Leicester City 0 – Manchester United 1
Manchester United claimed maximum points at the King Power Stadium on Sunday.
Leicester were punished for slack defending in the critical moment in the game.
Ricardo Pereira gave the ball to Paul Pogba in the 9th minute.
Pogba duly played a ball over the top to Marcus Rashford who slammed home what proved to be the winner.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed Marcus Rashford’s injury
Rashford is enjoying an impressive season for United. The forward has nine goals and seven assists in the Premier League.
As a result, Rashford has usurped Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez as Man United’s number one striker.
Following the Leicester match, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer also revealed that Rashford was playing with a knock. The interim United boss confirmed:
He’s played a lot of games and he got a dead leg earlier on but he struggled through it so well done.
Lukaku replaced Rashford with 12 minutes remaining against the Foxes.
OGS confirms Marcus Rashford was carrying a slight knock when he scored the opening goal at the King Power. “He got a dead leg early on but played through it. And fantastic pass by Paul, a great finish, he could have had one earlier as well.” #MUFC pic.twitter.com/7odRIPO0CP

Will Marcus Rashford be out of action for Man United?
That seems unlikely.
The Red Devils are back in action next weekend when they travel to relegation threatened Fulham.
With several days rest ahead of him, Rashford should be fit for the match against the Cottagers.
