Manchester United got the half underway as they attack from left to right.
The first action of the half came in the 4th minute following a stunning pass from Pogba to find Valencia on the right. His cross is headed out to Blind who tried for the screamer, it flew to row Z.
The 7th minute saw Mata take his first corner of the game which was cleared by Zieler with a punch that fell to Ibrahimovic who tried to shoot on the turn but it flew way off of the mark.
A very strong start from United who have had the lions share of possession but when has that ever bothered Leicester?
Leicester City’s first real chance came in the 10th minute as Slimani saw himself with space in the box however Albrighton’s left footed cross was poor and De Gea collected the ball easily.
The foxes really began to come into the game as in the 16th minute their corner was poorly cleared and after a succession of shots, was finally kicked out by United to the relief of the home crowd.
Calamity for Leicester in the 22nd minute, despite being the better team, Chris Smalling found the back of the net following a Manchester United corner. A great header from the United captain.
Manchester United 1 – 0 Leicester City (Smalling, 22)
The 26th minute saw Rashford go for the classic bicycle kick, his confidence is sky high at the moment, as was his attempt.
Just a minute later Ibrahimovic also went for an absolute stunner after a brilliantly dinked pass from Pogba. he chose to go for the volley which went way over the bar.
Pogba was really coming into the game at this point as he lined up a shot from 30 yards.
Zieler got there just in time as he put the ball out for a corner.
United scored their second in the 37th minute as Juan Mata beats Zieler, shooting the ball into the far corner. A terrible response from City since they conceded their first goal.
Manchester United 2 – 0 Leicester City (Mata, 37)
Could things get any worse for the foxes at this point? Of course they could.
Just 3 minutes later, Mata found himself unmarked at the near post following a corner. With time on the ball he slid it into young Marcus Rashford who just can’t stop scoring.
Manchester United 3 – 0 Leicester City (Rashford, 40)
I think every United fan will be delighted with the scoreline so far, only man who might not be however is Wayne Rooney as it’s clear that this midfield is incredible without him holding them back.
The sheer amount of chances being created was even clearer in the 42nd minute as Pogba heads the ball in for United’s 4th of the first half and his first since returning to Old Trafford.
Manchester United 4 – 0 Leicester City (Pogba, 42)
As Leicester City enter the tunnel for half time, they trail 4 goals to nil. Oh to be a fly in the wall of that dressing room!
