    FT: Leicester 4-2 Man Utd!! All over in Leicester and the hosts deservedly win a crazy game. Greenwood put United ahead, but Tielemans levelled before HT. In the second half, it looked like it would end 1-1, but all hell broke loose in the back 15. Soyuncu made it 2-1 after good Leicester pressure, Rashford levelled shortly afterwards, but Vardy made it 3-2 just after the kick-off and sub Daka sealed the points in added time. Thanks for joining us and see you again soon!
