  • End of 2nd Half
90+1' 

United are happy to keep attacking, but Leicester sit back and prevent another goal going in, at least. That's full time now. United were fortunate to keep 10 men on the pitch, but once they'd managed that, Leicester just fell apart after the first goal went in. United still are in the hunt for the Champions League, but the likeliest result from this match is that Leicester lose their place in the Premier League.

90' 

There's just one minute added.

89' 

I absolutely adore take-ons.

88' 

Vardy abuses the ref after a decision goes against him, but he doesn't receive a yellow card for it. De Gea is booked for wasting time, which is an odd one.

87' 

Gray takes a corner which is cleared back to the halfway line and then back to Schmeichel.

86' 

Valencia wins the ball, but his high studs go into Gray's chest and he's lucky to avoid a booking. Mike Dean would have sent him, and Patrice Evra, off six times for that.

84' 

Corner on the left for Leicester, Fellaini clears but Leicester have it back.

Fellaini on for Mata.

76' 

Marouane Fellaini will be on shortly. For now, United will just keep the ball for a few minutes longer.

75' 

United break, Ibrahimovic dances into the box and overplays it, so the move breaks down.

74' 

Vardy forces a corner as he drives a long ball, with Bailly across to over. A corner on the left for Leicester, and Huth heads it down and out, Smalling getting a touch too, conceding another corner. Gray takes a gain, Morgan heads it down to nobody.

73' 

A Mahrez cross goes out of play from the right.

70' 

More United possession, more United chanting. There's really not much happening, but United are just trying to conserve energy.

68' 

Gray tries to dart into the box but he's tackled, winning a corner. United might make some more chances as all of their midfielders are on yellows. They clear the corner, but can't release Rashford.

66' 

Another poor effort from Drinkwater, who flashes a shot wild.

65' 

United are keeping the ball easily, Leicester are letting them do it, and as a result not much is happening anywhere on the pitch.

62' 

Juan Mata gets in between two defenders to run onto a ball aimed initially for Rashford, and he toes an awful shot at Schmeichel when he could have - or should have - just nudged it past him.

61' 

Drinkwater dribbles a shot from distance wide.

60' 

Leicester are growing into the match now, but that's pretty much a waste of time given the scoreline. Or is it? Yes.

57' 

Mahrez curls his shot through the wall and strikes the side netting. It was really close to creeping in, and De Gea has a cob on.

Rashford is in behind on the left and he rifles a shot at the near post for Schmeichel to turn behind. Nothing from the corner.

United press Leicester back to their 'keeper, but expect United to try to keep things tight from now. This is a Mourinho team.

Ndidi has a shot from the edge of the box that De Gea stops with relative ease.

Rashford wins a corner on the left wing. He fires it back to Mhkitaryan, and it all goes to dog dirt. United then come back as Mata slams a low shot into some legs. Valencia's cross from the right is cleared by Simpson, and then Ndidi puts his foot through it to properly clear.

Fuchs is booked for a late tackle in on Mata.

39' 

Rashford passes back to Ibrhaimovic, who dribbles into the box, is tackled, and Pogba feeds the ball back to Rashford. His cross to the back post is met by Mhkitaryan, who glances a header well wide.

36' 

From the corner, Smalling's knockdown drifts wide as Pogba lunges towards it to try to turn it into the net. No luck.

35' 

The best chance for United so far. Ibrahimovic turns the defence, slides a pass left for Pogba, who rolls it into the past of Rashford, who leathers a low shot at goal that Schmeichel dives to push away.

34' 

United are sitting on the ball in Leicester's half, but they're struggling to open them up.

31' 

United have grown in the last 10 minutes, but Leicester seem back to their old selves in that they're threatening on the break.

29' 

United start to press down the left, but two high crosses into the box do nothing for anyone.

Simpson limps back onto the pitch, and Vardy is then caught by a late challenge by Mata. It's a wild challenge, and he keeps his studs *almost* down. He is lucky to be on still.

26' 

Simpson is down, perhaps because of the collision with Ibrahimovic, or maybe from stretching in the challenge. It doesn't look good.

25' 

Simpson catches Ibrahimovic in midfield as the striker receives a high ball, and a foul is called for United.

23'

United break from the corner when Bailly clears, and Mkhitaryan exchanges passes from left to right, and it ends with him pulling the ball back for Rashford in the box, who leans back and clips a volley over.

22' 

Herrera's terrible pass is taken by Vardy, who slips in Musa down the left and Bailly sticks a leg out to concede a corner on the left wing.

20' 

The corner is cleared by Bailly at the near post, and then United win a foul as Smalling is caught as he clears the ball.

19' 

Mahrez swings in the free kick, it's flicked on by Vardy to Morgan at the back post, but United get it behind for a corner on the left wing.

18' 

Mahrez drops deep and plays in Simpson, who moves the ball to Musa on the right wing, and Rojo trips him as he runs onto the ball.

16' 

Pobga is penalised for a foul on Fuchs in midfield. A chance for them to hoof the ball long.

15' 

Mahrez slides a pass into the box, but although it's into a dangerous area nobody can do anything with it.

14' 

Vardy, who was banned at the start of last season, comes together with Bailly and pushes him over. Bailly isn't interested in getting wound up.

12' 

A throw high up on the right for Leicester. United play their way out of trouble, out to the right hand side of the pitch.

11' 

No chances for either side so far beyond that early flurry, but the Leicester crowd are in fine voice.

8' 

United are camped in Leicester's half, but they're keeping it fairly deep - Pogba is on the halfway line.

6' 

Rojo is teed up for a shot from the corner of the box, but it's comfortably saved by Schmeichel.

United play the ball about in defence.

  • 1st Half
1' 

The match gets underway.

15:55 

With five minutes to go, it's worth remembering that United can't go above sixth today, but it would keep them within reach of the top five. There aren't many points between second and sixth right now.

15:50 

Erstwhile captain Chris Smalling speaks about the game today.

15:45 

Feel free to tweet your comments and predictions to me on @Eurosport_UK

15:30 

United continue to leave Luke Shaw out of the first eleven, meaning Marcos Rojo is going to feature at left-back. In the middle of defence, Chris Smalling and Eric Bailly are partnered, which is probably the least bad option for them. Wayne Rooney isn't on the bench ash he is ill.

15:25 

For Leicester City, they are still missing Daniel Amartey, in action yesterday at the Africa Cup of Nations, but they have Wifred Ndidi in action. In attack is Ahmed Musa, Shinji Okazaki and Jamie Vardy, but it's otherwise the standard Leicester first.
