Rashford scored twice and Sancho came off the bench to secure a point against the Foxes.

It hasn’t been smooth sailing for United. Leicester were on the upside at certain times in the first half and looked likely to break the deadlock.

David De Gea put in some attacks and the Spaniard did not disappoint.
