Way­ne Roo­ney was dropped for the fir­st time since Box­ing Day 2015 for Man­chester United´s ga­me ag­ainst reign­ing cham­pi­ons Lei­cester City. Waz­za ev­entually came on for Mar­cus Rash­ford in the 83rd min­ute of the tie, but lacked time to make an impact.

Man­chester Uni­ted mo­ved up to sixth place in the Pre­mier Lea­gue ta­ble wi­th a re­as­sur­ing 4-1 ho­me vic­tory over Lei­cester, and re­cently ap­poin­ted man­ager Jose Mou­rinho had every reas­on to be con­tent fol­low­ing the mat­ch. Af­ter be­ing dropped from the start­ing lineup, Way­ne Roo­ney watched from the sub­stitutes´ bench as Uni­ted went in­to a 4-0 fir­st ha­lf lead thanks to goals from Chris Small­ing, Ju­an Ma­ta, Mar­cus Rash­ford, and Paul Po­gba. Eng­land U21 in­ter­na­tion­al De­marai Gray ma­naged to re­duce the de­fi­cit for The Foxes four­teen min­utes in­to the sec­ond ha­lf, but the hosts were nev­er threat­ened in this ga­me. Jose Mou­rinho: “Today Man­chester Uni­ted had in­tens­ity, move­ment and dy­nam­ism. To be back ho­me and be­at the reign­ing Pre­mier Lea­gue cham­pi­ons is good.
