Juan Mata put in a man of the match performance but handful of missed chances came back to haunt Manchester United as they drew 2-2 with Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.
After being knocked out of the Carabao Cup by Bristol City, Manchester United suffered another disappointing result. The visitors conceded first but bounced back just before the break when Jesse Lingard cushioned into the path of Mata, who coolly tucked his low close-range strike beyond an outstretched Kasper Schmeichel. Both sides traded chances before Mata scored his second, a picturesque free kick from 19-yards out. The visitors dominated the second half and should of put the match to bed. Lingard hit the post after rounding Schmeichel, while Marcus Rashford squandered a chance following the dismissal of Daniel Amartey. In the end, United paid the ultimate price as Harry Maguire slid in at the back post to equalize in the 94th minute. The draw means Jose Mourinho's side now sit 13 points off league-leaguers Manchester City. Sat, Dec 23, 2017 05:54:00 PM
