Manchester United hosted Leicester City at the Old Trafford Stadium in Manchester as part of the 31st round of the English Premier League. The teams drew 1:1.
The score was opened in the second half. In the 63rd minute, the Foxes striker Kelechi Iheanacho scored. James Maddison assisted him. Three minutes later, the midfielder of “MU” Fred scored the return goal.
The meeting was served by a team of referees headed by Andre Marriner. He was assisted by assistants Darren Cann and Ian Hassin. The reserve referee is Martin Atkinson.
After 30 rounds played, Manchester United is in 6th place in the English Championship standings, scoring 51 points. Leicester is in 9th place in the table with 37 points.
Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville criticized the game of the Red Devils.
“Will MU get into the Champions League zone at the end of this season? I think not. The match against Leicester was horrible. I thought that a break for the national team matches could play Manchester United in a plus, give them a break to come back with new strength and play the last nine matches with a bang. But it will be a long and difficult two months for the team and its fans if the “MU” will play like against Leicester.
It was hard to watch Manchester United play. I’m not angry at them, and I don’t think the fans left the stadium in anger. The stage of the wrath of the fans of “MU” has already been passed. Now they’re just bored. I sincerely believe that the team’s players care about this, but no one directs them on the path of correcting the situation. In the club structure, the problem comes from above,” the Daily Mail quotes Neville as saying.
