Pressure mounts on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as Manchester United unbeaten away run ended by Leicester City

CNN

The pressure on Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was ratcheted up a few notches on Saturday afternoon as his side lost 4-2 to Leicester City in the Premier League.

Solskjaer’s team had the perfect start though, with England sensation Mason Greenwood rifling United in front after 18 minutes.

However, on an afternoon where United struggled, Leicester came roaring back, as goals from Youri Tielemans and Caglar Soyuncu turned the game on its head.

Soyuncu’s goal sparked a crazy end to the game, with Marcus Rashford equalizing just minutes later, only for Jamie Vardy to pull Leicester back ahead 54 seconds later.

Patson Daka’s first goal for Leicester wrapped up the victory in the dying moments, and meant United has failed to win any of its last three Premier League games and only once in its last five games in all competitions.

The defeat ends United’s 29-game unbeaten run away from home — an English league record.

When asked about his side’s performance, the Norwegian called it a “bad day.”
