FIRST HALF UPDATES:
0' KICK OFF
0' KICK OFF! We're underway in an absolutely massive match in terms of implications for the league table.
5' United are attacking the Stretford End this half which is unusual but hopefully we can get ahead early.
8' MANCHESTER UNITED GOAL AND WE'RE AHEAD! LINGARD FEEDS VALENCIA THROUGH ON THE WING, WHO CROSSES WITH HIS RIGHT FOOT (OBVIOUSLY) TO THE FAR POST FOR MARTIAL TO EASILY SLOT HOME!
13' Lingard forces a great save from Schmeichel! A beautifully worked piece of play ends with Rojo crossing to Fellaini who chests and lays Lingard off but his near-post shot is well saved by Schmeichel.
16' LEICESTER CITY GOAL Drinkwater floats in a very good ball from a free kick and Morgan just runs onto it and easily nods past De Gea!
21' Martial wins a free kick in a dangerous position but Fellaini should be off the field. Elbows and slapped Robert Huth in the neck, but to be fair Huth was all over him... The free kick is into the wall and cleared.
30' Lingard is through after a bad mistake by Simpson! He eventually goes to ground under pressure from Lingard but despite all the appeals, there's no free kick or card given!
38' NERVY MOMENTS! Schlepp whips a great cross in that threatens De Gea's goal and he palms it away before Mahrez squares up Rojo and knocks the ball past him, but Oliver says he went down too easily in the box and there's no penalty given.
45' ONE MINUTE ADDED
45+1' HALF TIME
SECOND HALF UPDATES:
45' We're underway for the second half!
51' Leicester have been on the front foot for most of the half so far and we need to find a way back into this if we want to have a chance at top 4.
52' MANCHESTER UNITED YELLOW CARD Lingard is in the book for a late slide tackle on Schlupp on the wing.
56' MANCHESTER UNITED YELLOW CARD Carrick goes into the book for cynically stopping a Leicester counter attack.
58' LEICESTER CITY YELLOW CARD Drinkwater drags Rashford back on the wing as Rashford was bursting away at pace.
61' MANCHESTER UNITED SUBSTITUTION Mata ON || Lingard OFF
61' Rooney just tried chipping Schmeichel before the change. Lovely to see and that's the ambitious Rooney I miss, even if the attempt was wayward.
65' MANCHESTER UNITED YELLOW CARD Rooney goes into the book after Mahrez goes down very easily and Rooney shows some dissent.
65' LEICESTER CITY SUBSTITUTION Gray ON || Okazaki OFF
70' With 20 minutes left, it's anyone's game but we desperately need this win. It'll put us a point behind City with them still having to play at Arsenal.
74' MANCHESTER UNITED SUBSTITUTION Herrera ON || Fellaini OFF
77' LEICESTER CITY SUBSTITUTION Albrighton ON || Schlupp OFF
80' There are ten minutes left and it looks like both teams are going all out for the win.
82' MANCHESTER UNITED SUBSTITUTION Memphis ON || Rashford OFF
86' LEICESTER CITY RED CARD Drinkwater is sent off! But WE SHOULD HAVE A PENALTY! Oliver gives it on the edge of the box..
87' LEICESTER SUBSTITUTION King ON || Mahrez OFF
90' FOUR MINUTES ADDED
90+4' FULL TIME
