Manchester United have finally made a progress on the Premier League table, as they moved on the 5th place after today’s win at Leicester.
It was Marcus Rashford who scored the one and only goal on King Power Stadium in the ninth minute of the game. Rashford continues his fine form, scoring for 4th time in 2019, as he is on the nominations list for the Player of the Month January award.
United had a few chances to get a two-goal lead in the first half, but they were all unsuccessful. The second half of the match was mostly quite, with United dominating Leicester’s midfield and controlling the game.
The foxes had the biggest chance through Ghezzal’s free kick, but De Gea made another stunning save, helping his team hold on the lead, and later win the three points. This was Solskjaer’s 7th win in 8 Premier League games as Manchester United manager, equaling Mourinho’s record for this season. (in 17 games)
In the other Premier League game today Manchester City beat Arsenal 3-1, thanks to Sergio Aguero hat-trick.
Aguero scored the opener in the first minute of the game and Koscielny leveled the score 10 minutes later. Both teams played a great first half, as there were chances at each side, but Sergio Aguero made sure City went with a lead on the break, finding the net again, in the 44th minute.
It was all City in the following 45 minutes, as Aguero completed his hat-trick in the 61th minute scoring a controversial goal with his arm. Arsenal showed a poor performance and did not even shoot towards the opponent’s goal in the whole second half.
