Manchester United’s David de Gea disappointed with draw against Leicester City

by Tanveer Arayan

David de Gea was in defiant mood following Manchester United’s 1-1 draw against Leicester City on Saturday.

Leicester took the lead through Jamie Vardy, who has now scored in 11 consecutive Premier League games, before Bastian Schweinsteiger’s header levelled things up just before half time.

Man United had chances to win the game but had to settle for a point, meaning they missed the change to go top of the league table. De Gea was disappointed but insisted United “remain in the fight”:

If United are going to win the title, then they can ill afford to draw games like the one against Leicester.

Louis van Gaal’s side suffered from a lack of cutting edge against the Foxes, as they have for the majority of the campaign, and they will need to be much better in the coming weeks.

Van Gaal tried a 3-5-2 formation against Leicester but it did little to help the team’s fortunes. It seems as if the January transfer window will be a crucial one for United as they search for silverware this term.
