Leicester 5-3 Man Utd Highlights

Leicester City fought back from 3-1 down to secure a stunning victory over a defensively frail Manchester United.

United were on course for a win when a Robin van Persie header and a magical Angel Di Maria chip put them ahead.

Leonardo Ulloa’s header reduced the deficit before Ander Herrera’s back heel extended United’s lead.

But Leicester’s hit back through a David Nugent penalty and Esteban Cambiasso equalised before Jamie Vardy and a Ulloa penalty secured the win.
