Manchester United lost further ground in the Premier League title race yesterday, losing 4-2 to Leicester City at the King Power Stadium, in turn increasing the pressure on manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

United, despite taking the lead through Mason Greenwood in spectacular fashion, found themselves 2-1 down entering the final ten minutes of the contest, but thought they had done enough to rescue a point when Marcus Rashford made it 2-2 with just eight minutes remaining.

However, Jamie Vardy restored Leicester's lead just 15 seconds after the restart, before the Foxes wrapped up all three points in stoppage time through summer signing Patson Daka.

Defeat has left United fifth in the table, five points behind current table-toppers Chelsea.

With the defeat at Leicester having extended United's winless run to three matches in the league, pressure is mounting on Solskjaer, but the club are believed to be standing by the Norwegian.

Elsewhere, on the transfer front, United are reportedly considering a move for France and AS Monaco midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni.

'Going nowhere' - United fans deliver Solskjaer verdict after Leicester defeat

Manchester United's fans took to social media to react to their 4-2 defeat to Leicester City at the King Power Stadium yesterday afternoon.

Despite taking the lead in spectacular fashion through Mason Greenwood's fourth goal of the campaign, Leicester turned the game on its head either side of half time, thanks to goals from Youri Tielemans and Caglar Soyuncu.

United thought they had done enough to rescue a point with eight minutes left on the clock when Marcus Rashford marked his return to action in style, making it 2-2.

However, United's hopes of taking a point back up north were quashed when Jamie Vardy restored Leicester's lead immediately, making it 3-2 just one minute later. Brendan Rodgers' side then put the gloss on a fine afternoon's work with a fourth in stoppage time through summer signing Patson Daka.

United 'considering' Tchouameni move

Manchester United are contemplating a move for AS Monaco midfield ace Aurelien Tchouameni.

That is according to a report by 90Min who claim that United are 'paying increasingly close attention' to the France international.

The 21-year-old, who started France's 2-1 victory over Spain in the final of the UEFA Nations League last weekend, is reportedly attracting no shortage of attention from a series of big-name clubs, including both United and Chelsea.

Pogba honest after Leicester reverse

Paul Pogba admitted Manchester United were inferior to Leicester as his side lost 4-2 on Saturday afternoon.

United entered the international break after enduring a tumultuous string of results and their miserable form continued at the King Power Stadium despite Mason Greenwood opening the scoring with an excellent strike from the right flank.

Leicester looked the better side throughout and the final scoreline of 4-2 was a fair reflection of both sides' performances.

Pogba said:

We deserved to lose. To be honest, we have been having these kind of games for a long time. We have not found the problem, conceding easy goals, stupid goals.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer loses his nerve with big-name United players

Trouble usually brews at Manchester United when the goalkeeper is their player of the season and David de Gea is the runaway favourite to put the Sir Matt Busby statue back on his mantlepiece.

In their previous domestic away fixtures this season, De Gea had saved United points. Not this time. His denial of Youri Tielemans was his finest of the campaign and there were two more saves in under a minute before Caglar Soyuncu pounced. De Gea stared at the goal stanchion in disbelief, doubtless having flashbacks.

Gallingly for United, Soyuncu's poaching was not the winner. Their naivety in attempting to salvage victory led to their defeat, with Jamie Vardy settling an absorbing contest from kick-off after Marcus Rashford had equalised in the 82nd minute.

And so the gap widens. Not majorly, but wide enough for this to become an ominous October for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. If Liverpool inflict defeat at Old Trafford next week they will be seven points clear of United.
