Bruno Fernandes further underlined his importance to Manchester United by equalling a Premier League set by Portuguese compatriot Cristiano Ronaldo.
Jamie Vardy forced a late leveller to rescue a point for Leicester and deny United what would have been an impressive win.
Fernandes scored Manchester United’s second goal against Leicester
The striker thought he was leaving the field with an 85th-minute equaliser in a 2-2 draw after Fernandes’ goal looked to have won it for the visitors, but it was quickly deemed United defender Axel Tuanzebe’s deflection was the pivotal touch.
Marcus Rashford’s opener, his 50th in the Premier League, had earlier been cancelled out by Harvey Barnes.
United missed the chance to leapfrog the Foxes – who drew in the league for the first time this season – and remain a point behind their hosts.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side stretched their unbeaten top-flight run to eight games but a draw does little to help their quest to chase down leaders Liverpool, who are three points ahead of Leicester having played a game less.
The importance of Fernandes to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer cannot be underestimated
The 26-year-old is capable of mixing it with the very best in world football

  • 35 – Robert Lewandowski
  • 34 – Lionel Messi
  • 31 – Bruno Fernandes
  • 30 – Cristiano Ronaldo

Fernandes, who has become the most important player for Solskjaer since arriving in January, became the first Portuguese player since Ronaldo to score ten goals in a Premier League season.
The Juventus forward, who left the Red Devils in 2009 to join Real Madrid, also moved to Old Trafford from Sporting Lisbon before becoming one of the best players in the world.
Fernandes is trying to drag United up the table seemingly on a weekly basis and is delivering world class performances in order to mount the clubs first title charge since 2013.
The 26-year-old now has 31 goals involvements since arriving during the 2020 January transfer window; meaning he is amongst the like of Lionel Messi, Robert Lewandowski and Ronaldo.
