LEI 4-2 MAN U: 3 Star Players Responsible For Manchester United's Defeat At The King Power Stadium

Following Manchester United's 4:2 defeat by Leicester City at the King Power Stadium earlier today, the red devil's who were leading by 1 goal to nothing in the 9th minute would have surpassed Brendan Rodgers's squad if not for three player's poor performance during the game.

Based on stats and individual performance in Manchester United's 8th EPL fixture against Leicester City, here are three players who are responsible for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's squad second defeat in the English Premier League this season.

1. Cristiano Ronaldo

Despite his incredible performance against Luxembourg during the FIFA world cup qualifiers group stage match, Cristiano Ronaldo was not at his best form in today's game as he missed different goalscoring opportunities which would have helped. Manchester United retains their position on the EPL table.

Cristiano Ronaldo failed to convert goals and as well restricted some key passes from going through during the game. He should total unprofessionalism as Leicester City's defenders were able to hold him down throughout the game.

2. Harry Maguire

The Manchester United captain who is currently recovering from his injury, was unable to build his defender's confidence as they made two bad errors which led to a goal against Manchester United.

As the captain of the team, Harry Maguire would have calmed his men down after Manchester United equalized 2-2 but instead his team went out to look for a winner in the late minutes and Leicester City's players launched a counter-attack which they Harry Maguire and his defenders were unable to stop.

3. Paul Pogba

Paul Pogba was one of the key players that helped France defeat Spain in the just concluded Nations League finals. The former Juventus man was not at his best form in today's game and he hindered some key passes which would have resulted in goals in today's game.

Today was the first time that Bruno Fernandes has ever lost a Premier League game away from home. United's unbeaten run since January 2020 ends at 29 games.
