The foxes led by the in-form Nigerian striker Kelechi Iheanacho deservedly put the Red Devils out of the FA Cup at the quarter final stage yesterday. Defensive mistakes cost United. Particularly the Fred error. Why play out from the back when it is really not on? Matic had a poor game in defensive midfield, was at fault for the goal failing to get close to Tielemans during his burst from midfield. The whole United team looked lethargic except Greenwood who gave a good account of himself.For Leicester, their defense marshaled by former United player Evans and Fofana was virtually impenetrable save of course for the goal by Greenwood. Donny Van De Beek did great work setting up the goal but in other areas of the game he was poor. He is playing the safe pass far too often needs to take a few more risks if he is to be considered at par with Bruno. Check out an interesting piece of statistics below.
Kelechi is not a regular in the Nigerian national side yet he has more goals in less minutes played than Anthony Martial. No need to tell Ole where he needs to invest in next.
