Video: Solskjaer left frustrated by Leicester City draw

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was left frustrated after his side played out a 2-2 draw with Leicester City at the King Power Stadium in the Premier League on Boxing Day.

Marcus Rashford put the visitors ahead before Harvey Barnes equalised less than 10 minutes later.

United thought they had done enough to clinch three points after Bruno Fernandes made it 2-1 with just over 10 minutes left on the clock.

An own goal by Axel Tuanzebe brought the sides level again, with Jamie Vardy getting the recognition early on.

Speaking to BT Sport after the game Solskjaer felt United could have come away with the win.

“Of course, disappointed that we didn’t win this afternoon, we had loads a big chances and we could have finished it off, but then again, they’re a very dangerous side a quality side and the goal from Vardy just shows his quality.”

Leicester drop to third place in the Premier League standings, with United a point behind in fourth place. Everton jumped to second after their win over Sheffield United last night.

Solskjaer has urged his players to look forward now with the aim to mount a title challenge.

“We’ve got a game in three days, we’ve got an extra recovery day which we will use wisely.

“One point is not the worst result but we’re disappointed we didn’t get away with three here because it’s a very good side we were playing against.”
