Reactions and statements after Manchester United’s victory over Leicester City

But Manchester United were indebted to David De Gea, who made a string of stunning early saves to deny Leicester, on his way to equaling Peter Schmeichel’s clean sheet record for United

Ten Hag said after today’s match: “Leicester is a great team, they played very well and made it really difficult for us. It was like that from our side, we didn’t follow the rules and principles of the game from our way of playing and then you get punished. We were lucky and only because of David de Gea didn’t We concede any goal, great saves, we were not disciplined and it’s not right

He continued: We entered the first half and said that. We were leading 1-0, and we also knew how to beat them because there is a lot of space in the middle of the field and behind their defensive line. It was a good goal, again a great pass from Bruno [Fernandez], a great goal from Rashi Marcus Rashford and then we go 1-0 up. The second half was all about us and Bruno Fernandes played a great game
