Leicester City vs Manchester United: Three-straight for Ten Hag’s men

0 Comments

Jadon Sancho’s first-half goal was enough to give Manchester United its third-straight win, a 1-0 defeat of struggling Leicester City at King Power Stadium on Thursday.

The Red Devils stretched their clean-sheet run to 189 minutes, as David De Gea was only asked to make two saves and claimed a pair of crosses.

Man United had less than 50% of the ball and took eight of the game’s 15 shots, though The Red Devils move into fifth place on nine points through five games.

That’s 14 spots and eight more points than Leicester City, who will know it got a little fortunate not to concede more goals late.


What we learned from Leicester vs Manchester United

Ten Hag’s tightened ’em up: Manchester United started the season 0-2, allowing six goals over two games to two teams who are good but not world beaters (yet!). Erik ten Hag then removed his captain Harry Maguire, trusting new signing Lisandro Martinez to play alongside Raphael Varane. It was a brave move but one he simply had to make at the time (Cristiano Ronaldo and Luke Shaw also lost their places).

There were chances late, with James Justin and James Maddison failing to take half chances, but Ten Hag will be happy with the zeroes. Since the switch, United has allowed one goal over 270 minutes and it was scored by Mohamed Salah. It’s what you get when a manager is given real power and it has United in a much-improved position even before Casemiro or Antony start a match in red.

‘Brendy’ Watch? Well this is just bad. Leicester has one point from five matches, an Opening Day draw at home to Brentford. It’s been a tough run of fixtures, as the Foxes have lost to Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea, and Southampton, but this team is a far cry from good or even fun. The club’s sold Kasper Schmeichel and Wesley Fofana and so their back five on Thursday was Danny Ward, Luke Thomas, Jonny Evans, Wilfred Ndidi, and James Justin. That says a lot — though Evans was mostly solid — about the state of the team.

Brendan Rodgers has done plenty of good in his time as a boss but he’s got a massive challenge ahead as Jamie Vardy doesn’t look right, Youri Tielemans is going to leave within a year, and Patson Daka and Kelechi Iheanacho are not getting minutes. It’s possible that results could dictate Sept. 10’s game between Leicester and Aston Villa has both Rodgers and former player Steven Gerrard playing for their jobs.

Sancho finding his footing: It took a year and three managers, but Jadon Sancho’s looking more like the Sancho who lit up the Bundesliga. Thursday more about the lone chance and his ability to take it but it hardly could have come at a better time as Anthony Elanga or Sancho will soon lose a job to new signing Antony and both could be on the bench if Rashford keeps playing well and Ronaldo gets a run up top.


Tactical Focus

Leicester got hold of the game after halftime and Ten Hag sacrificed Anthony Elanga and then Sancho for old Real Madrid teammates Cristiano Ronaldo and Casemiro. It was a bid to try and swing the match back in United’s favor.

Stars of the Show

Jadon Sancho: Got a chance. Took it. And it made all of the difference.

Marcus Rashford: He’s finding himself again as a motor for the attack. Is a goal run soon to follow?

Raphael Varane: The ex-Real Madrid man continues to ooze class and allow Lisandro Martinez to play with full aggression.

Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall: The reason Leicester would’ve felt alright selling Tielemans continues to run his shorts off.

Jonny Evans: Loads of clearances as Leicester had to open up for an equalizer.


What’s next

Leicester goes to Brighton at 9am ET Sunday, 2.5 hours before Manchester United hosts unbeaten Arsenal in what’s suddenly looking like a match befitting the two clubs’ reputations.

Chelsea vs Leicester: No red card blues for 10-man Blues

0 Comments

Conor Gallagher’s first-half red card upped the challenge level for Chelsea, but suspended boss Thomas Tuchel watched from the stands and his 10-man Blues beat struggling Leicester City 2-1 on Saturday at Stamford Bridge.

WATCH CHELSEA vs LEICESTER FULL MATCH REPLAY STREAM – LINK

Gallagher was sent off for a foul almost 60 yards from goal in the 28th minute, his second yellow card in six minutes, and Chelsea looked set to strap in for slog against the wounded Foxes.

But Chelsea outscored Leicester despite going down a man as Raheem Sterling scored a pair of second-half goals and Leicester managed only one Harvey Barnes marker.

Chelsea moves onto seven points, the same as Liverpool and Manchester United, while Leicester has just a single point and sits 19th on the Premier League table.

What we learned from Chelsea vs Leicester

Sterling Sterling special: Yes, his first goal took a deflection to help beat Danny Ward and his second marker was great service from Reece James, but the ex-Liverpool and Man City star is looking very much like the star of the show for a Chelsea team that was missing N’Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic and would’ve had every excuse to come away with a point or less following Gallagher’s red card.

Gallagher shows lack of composure: If Gallagher was looking to make Thomas Tuchel believe he should be a regular starter over Mateo Kovacic, N’Golo Kante, or any other Chelsea player, the manager would’ve had an improved view when Gallagher took his second yellow in the Leicester half. Gallagher could’ve let anyone else foul the ball carrier in Leicester’s counterattack but instead just lost his sense and sent his team down to 10.

Only glimpses for sad Leicester: Jamie Vardy and Harvey Barnes combined for a pretty goal to get the score to 2-1 and the Foxes will know they were without Wesley Fofana — who looks set for Chelsea, oddly enough — and the injured James Maddison, but those excuses feel hollow considering the expectations for this Brendan Rodgers project. Not to put this on the manager, but the fact remains that their chances came against 10 men. Just like scoring twice against Arsenal while conceding four, there’s a huge black cloud around any silver lining this season (so far) for the King Power Stadium set.


Tactical focus

This one’s less about tactics as it was the mentality.

 [ VIDEO: Premier League highlights ]

It’s not just that Chelsea overcame the 28th-minute sending-off, it’s that the Blues did not look bothered for an instant once going down a man. Maybe that says something about the perceived Leicester threat, but Chelsea was almost instantly rearranged for a successful 10v11 test.

All that said, it’s a good thing Chelsea’s keeper stood up to be counted on the inevitable chances that arrive when your club has one less player than the other guys!
