The Red Devils have lost once, drawn twice since then and will now be back in action again this weekend, competing against a rejuvenated Leicester side who are yet to lose a game.

All three players sustained knocks in the 2-1 EFL Cup victory at Chelsea on Wednesday (October 30), a result that stretched United's winning run away from home to three games in all competitions.

The England striker finished clinically from Paul Pogba's pass to earn United an eighth win in nine league games under caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Their winning run had been halted by Burnley on Tuesday, when the Red Devils fought back from 2-0 down to claim a dramatic 2-2 draw, but the three points rarely looked in much doubt after Rashford's 10th top-flight goal of the season. 1 987826 Rashford somehow headed over from barely two yards out within the first five minutes, but he soon made amends, controlling Pogba's lofted pass expertly and drilling beyond Kasper Schmeichel. United eased off after taking the lead and invited some Leicester pressure, although a wayward header from Jonny Evans and a dipping Pereira strike were the best openings they could muster before the break. David de Gea was given a tougher test on the hour mark, reacting well to stop Jamie Vardy's half-volley from crossing the line after he spilled the initial attempt, and Solskjaer promptly introduced … [Read more...] about Leicester City 0 Manchester United 1: Rashford drags Solskjaer’s men back to winning ways
