Manchester United push Ahmed Musa''s Leicester City towards relegation

David De Gea Manchester United

Champions Leicester will be relegated from the Premier League if they don't improve quickly, goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel said after their 3-0 home defeat by Manchester United today.

A late Gray effort deflected wide for a thoroughly demoralised home team before a long-range Paul Pogba effort was clutched by Leicester and the game fizzled out to a chorus of boos from the home crowd. A repeat - 28 more points - over the season's last 14 would leave United on 73 points, a total that has been enough for a top-four finish in five of the last six seasons. In 24 games of the title defence, Leicester has lost 13 of them.

In the top professional football league in England, the 2000 number match of Leicester City was not bring good memories. Leicester City have at least two Champions League matches with a Round of 16 pairing against Sevilla.

"When we spoke about Memphis Depay we spoke about it being the only position where we have an over-booking of players". United's 3 goals in 7 minutes either side of the break saw Leicester off, leaving them a single point clear of the relegation zone. "We played well, we tried to win, obviously the opponent was hard but that's something we're used to", he told Sky Sports.

The Armenian netted the Red Devils' first goal at King Power Stadium before assisting in the visitors' third as Juan Mata capped off the victory.

And Mourinho - who praised his players for a clinical display in the first half - believes his side are very much in the race for the Champions League places.


Marcus Rashford hadn't scored in the league since netting against Leicester in September and the United striker, unmarked 10 yards from goal, squandered a good opportunity to end that barren run when he blazed over from Mkhitaryan's pinpoint cross.

It was a warning Leicester failed to heed and United took the lead in the 42nd minute when Mkhitaryan punished a mistake from Robert Huth. United were then able to attack with pace through the middle and Mkhitaryan's diligent work ethic (5 tackles completed) meant they were rarely going to be outnumbered centrally like they were in the initial periods of the first half. Then the next game I went to Mata and Mkhitaryan.

"I think in your chair, your perspective is always "if a player is not playing the manager is disturbing him", but this is not true".

"In this moment, we get stronger but the others, they get stronger and get stronger and get stronger and they are powerful to keep their strength".

"We are growing up this season in relation to last season".
