95'
FT: Man U 1-0 Leicester! Seconds after the throw-in, the whistle goes!! Man Utd scored an early penalty and then put in a brilliant defensive display. De Gea had to make two great saves in the first half, but was rather untroubled in the second. In fact, Rashford struck the woodwork late on. Thanks for your company and see you again soon!
