LEI4-2MNU: Leicester City Striker Daka Set New EPL Reocrd

Manchester United were thrown off balance after an intensive 90 minutes of entertaining football at the King Power stadium. The Red Devils were restrained by the foxes from extending their unbeaten away record in the EPL. Brilliant strikes from Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford couldn't help the Red Devils secure a win in the game as the foxes unleashed mayhem on the Manchester United defence.

Late goals from English striker, Jamie Vardy and Zambian striker, Patson Daka sealed the victory for the foxes in dramatic fashion as Leicester City defeated Manchester United 4-2 in the Premier League. The Zambian came off the bench in the 77th minute for Nigerian striker, Kelechi Iheanacho who was problematic in the Manchester United defence. His 90+1 minute strike sealed the victory for the foxes, which was also his first goal in the EPL and the first Zambian to score in the league.

This game was thought to be an easy one for United who were already setting new strides in the league, however things turned out to be much tougher than they anticipated. Taking the lead in the first half of the game after a wonderful long range strike from Mason Greenwood wasn't enough to unsettle the foxes, they pressed on and got them back in the game after an error from Harry Maguire.

He was caught in possession by Kelechi Iheanacho, who then found Youri Tielemans just inside the box, the Belgian produced a fantastic clip that floated over De Gea.

The second half saw Leicester dominate possession and looked most likely to score before the end of the game, but United rode their luck to stay level, within the space of five minutes three goals were scored.

Leicester took the lead as Caglar Soyuncu was in the right place to tuck the ball into the back of the net from a corner before Rashford Brough Manchester United back into the game.

It was a joyous moment for the 23 year old Zambian who said it all felt like a dream, he has now set the ball rolling for other players from his home country to follow.
