Manchester United defender Chris Smalling not taking Leicester lightly

Despite continuing their unbeaten run of games, they still sit in sixth position, four points adrift of Liverpool in fourth place on the table.

They still could and should have won the game, but didn't, and were met by the mild boos not of a fanbase disenchanted with its club's manager, but one who simply hadn't enjoyed their evening and didn't know what else to bloody do.

He said: "I didn't know the players very well". Ranieri would be hoping that they would have rekindled Mahrez's goal scoring form in the league as well.

Mourinho's men can not afford to drop any more points and the fans will find some optimism in the stat that they've beaten the Foxes in the last five meetings, whereas recording the third consecutive win.

"It would be easy for me to say that we want to play better, that we want to improve the quality of my game, that we want to improve the relationship between the players and the fans". Is he a thoroughbred talent who requires freedom from defensive responsibility yet more modern tactical instruction when attacking, but is instead getting defensive instruction and then left responsible for himself in a limited area of attack? So, nobody would expect them, I think not even them, to be fighting for the title again, but the manager is there, the players are there, and they are a very good team.
