It’s just started bucketing down with rain as Leicester set about building on their early lead. That was a splendid goal, with Leicester City attacking down the right flank. The cross from Youri Tielemans was inch-perfect and Thomas leapt on the angle of the six-yard box to guide a volley into the far top corner. Jamnie Vardy was in front of him and ready to leap for the ball, but he heard a shot from Thomas and left it.
Marc Albrighton curls a cross into the edge of the six-yard box, where Vardy gets across Eric Bailly and tries to flick it goalwards with his heel. It’s slightly out of reach and he doesn’t get enough on it but that was an excellent sprint to the near post.
Nemanja Matic concedes the first corner after Jamie Vardy had robbed Axel Tuanzebe of the ball on the edge of the final third and tried to pick out Iheanacho in the Manchester United penalty area. Alex Telles heads the inswinger clear at the near post and hurts himself in the process, shipping a bang on the head.
Leicester have lined up with five at ther back, with Marc Albrighton and Luke Thomas playing as wing-backs. Ayoze Perez is in the hole behind Jamie Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho.
Amad Diallo gets an early touch on his Premier League debut, also putting the ball out for a throw-in courtesy of a misplaced pass under pressure.
Greenwood equalises! Having received a low cross from Amad Diallo on the edge of the Leicester penalty area, Greenwood advances past Soyuncu, takes it wide into space past Luke Thomas and fires a low diagonal effort past the outstretched arm of Schmeichel and into the bottom corner.
