Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Names Two Players That Impressed Against Leicester City


Manchester United beat Leicester City 1-0 on Saturday at Old Trafford thanks to a Marcus Rashford first-half penalty.

Manchester United also kept our second clean sheet of the season in the win over Leicester and our second in the last 19 games.

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer praised centre-backs Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof for the way they read the game against Leicester.

“I thought they did excellently today,” Solskjaer said of Maguire and Lindelof. “They read the game well.

“I’ve got loads of admiration for Vardy, I think he’s my type of centre forward, runs in in behind, harasses and you’ve got to be spot on with the decision-making, when to stay up, when to drop off, and both of them proved their worth today. There were a couple of races and Harry did well.

“I don’t think [the abuse from Leicester fans] bothers [Maguire] whatsoever. You’ve got to be that way and when you play, when you coach, when you manage, we don’t get carried away when we win a game that we maybe didn’t deserve to win, but we don’t get in the dumps when we don’t win.

“Because the performances have been miles better than this, and today we just have to accept three points and wake up tomorrow with a smile, have a day off, relax a bit and look forward to next week.”
