Brutal Anthony Martial: Leicester’s bad injury loss

Leicester vs Man United

The late game in the Premier League on Saturday night saw Leicester host Man United.

The Foxes took the lead in the first half with a brilliant counter attacking goal finished by Jamie Vardy.

But Man United weren’t behind for long. Jesse Lingard continued his superb form setting up Juan Mata for the equaliser.

Anthony Martial v Danny Simpson

In the second half Leicester lost their ever-present right-back Danny Simpson.

Simpon’s age was exposed in a foot race with Anthony Martial down the Leicester right hand side.

Martial had far too much pace for the Foxes full-back, and Simpson tweaked his hamstring trying to keep up with the French flyer.

As soon as Simpson pulled up it was obvious he had a problem.

But incredibly the defender had to stay on the field for several more minutes as Leicester sub Daniel Amartey wasn’t ready to come on.

Leicester fans will be hoping Simpson didn’t make his injury even worse by staying on the pitch those extra few minutes.

Watford vs Leicester

Next up for Claude Puel is an away trip to Watford on Boxing Day.

Watford are sliding down the table following Saturday’s 1-0 defeat away at Brighton.

Pascal Gross was the hero for the Seagulls with the only goal of the game against the Hornets.

Watford have lost their last four matches in a row, and five of their last six.
