Their delight, however, was short-lived, as Fred equalised three minutes later to bring United back into the game.

The points are shared after the 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.

United misses out on an opportunity to jump Tottenham into fifth place, despite the fact that they are now level on points.

For their next match, they go to Everton. Leicester climbs up to ninth place with that point, but their focus now shifts to Thursday’s Europa Conference League quarter-final against PSV Eindhoven.
