- Vardy breaks Van Nistelrooy’s record
- Schweinsteiger finds equalizer
- De Gea, Schmeichel stand tall in second half
The top-end tilt between Leicester City and Manchester United lived up to its billing for 45 minutes before petering out in a 1-1 draw at King Power Stadium.
That won’t change the enduring memory of the match for the Leicester City faithful, as Jamie Vardy made Premier League history by scoring in his 11th-consecutive game to break United legend Ruud van Nistelrooy’s record.
Leicester is level on points with first-place Manchester City, but behind on goal differential. United is a point off the pace, in third.

Vardy’s took a tidy touch before belting a low shot past David De Gea‘s right leg, sending the King Power Stadium crowd into a state of euphoria with a 1-0 lead against the PL powers.
Schweinsteiger leveled things before halftime, powering in a corner from Daley Blind.

1 – Bastian Schweinsteiger has scored his first goal since May (v Mainz for Bayern Munich). Level.

Leicester had its chance to go up denied by a fine point-blank save by De Gea, as Leonardo Ulloa was denied by the Spaniard.
