Leicester -

Leicester City menjamu Manchester United di lanjutan Piala FA. Babak pertama, skor sementara 1-1.

Leicester City vs Manchester United berlangsung di King Power Stadium, Senin (22/3) dini hari WIB dalam lanjutan Piala FA. Kedua tim langsung bermain terbuka kala peluit babak pertama dibunyikan.

Leicester City tidak diperkuat pemain sayapnya, Harvey Barnes karena cedera. Sedangkan Manchester United, mencadangkan Bruno Fernandes yang perannya diambil alih oleh Donny van de Beek.

Harry Maguire punya peluang di menit ke-12. Sayang, tandukannya masih muda diamankan oleh Kasper Schmeichel.

Menit ke-17, Leicester gantian menyerang. Tembakan Jamie Vardy dari dalam kotak penalti mampu dimentahkan Dean Henderson.

Gol Leicester City!

Menit ke-24, Leicester City mencetak gol lewat Kelechi Ihenacho. Diawali dari tendangan gawang, Henderson mengoper pendek ke Harry Maguire. Selanjutnya, bola bergulir ke Fred.

Fred mengirim back pass ke Henderson, tapi mampu dicuri oleh Ihenacho. Nama terakhir, sedikit mengecoh Henderson lalu dengan mudah menceploskan gol.

Leicester City selanjutnya tampil lebih kalem. Sementara Manchester United, kesulitan membangun serangan.

Beberapa kali, Manchester United mentok di depan kotak penalti Leicester City. Sebaliknya, tuan rumah terus memanfaatkan celah dengan mengandalkan kecepatan lari Vardy dan Ihenacho.

Menit ke-38, Mason Greenwood mencatatkan namanya di papan skor dan membuat skor imbang 1-1. Diawali pergerakan Paul Pogba di sisi kana pertahanan Leicester, Pogba melepas umpan tarik.

Donny van de Beek membiarkan bola melewati kolongnya dan di belakangnya ada Greenwood yang melepas sepakan keras berujung gol.
