LEI VS MNU: A Flashback To Man Utd's Last EPL Defeat At The King Power Stadium Back in 2014

Shortly after the International break, the Red contingent of Manchester will travel to the King Power Stadium where Leicester City awaits them in a crunch Premier league clash. The match which is set to kick-off this Saturday at 15:00 West Africa Standard time will mark the 31st meeting between these two sides in the top flight since 1992.

Needful to say that since the Foxes got promoted back to the Premier league in 2014, they have only beaten the Red Devils once at the King Power Stadium. However, ahead of their meeting this weekend, take a look at Leicester City's last top flight win over United in their own turf.

Leicester City fought back from 3-1 down to secure a stunning victory over a defensively frail Manchester United side who were then under the management of Louis Van Gaal. The Red Devils were on course for another three points after a Robin Van Persie's header coupled with a lovely chip from Angel Di Maria had given them a 2-0 lead 16 minutes into the game, but the deficit was reduced by the home side as the match ended 2-1 at half-time.

12 minutes into the second half, Ander Herrera extended United's lead with a lovely back heel goal, but Leicester City hit back through two penalties and two other open play goals against a United side that finished with 10 men on the pitch.

It was a memorable victory for the Foxes, their first and only home win over United in the Premier league till date. Since then, the Red Devils have recorded 4 wins and 2 draws at the King Power Stadium and will be hoping to keep that decent record this weekend.

Can Leicester City secure only their second Premier league home win over Manchester United or will it be the away side who comes out top?
