Leicester 2 – Juan Mata 2
Leicester scored a dramatic late goal against Man United on Saturday night.
Harry Maguire popped up in the 94th minute to find the back of the net.
The Foxes took the lead against the Red Devils with a brilliant counter attacking goal.
Jamie Vardy scored his 50th Premier League goal as the Foxes went from one end of the pitch to the other in 13 seconds.
Juan Mata made the headlines at the King Power Stadium.
The Spanish international levelled for United in the first half from a Jesse Lingard assist.
In the second half Mata curled a stunning free-kick into the top corner.

Sympathy for Romelu Lukaku
Once again Romelu Lukaku failed to find the target for United.
Lukaku had recently rediscovered his scoring form scoring in successive games against Bournemouth and West Brom.
The Belgian has 10 Premier League goals for Jose Mourinho’s men this season.
But many believe that Lukaku doesn’t get the service he deserves in the United XI.
In two separate incidents in the second half against Leicester, Lukaku set up team mates for fantastic goal scoring chances.
However Anthony Martial missed a virtual open goal in the first instance.
Jesse Lingard hit the woodwork with his shot in the second chance.
That lead to many Man United fans offering sympathy for Lukaku.

Lukaku has played two passes, one to Martial and the latest to Lingard, that he’ll wish he had received. Lovely weight on both.

We should be leading comfortably by now. Both bad miss by Lingard and Martial. Lukaku very unlucky in both occasion. Should have 2 assist to his name by now

Martial and Lingard ruined 2 amazing assists for Lukaku. Like seriously they couldn't have asked for better passes. Feel for him.

Lukaku with two great balls for Martial and Lingard but both couldn’t finish it! Say what you want, but Lukaku is essential to our game!

Romelu Lukaku should have had two assists already against Leicester. Anthony Martial first and now Lingard. #MUFC

Lukaku actually set up two beautiful chances— one for Martial earlier and now for Lingard and both absolutely messed up the finishing ffs. 😕
