Leicester City exposed the true nature of Manchester United‘s defense after fighting back from 3-1 to win 5-3.
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 hit back through a David Nugent penalty and Esteban Cambiasso equalised before Jamie Vardy and a Ulloa penalty secured the win.
The turning point was a controversial second-half penalty. Referee Mark Clattenburg allowed Vardy to barge Rafael just outside the box but, as the two players continued their battle in the area, the United defender brought down the striker clumsily and the official pointed towards the spot.
