Leicester City splits the points with Manchester United_Femi Ehiabhi

The points were shared at the King Power Stadium, where the Boxing Day schedule got off to a very entertaining start.

“I thought it was a really good game,” the Leicester manager tells BT Sport. “Two attacking teams … I thought our counter-pressing was really good. I thought we were very impressive in the first half. Second half we had to defend a little it more. We had lots of good moments when we were playing through … maybe lacked our final pass.

“We went 2-1 behind and it’s perhaps the thing we’ve been talking about – we had our enthusiasm and our confidence and it really showed the mentality of our team.

“We had loads of big chances and we could have finished it off, but Leicester are a dangerous side,” says the Man United manager, in his chat with Des. “Marcus’s first chance was a glorious one but it was just one of those things. Both their goals should have been closed down quicker – you always look at goals conceded and think you should have done better. We’ve got a game in three days … an extra recovery day which we’ll use wisely.”
