Ronaldo Frustrated Again As Man Utd Suffer Big Loss

The pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continues to grow after Manchester United suffered a 4-2 loss at the hands of Leicester City on Saturday evening.

Premier League

Result: Leicester City 4-2 Manchester United

Date: 16 October 2021

Venue: King Power Stadium

With Raphael Varane set to miss the next few weeks, Harry Maguire returned from injury to partner Victor Lindelof on the bench while Ronaldo was also recalled to the starting line-up.

It was all Leicester in the early stages of the first half but Brendan Rodgers' men struggled with the final pass as United looked shaky early on.

However, the visitors broke the deadlock on 18 minutes when Mason Greenwood picked up the ball 25 yards out and sent a sublime strike into the top corner.

The game opened up thereafter as Pereira went close for the Foxes on 26 minutes before Kasper Schmeichel was on hand to deny Ronaldo at the other end.

The hosts got their reward on 30 minutes when Kelechi Iheanacho dispossessed Maguire and played in Youri Tielemans, who sent a first-time effort into the far corner.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer eventually looked to his bench for the final 25 minutes as Marcus Rashford made his first appearance of the season in place of Sancho.

Leicester nearly completed the turnaround with 15 minutes left on the clock but David de Gea produced a superb finger-tip save to push Tielemans' onto the post.

The Foxes got their rewarded minutes later when a scramble in the box ended with Caglar Soyonco knocking the ball into an empty net, with VAR approving the goal.

That joy was short-lived as Rashford got United back on level terms after latching onto Lindelof's pass before firing into the roof of the net.

However, Jamie Vardy was the hero a couple minutes with a first-time volley from 12-yards out as the Foxes caught United napping at the back.

Second-half substitute Patson Daka rounded off the scoring in stoppage time with a tap in at the far post for his first goal for the club since arriving in the last transfer window.
