LONDON: With a 2-2 draw at the King Power Stadium on Saturday, Leicester City returned twice to snap Manchester United’s away winning run in the Premier League.
After Bruno Fernandes appeared to have secured another victory on the road for United, a Jamie Vardy shot which deflected off United defender Axel Tuanzebe, five minutes from the end, secured a point for Brendan Rodgers’ side.
On the hand of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who won their last 10 Premier League away matches, they sit third on 27 points, a point behind second-placed Leicester.
Marcus Rashford missed a wide-open header, but after being slid in by Fernandes, he put United ahead in the 23rd minute with a calm goal, before Harvey Barnes equalised eight minutes later with a fine shot from the box’s edge.
But in the 79th minute, the powerful Fernandes regained United’s lead, drilling into the bottom corner after being found by substitute Edinson Cavani inside the area.
Again, however, the lead was short-lived as Vardy fired for the first time on the half-turn from Ayoze Perez’s low cross, went in off Tuanzebe and gained the Foxes a point.
