Leicester City midfielder James Maddison aimed a dig at Manchester United on Saturday.
Following the 1-1 draw at Old Trafford, Maddison told Sky Sports: “We’re a little bit disappointed that we haven’t come away with three points, which tells you the story about coming to this place at the minute.
“Sometimes you can almost feel in control even without the ball. They obviously played with Bruno and Pogba without a recognised striker.
“They’ve got tricky players in wide areas, but I felt we were in control. We were actually the better team.”
"It was a great feeling for about three minutes" 🙄

Maddison had a second half goal ruled out by VAR for a foul on Raphael Varane and neither side were able to find a winner at the end, though Marcus Rashford came close only to be fouled by his team-mate.
As a United fan, I find it hard to argue with any of this because we were appalling against Leicester City. I didn’t think our opponents were anything special – average at best – but the Red Devils couldn’t grab the game by the scruff of the next.
It was lacklustre from start to finish.
The fact Maddison thinks Leicester had control of the game, even without the ball, tells you that there’s a lot of work needed with this group of players. Hopefully a few of them get their marching orders in the summer.
