    • 45'
      It's all United at the moment as they continue to put Leicester under plenty of pressure.

The young Englishman then chips a deft cross i
    • 90'
      United try to push forward on one last attack as they fling ball after ball into the Leicester penalty area, but no matter what they do they just can't seem to turn their possession into a chance on goal.

      Fantastic goalkeeping by Schmeichel! Valencia charges down the right flank before sending a lovely through-ball into the path of Martial, but it's just about cut out by Huth before it can find the Frenchman.

    • 90'
      It's all United at the moment as they continually push forward in search of what would surely be the winner, but they just can't seem to find a way through the blue shirts camped in front of them. Leicester have every single player camped behind the ball and are doing incredibly well to keep the hos

      Despite their best efforts, Leicester's wait for the Premier League title goes on after being held to what was, under the circumstances, a good point. After going behind so early it looked as if they may be on course for a rare defeat, but they fought back valiantly and caused plenty of problems for

      What a first half that was! Both sides are really going for it and impressing whenever they push forward, so it's no wonder that the tie is still on a knife-edge as we head into the half-time break. United got the perfect start when Martial latched on to a Valencia cross before slotting the ball und

      The story of Leicester’s rise from the threat of relegation to being just one win away from lifting the Premier League title is a modern-day miracle, and it is one that has put Claudio Ranieri on the cusp of making history. The Italian has overseen a fantastic turnaround since taking over from Nigel

      United embark on a patient attacking move as they move the ball around well inside the Leicester half of the pitch.

      Leicester aren't able to clear the danger away fully and, as a result, United come back at them once again.

      Lingard weaves his way towards the edge of the Leicester penalty area after linking up well with Rooney in the middle of the pitch. The youngster then pokes a pass over to Rashford, who takes a quick touch before unleashing a thumping low strike. It's well hit but Huth is there to throw his body in
    • 7'
      Leicester are finally able to spend some time on the ball after weathering an early storm from United, and Ulloa charges forward before being hauled to the ground by Fellaini deep inside the visitors' half of the pitch.

    • 58'
      The referee's yellow card is out once again, and this time it's Drinkwater who's the culprit, as he cynically pulls back Rashford as the youngster tries to sprint down the left wing and leaves the man in charge with no choice but to reach for his pocket.
    • 60'
      Chance for Rooney! Kante loses the ball on the edge of the Leicester penalty area, allowing United to pick up possession in a dangerous position before Valencia whips a low cross into the box.
