Man Utd 1 Leicester 1: Red Devils drop MORE points in top four race but escape with draw after Maddison goal ruled out

BY JOAN WANJIKU,2ND APRIL,2022-MANCHESTER UNITED fell further behind in the top four race as they were held to a draw by Leicester.

But things could have been even worse for the Red Devils had they not been saved by VAR, which ruled out a late James Maddison winner at Old Trafford.

Forget that they finally showed a bit of character in clawing their way back and salvaging a point courtesy of that renowned goal machine Fred.

United are in danger of seeing their top four hopes blown away by Easter after this. And after yet another toothless and tepid display, it is no more than they deserved.

Centre back Maguire, remember, had copped it off his own England supporters at Wembley in midweek for his recent dismal form.

Well against Leicester he was actually one of the more solid ones in red. Just about the only one, in fact. The rest of them were shocking, shameful and, frankly, sh…t

 

They escaped with a point, didn’t really even deserve that, and looked every inch what they are – a club in chaos.

If only they gave points and prizes for heavy touches and misplaced passes, United would be a mile clear. It is hard to recall any time when the club was in such disarray.

Certainly not since the 1974 relegation year – and that’s both on AND off the pitch, not merely that desperate, despairing scramble for a fourth-placed finish.

Unhappy players, others admitting the atmosphere in the camp is poor, no sign of a new manager…
