United's next game sees them begin their Europa League campaign with a match against Astana at home while Leicester will host Tottenham at the King Power Stadium.
Full Time!
It ends Manchester United 1-0 Leicester City.

Rashford's early penalty turned out to be the difference after he dispatched clinically to condemn Leicester to their first defeat of the season while United win for the first time since the opening day of the season.

94' United refuse to give the ball back and a little scuffle breaks out.

Chilwell gets booked in the process and McTominay who refused to give the ball back got nothing...

93' Rashford looked clean through but Tielemans recovered well and defended successfully
92' Ndidi catches the ball with his left foot and fires just wide of the post.

Agonisingly close for the visitors.

90' Leicester wins a corner and Schmeichel runs up the field for it.

The corner is played shorted and the chance is wasted.

Schmeichel furious with the set piece

Four minutes of added time have been allocated...
89' United make a defensive change as James makes way for Tuanzebe.

Looking to see out the remainder of the game

83' James yellow carded for a challenge on Maddison that stops a Foxes attack
82' Rashford hits the bar with a free kick from around 30 yards out and the ball bounces out for a goal kick
10 minutes of the game to go and Leicester's unbeaten run in the Premier League is at risk...
78' Leicester's long balls over the top have proved to be awkward for the United defence all game.

Nothing has come from them as of yet however.....

15 minutes of the match to go....

The hosts still lead 1-0

74' McTominay has fouled Maddison on a number of occasions throughout the game but the first time Maddison returns the favour...

He's booked.

72' United starting to play their way back into the game 
72' James skies his shot from the edge of the box
69' De Gea tries to claim that Vardy caught him late after passing the ball but the English striker didn't touch the Spaniard.

66' Demarai Gray replaced by Harvey Barnes for the Foxes second change of the match
66' Fred replaces Matic for the hosts

Half Time!
The first half ends Man U 1-0 Leicester

The referee blows for half time as Maddison bangs his foot on the ground in pain.

Rashford's spot kick is the difference in the match so far after Soyuncu brought the young England forward down in the box.

Chilwell's half volley arguably represents Leicester's best chance to get level if it wasn't for a good De Gea save.

Improvements needed for the Foxes in the second half as top 6 rivals United have the advantage

47' Choudhury sees a shot on his unfavourved left foot comfortably saved by De Gea
Two minutes added time of the first half.
45' A Man U counter attack ends with a dissapointing James cross that sails over Schmeichel's bar
43' Soyuncu stays down after the corner and De Gea kicks the ball out of play so the Turkish international can receive treatment.

He's ok and play continues

42' Maddison clips the ball into the box towards Gray but Young intercepts the pass with his head and concedes a corner
40' A good string of passes put together by Leicester but Gray's delivery in towards Vardy was misplaced and went out for a goal kick.

32' Leicester growing into the game and win a third corner in quick succession

22' Gray chops back in the box and goes down but the referee disinterested.
19' Evans glances a Young delivery from a set piece to concede a corner.

Another three points for Rodgers and his side today?
Thoughts for the match
With the Premier League returning from the international break, both teams would like to get off to a good restart.

Manchester United have not won a league game since their opening day victory over Chelsea and have dropped points against Crystal Palace, Wolves and Sounthampton respectively.

They face a Leicester side in good form as the Foxes are yet to lose a game this season, drawing to Wolves and Chelsea and beating Sheffield United and Bournemouth.

This game could prove to be pivotal in the race for 6th and it could be a great chance for Leicester to make a statement in terms of their ambitions of the season.

"This is a chance for us to go and demonstrate our qualities on a fantastic stage."

Solskjaer on Leicester....
 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has heaped praise on his opposition in his pre-match press conference, stating: "Leicester is always a tough game. There's a team wanting to push into the top four.

"They've got good players and a very good manager, a proven top manager. Brendan's teams always play good football and we know we've got to play well to deserve the three points."
