Ratings: Leicester City 1-2 Manchester United – FA Community Shield

Leicester City FACS

Manchester United did not have many chances in the first half but Jesse Lingard showed another spark of class at Wembley after picking up the ball in the center of Leicester’s half. The young Englishman took a smart touch forward and continued to dribble through the Premier League champions defence until he found himself one-on-one with Kasper Schmeichel, whom he slipped the ball by to put United 1-0 up. Leicester equalised after Marouane Fellaini gave up a poor back-pass to gift Jamie Vardy a goal to start off the second half. United and Leicester both had chances throughout the remainder of the match until United scored the winning goal through Zlatan Ibrahimovic who rose to head home a wonderful Antonio Valencia cross. United’s 2-1 win gives manager Jose Mourinho his first piece of silverware at Manchester United.
