Man Utd 1-0 Leicester: Marcus Rashford penalty gives United much-needed victory
Report as Manchester United move up to fourth with second win of the season
Marcus Rashford’s early penalty gave Manchester United a much-needed 1-0 victory over Leicester City at Old Trafford on Saturday.
Having missed two penalties in their first four games, United took the lead through Rashford’s spot kick (8) after Caglar Soyuncu had brought the England man down.
Leicester had their chances before and after the goal; James Maddison forced a fine save from David de Gea and also lashed a free-kick inches wide later in the game, but United held firm and could have even doubled their lead as Rashford hit the upright with a fine free-kick.
The result means Leicester lose their unbeaten record, while United overtake the Foxes into the top four after registering just their second win of the campaign.
