After Mason Greenwood and Youri Tielemans had earlier traded brilliant first-half goals, Caglar Soyuncu put Leicester in front before substitute Marcus Rashford hit back on his return from shoulder surgery.

But Jamie Vardy swiftly restored the hosts’ advantage before Patson Daka netted in stoppage time to seal a remarkable victory that leaves the under-fire Solskjaer subject to more scrutiny.

Before match

Harry Maguire is deemed fit enough to start for Manchester United at former club Leicester this afternoon.

Maguire has been out with a calf injury and only returned to full training on the grass late in the week, but he’s in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s starting XI at the King Power Stadium.

The England defender partners Victor Lindelof, with Raphael Varane set to be out for a few weeks with the groin injury he suffered while playing for France over the international break.

Marcus Rashford is fit again after recovering from shoulder surgery and is on the bench.
