Leicester City panics Bruno Fernandes after seeing Man Utd’s score

The Leicester City players returned to the locker room after the victory over Crystal Palace hoping that Manchester United had slipped away, only to see that they had run a riot against Bournemouth.

The two teams are fighting for a spot in the Champions League next season, with Leicester in third place just three points ahead of the Red Devils after an under-par start following the resumption of the season.

On Saturday, however, they returned to winning ways, saying goodbye to Crystal Palace 3-0 thanks to the support of Jamie Vardy, who joined the Premier League 100 goals club.

United, meanwhile, had a potential banana peel at the same time against the relegation he fought against Bournemouth, although the Cherries were wiped out by a rampant Red Devils performance, which he won 5-2.

The top three of Mason Greenwood’s home team, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial have all entered the scoreboard, while January signing Bruno Fernandes – who has been sensational since swapping Sporting for Old Trafford – was back on target.

The Leicester players would have hoped to see United slip away and relieve pressure on them in the game for the top four, but they were only disappointed when they returned to the locker room.

Wilfried Ndidi filmed teammate Kelechi Iheanacho watching United’s result on his cell phone as he slipped on a baguette, passing the score on to the rest of the locker room.

“How many have scored Greenwood?” Ndidi chuckled.

“Two”, replied a disappointed Iheanacho, who then eliminated the other scorers: “Rashford, Martial … Bruno Fernandes will always score. Always score”.

Speaking about the importance of beating Palace, Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers said after the game: ‘It was very important for us to get back to winning. Obviously we have had that winning feeling in the last 14 months or so, so being in this small negative period, obviously we are here to win and we want to win.

‘But we weren’t too excited. We wanted to do better. I have never calculated the value of players in this last four game period because we hadn’t won. Their talent led them to the position they are in, which nobody would have expected us to be there.

‘It was just a matter of strengthening what we are good at and what is the basis of our work, and therefore we know that we can win games. Winning games give you confidence and this will be a huge increase in confidence now for the remaining games. ‘
