Leicester 0 Man United 1
Leicester hosted Manchester United on Sunday as they looked to get back to winning ways.
Prior to the United clash, Leicester had failed to win in their last three league games.
The Foxes had also recently been knocked out of the FA Cup by Newport County.
So, a good showing vs United was very much needed.
However, Man United came into Sunday’s match on a nine-game unbeaten streak under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
That streak would continue vs Leicester as Marcus Rashford scored the only goal of the game.
After losing to Man United, Claude Puel believes his side should have got a draw out of the game.

Chilwell asks for patience
The loss to Manchester United also meant Leicester have won just four home games this campaign.
Despite this, Leicester full-back Ben Chilwell has urged fans to be patient with the team and back the manager:
“Of course, him [Puel], us, everyone at the training ground are all trying our best. It would be nice if they were patient with us but you can understand they expect results with the quality we’ve got.
“The fans expect results which is understandable but it’s a young team which is learning. We’re not scrapping in a relegation battle.”As quoted by the Independent.
Puel’s job was rumoured to be under threat back in December and with losses continuing to mount, he may not last the season.
Leicester’s next game sees them travel to Tottenham on Sunday.
