Manchester United vs. Leicester City - Football Match Report - May 11, 2021

ESPN 11 May, 2021 - 06:01pm

Leicester City beat Manchester United 2-1 at Old Trafford on Tuesday night to solidify their position in the Premier League top four.

The result also means Manchester City have clinched the 2020-21 Premier League title, with United on 70 points from 35 matches, 10 behind Pep Guardiola's side, with three matches remaining

With a rescheduled game against Liverpool on Thursday, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer fielded a heavily rotated squad, with an in injured Harry Maguire not in the XI and facing a fitness race to be ready for United's Europa League final against Villarreal at the end of May.

Leicester opened the scoring when Youri Tielemans poured forward into space on the right flank, swinging in a teasing cross to the back post, where Luke Thomas side-footed a first-time left-foot volley into the far top corner for an early lead.

However, Man United were level five minutes later after Mason Greenwood picked up a pass from Amad Diallo and slalomed his way through the Leicester defence and into the area to tuck his well-placed shot just inside Kasper Schmeichel's far post.

Man United were unable to find another goal, though, as Leicester moved up to third place on 66 points from 36 games, two ahead of fourth-placed Chelsea who have a game in hand.

"It was a huge step [towards the Champions League]. I am so proud of the team," said Rodgers, whose side face Chelsea in the FA Cup final on Saturday.

"The players have definitely overachieved with all the big teams around. Now we can really enjoy the final at the weekend."

After the match, United coach Solskjaer said his team would need to improve to be on the level of champions City.

Just moments after rivals Manchester City secured the Premier League title, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sent a clear message to the club's hierarchy.

"If you want to take up the challenge with them we need to strengthen our squad," Solskjaer said. "The whole season has given us optimism and room for optimism but also improvement.

"Congratulations to [City]. They have had a fantastic season. I am very pleased with my boys that have made it to the last 10 days with a Manchester City side ahead of us that are lauded as the best in Europe.

"We want to take the next step and it might be that we need a couple more to strengthen the squad."

Man Utd's defeat may not affect their standing but it had major ramifications for Tuesday's opponents Leicester, as well as rivals City & Liverpool.

Man City's dominance since 2012 puts them alongside 1970s and '80s Liverpool and Man United of the '90s and 2000s as England's generational teams.

Solskjaer maintains hope Maguire can play in Europa League final after suffering ankle injury

Goal.com 11 May, 2021 - 06:01pm

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hopes Manchester United captain Harry Maguire can still play in the Europa League final despite sustaining ligament damage in his ankle.

The centre-back limped off in his side's 3-1 win at Aston Villa on Sunday, raising fears he could miss the rest of the season.

Solskjaer has suggested Maguire will miss the rest of the Red Devils' Premier League campaign, but believes he could feature against Villarreal in the European decider on May 26.

“He's obviously had the scans and the good news is there is no fracture,” Solskjaer told MUTV ahead of United's clash with Leicester on Tuesday.

“[There's] ligament damage but hopefully we will see him again this season. Hopefully, he'll be ready for the final.”

United will face Spanish side Villarreal in Gdansk on May 26.

Villarreal secured their place in the final with a 2-1 aggregate win against Arsenal in the semi-final, while United beat Roma 8-5 over two legs.

Before that game, however, Solskjaer's team will face Leicester on Tuesday, followed by their rescheduled meeting with Liverpool at Old Trafford on Thursday.

They will then round off their Premier League campaign with games against Fulham on May 18 and Wolves five days later.

Since his arrival from Wigan in August 2019, Maguire had played every minute of Premier League football for United until he was forced off with the ankle injury on Sunday.

The 28-year-old, who set a club record with his appearance against Villa, has featured 52 times in all competitions this season.

Manchester City boss Guardiola hails toughest title

Daily Mail 11 May, 2021 - 03:08pm

By Jack Gaughan for the Daily Mail

Pep Guardiola has described this title win as the toughest of his career after Manchester City lifted a third Premier League crown in four years.

Leicester City's 2-1 victory at Manchester United rubberstamped City as champions with three matches remaining.

After a sluggish start, Guardiola masterminded a run of 15 consecutive league victories to take charge of the division and never looked back.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has claimed the Premier League title for third time

City have now won five of the last 10 league titles and victory over Chelsea in the Champions League final on May 29 would cement this season as the best in the club's history.

'This has been a season and a Premier League title like no other,' Guardiola said. 'This was the hardest one. We will always remember this season for the way that we won.

'I am so proud to be the manager here and of this group of players. They are so special. To come through this season - with all the restrictions and difficulties we've faced - and show the consistency we have is remarkable.

'It is relentless. Every single day, they are there, fighting for success, trying always to be better. They have been so, so resilient.

'That is equally true of each and every member of our backroom staff, who have worked tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure that our players are fully equipped to take on the unexpected challenges and new routines throughout such a turbulent year. Not forgetting, of course, all of the staff across our organisation who work to make this club the success it is.

'Whether that's been from the offices at the City Football Academy or working from home, the efforts of every employee in such trying circumstances have contributed to this achievement.' 

Guardiola also paid tribute to one of the club's finest players of all time, Colin Bell, who passed away in January. Bell won the old First Division with City in 1968, as well as both domestic trophies and the Cup Winners' Cup during a 13-year stay at Maine Road.

City have been impressive this season and have now won the League Cup and Premier League 

'This one is really for our fans and for Colin Bell and all his family,' the Catalan added. 'It is so important to say a huge thank to all our fans. In our toughest moments, we couldn't hear the crowd get behind us as usual, but we know they are with us everywhere we go and that has lifted us.

'I promise them we sense their love, we appreciate it and we could not have done what we have done without it. I hope we can all celebrate together one day not too far away. It has been such a hard year for so many people.

'At the start of every season, the Premier League is the most important title for us. This is the one where you have to be there every three days, playing all your rivals home and away. Only by being the very best, week in week out, can you win this competition. It is a huge success.' 

In a quirk of fate, Tuesday was the second time under Guardiola that City have had a title confirmed by a United home defeat. West Brom won at Old Trafford in 2018, a surprise result that sparked an impromptu night of revelling in Cheshire for the squad.

It's been a remarkable campaign for the club, who could yet win the Champions League too

City now have the opportunity to make further history in the coming weeks against Chelsea in the European showpiece.

'Rest assured we will continue to do everything we can to bring the Champions League home this season,' captain Fernandinho said.

'I am so proud and so happy with what we have achieved. The Premier League is the hardest league in world football - every single game is tough. To win it again means the world to me and the rest of the squad.

'To captain this team is an honour and a privilege because the players have given their all throughout season, whether in training or in matches. The teamwork has been amazing.

'Football is everything to us and we strive every single day to be as good as we can be in the hope we can bring success to Manchester City. Winning the Premier League title is the ultimate fulfilment of our ambitions. It's what we all dreamed of as young players, so to do it is a wonderful feeling.

'We have missed the fans so much. We wanted to do this for them. We will enjoy this moment and we hope the fans do too.'

Manchester United’s 2-1 defeat to Leicester hands Manchester City title – as it happened

The Guardian 11 May, 2021 - 02:32pm

Richard Jolly was at Old Trafford to see Leicester boost their chances of qualification for next season’s Champions League with a victory that also guaranteed Manchester City’s coronation as Premier League champions. Here’s how he saw the action unfold ...

Ole on Manchester City’s title win: “If you want to take up the challenge with them we need to strengthen our squad,” he says. “Congratulations to them. They have had a fantastic season.

“I am very pleased with my boys that have made it to the last 10 days with a Manchester City side ahead of us that are lauded as the best in Europe. We want to take the next step and it might be that we need a couple more to strengthen the squad.”

Ole Gunnar Solskjær speaks: We started off slow as you might expect because they have not had any time to prepare for the game but after they scored we had nothing to lose,” he tells BT Sport.

“We played some very good stuff and I was pleased with it. You see the leadership with Nemanja [Matic]. Mason [Greenwood] looked like a seasoned professional and he is only 19. We have not had too much time to prepare and we went into half-time pleased. In the second half we didn’t get out of the traps and they got a goal from a corner that should have been a throw.

“It can’t be like this again. We can’t play Thursday, Sunday, Tuesday to Thursday, it is impossible. That’s the reason we made the changes. It’s unheard of. It is impossible for the players to perform at this level going from Thursday, Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday.”

Brendan Rodgers speaks: “It’s a huge step for us,” the Leicester manager tells BT Sport. “It was always going to be difficult after our last performance but I’m so proud of thre team. I thought we started the game well, Luke scores an amazing goal ... with a 19-year-old and Wesley at 20 in the backline ... they’re inexperienced but they’ve got no fear.

“Once we scored we went slow and sloppy in our passing, we gave the ball away to easily and that encouraged them. We defended well but I thought in the second half we were much better. We restricted them to very little while putting pressure on in their half of the pitch. I reinforced at half-time that we needed to keep the speed in their game.”

More from Luke Thomas: “To come out with a win gives us a great chance going into next week,” he says. “There’s always pressure but games like this when people don’t believe you can get a result. We have proved we are such a good team by getting a result.”

Nemanja Matic speaks: “We had a good team today of course some young players got a chance with some experienced players,” he says. “We had a good balance. A set-piece decided the game.

“In some parts of the game we played some amazing football but we didn’t create enough to score a second goal. We had two days [to prepare]. We had some meetings, of course we are not happy with the result, but we played some good football. The youngsters did well and showed great character against a very good side.

“We have to deal with this situation. In two days we have another big game.”

On City winning the title: “They are champions but we have to be focused on ourselves in the last three games and in the Europa League to do our best.”

Luke Thomas speaks: “Playing at Old Trafford is a dream as it is but to score here is unbelievable,” he tells BT Sport. “To be honest, with my emotions, I didn’t really know what to do. I went for a knee-slide in the corner and I was over the moon.”

Meanwhile at the Etihad Stadium: Some men in high-viz jackets have just unfurled a giant “Manchester City - Champions!” banner over the front entrance.

A quick recap: Luke Thomas put Leicester City ahead after 10 minutes with his maiden Premier League goal ... and it was a beauty. The youngster was, however, partly culpable for United’s equaliser not long afterwards, allowing Mason Greenwood to dart past him en route to scoring into the bottom corner with a shot out of nothing.

In the second half, Leicester were laying siege to United’s penalty area, if not their goal, when both managers brought on some of their big guns from the bench. Marcus Rashford’s first act was to lose his man at a corner, allowing Caglar Soyuncu to rise unmarked and power home the winner and secure three precious points for his side.

Peep! peep! Peeeeeeep! It’s a massive win for Leicester City in their bid to qualify for next season’s Champions League and their triumph at Old Trafford means Manchester City are Premier League champions.

90+3 min: Leicester win a throw-in halfway inside the United half, which they’re in no hurry to take. The ball is eventually chucked in the general direction of the corner flag.

90+1 min: Bruno Fernandes overhits a dinked ball over the top as he tries to pick out a Cavani run to the edge of the six yard box. Schmeichel gathers.

89 min: United continue to press forward. Brandon Williams sends the ball towards Rashford from the right, but under pressure from Fofana, he puts it wide with his head. We’ll have three minutes or thereabouts of added time.

87 min: Another corner for United. Marc Albrighton heads clear at the near post.

86 min: Manchester United corner. Alex Telles sends the ball into the Leicester penalty area, where Wilfred Ndidi leaps to head clear.

84 min: Manchester United go close, with Mata pulling a low ball across the face of goal for Cavani. It’s a fraction behind the substitute and Tielemans hacks it clear, but only as far as Fernandez. His wild slash is skewed wide, although I think with greater presence of mind Brandon Williams could conceivably have stuck out a leg and steered it goalwards.

82 min: Leicester are playing a 5-4-1 now, trying to hold on to their lead. As things stand, Manchester City will win the title in 10 minutes or so, while Brendan Rodgers side will pull eight points clear of West Ham in the race for fourth place, having played one game more.

80 min: Leicester substitution: Hamza Choudhury on for Jamie Vardy.

79 min: On the edge of the United penalty area, Maddison shifts the ball on to his right foot and curls a shot wide of the right upright. Manchester United substitution: Bruno Fernandes on for Amad Diallo.

77 min: Rashford tries to play Cavani in behind with a ball over the top but Ndidi blocks his pass.

75 min: Telles overhits a cross from the left, his effort to pick out Cavani’s run sailing high over the Uruguayan’s head.

73 min: Iheanacho picks out Vardy at the far post with a wonderful cross. He floats a header towards the far post. It’s drifting narrowly wide but Tielemans is unable to prod it home. He clatters into the upright at speed but is unhurt.

71 min: Tielemans makes room for a shot from the edge of the United penalty area but Axel Tuanzebe stretches to get in the way of it.

67 min: That’s the first decent corner Leicester City have taken this evening and it pays dividends. Most have gone towards the near post and been cleared, but this one went long from the boot of Albrighton and was thumped home by Soyuncu.

Leicester lead. At a corner, Soyuncu gives Marcus Rashford the slip at the far post and powers home a header. Boom!

65 min: Leicester continue to lay siege to the Manchester United penalty area without creating any chances of note. Leicester substitution: James Maddison on for Ayoze Perez. Manchester United double-substitution: Marcus Rashford and Edinson Cavani on for Mason Greenwood and Anthony Elanga.

63 min: Vardy overhits a cross into the Manchester United penalty area, where Perez and Iheanacho were waiting.

62 min: United are struggling to get the ball out of their own half and one suspects changes are imminent. They’re in danger of being over-run.
