Manchester United continued their unbeaten run under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the King Power Stadium, as the visitors earned a hard-fought 1-0 win to seal all three points.

Here’s how the Red Devils fared in the Premier League clash:

DAVID DE GEA: 8
Made two crucial saves in the second half, with the one against Rachid Ghezzal’s free-kick particularly impressive. A stable custodian throughout.

ASHLEY YOUNG: 5
Frustrating. Lost possession several times in the final third.

ERIC BAILLY: 7
Endured a few nervy moments. Put his body on the line numerous times to help maintain the clean sheet.

VICTOR LINDELOF: 7
Smart whilst in possession. Successfully dealt with the Jamie Vardy threat.

LUKE SHAW: 6.5
Almost earned an early assist, only for his sublime cross to be headed over the crossbar by Marcus Rashford. A decent performance, which involved a crucial block on James Maddison.

NEMANJA MATIC: 6
Positioned himself well to break up Leicester’s play. Booked for a tactical foul.

ANDER HERRERA: 6.5
Proved his importance through his display against the Foxes. Connected defence to attack well.

PAUL POGBA: 7
Produced an assist similar to the one he bagged against Spurs – a deliciously perfect over-the-top pass to Rashford. Made a marauding run late in the game, but other than that, was restrained by the opponents.

JESSE LINGARD: 5
The Englishman’s overall shift looked extremely lethargic. A surprising decision by Solskjaer to not sub him off much earlier in the second half.

ALEXIS SANCHEZ: 3
Barely a threat, and barely a realistic competition for Anthony Martial for the starting spot.

MARCUS RASHFORD: 7
Missed an easy headed chance early in the game, but made up for it with a clinical finish.
