Two things Ole Gunnar Solskjaer got right as Man Utd lose against Leicester

Ronaldo returns

The 36-year-old return to the starting XI came as no surprise after Solskjaer was chastised for leaving him on the bench in Manchester United's last match against Everton.

During the international break, the Portuguese were in blistering form for Portugal, scoring four goals in two games.

Cristiano had a quiet first half, save for one golden chance from close range, but he must be in the team if United are to turn their troubled form around and mount a title challenge.

If it wasn't obvious to the Norwegian coach before the Everton game, it will be now, even if he did blank against the Foxes.

Sticking with Greenwood

Competition for a spot in Ole Gunnar front three is fierce, but Mason is quickly emerging as United's main man this season, alongside Cristiano.

The youngster's thunderous long-range strike gave United the lead at Leicester, rekindling his fine early-season form.

The British striker hadn't scored since the smash-and-grab win over Wolverhampton at the end of August, after scoring three goals in three premier league games prior to Ronaldo's return.

Soyuncu's goal in the 78th minute sparked an immediate response from Manchester United, as Rashford equalized. Patson Daka added a fourth goal for Leicester in the dying seconds of the game, before Vardy scored a late goal for the Leicester

The Red Devils lost ground at the top of the Premier League after falling to a 4-2 defeat against Leicester City, adding to the pressure on United's under-fire coach Solskjaer.
