Leicester City will be lucky to survive this drop this season as their Premier League campaign goes from bad to worse following the 1-0 defeat to Manchester United at the King Power Stadium on Thursday.

With the sale of some key players, Wesley Fofana inclusive, the Foxes matchday squad was stretched too thing in quality and quantity in most departments of the team.

Even Wilfred Ndidi was deployed as CB and despite the Nigerian’s best efforts on the night, Leicester City slumped to their fourth – successive – defeat of the season.

Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho combined in the 23rd minute to fire the visitors ahead in a half they controlled.

After the restart Leicester snatched the momentum and while they dominated for most parts of the second-half the Foxes didn’t make it count.

Even Kelechi Iheanacho’s introduction off the bench in the 76th minute only increased the urgency for Brendan Rodgers’ side, but the end result was lacking.

So, in contrast Manchester United climbed further up to the top half of the table, while Leicester are rooted bottom after five rounds of matches in the PL.

Up next for the Foxes is a trip to the Amex Stadium to face the in form Brighton side who sit in fourth place.
