicester’s resilience against the bigger clubs, Marcus Rashford would give United a 1-0 lead early in the first half.

The game remained 1-0 and United climbed above Arsenal in the league.
