Manchester United fans were delighted with Antonio Valencia‘s performance against Leicester City on Sunday evening.
The Ecuadorian has been remarkable under Jose Mourinho this season, kickstarting his career with the Portuguese bosses arrival in the summer and has cemented his place in the starting XI following his impressive displays.
He’s consistently performed this season at Old Trafford and was in great form once again at the King Power Stadium as he assisted Zlatan Ibrahimovic‘s goal just before half-time as Man United claimed all three points from the clash.
Here’s what fans on social media had to say about his performance.
Valencia has been outstanding so far, that assist summed up his first half performance. Can see him getting another after the break. #MUFC

Man United have done a brilliant job of keeping within touching distance of the top four as they now sit two points behind fourth-placed Arsenal on the Premier League table.
Hopes are they can continue their unbeaten run as they face Watford next weekend at Old Trafford in a game which could finally see them move out of sixth place.
Following the disappointing display against Hull City, an absolute demolition of Leicester City is exactly what United need to keep confidence high as they look to challenge for a Champions League qualification.
