Manchester United scraped through a 1-0 win over Leicester City to leapfrog Arsenal to fifth place. The Red Devils scored an early against goal against their hosts and held on for the rest of the game despite multiple efforts from Leicester to find a breakthrough, especially in the second half.
Here are three things we learned from Manchester United’s 1-0 win over Leicester City.
3. Rashord-Pogba combo
Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba combined once again to score the first goal. Pogba’s pass was inspired, lofting the ball over the Leicester defence, Rashford, for his part, brought down the ball with ease and clinically finished it to give the lead for his team.
Rashford and Pogba have been in incredible form since manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over the reins and they are continuing to get the points necessary for the team.
2. Leicester concede early again
It was the fifth game in succession that Leicester conceded a goal in the first 15 minutes. With the hosts piling the pressure on Manchester United in the second half, they would have probably had more success if they had not conceded the early goal.
United had barely had a chance for themselves, and if they did not have the lead they would have probably been more open.
1. Unbeaten run
Solskjaer is yet to lose a game since taking over as the manager, and they have now moved up to fifth place. Their form has helped them reel in the points and are now only two behind fourth placed Chelsea. With Fulham next, they have a real chance of getting into the top four after a long time.
