Match report: Leicester City 0-2 Man Utd, 26 July 2020


The goal was followed by the second drinks break of the afternoon and substitute Harvey Barnes created the first chance after the resumption when his scruffy shot inside the box was held by De Gea.

The Foxes were then presented with a great opportunity 10 minutes from the end, but Morgan’s air-shot failed to test the United keeper – nor did Demarai Gray’s effort which deflected off Harry Maguire.

Leicester continued to push but United held firm and snuffed out any opposition chances. In stoppage time, Evans was sent off in injury-time lunging tackle on Scott McTominay, getting a straight red card from referee Atkinson.

Right at the death, Lingard added a second when he capitalised on a mistake by Schmeichel, dispossessing the Dane and finishing with his left foot into an empty net for his first Premier League goal of the season to end things on a real high.
