Chipolopolo striker Patson Daka opened his Premier League goal account for Leicester City, stunning Manchester United as Leicester City beat the English giants 4-2 at the King Power Stadium.

Daka scored in the first minute of injury time to help end Manchester United’s unbeaten run away from home in the Premier League.

Youri Tielemans, Caglar Soyuncu, Jamie Vardy scored the other goals for Leicester City as United’s record-breaking streak stopped after 29 matches.

Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford grabbed the goals for the visitors but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side failed to win in the league for the third consecutive game.

The result sees United fall out of the top four and four points behind leaders Liverpool.

Leicester went close to opening the scoring after five minutes but Harry Maguire cleared off the line to prevent Vardy from scoring into an empty net.

Leicester City dominated the early stages but United took the lead after 19 minutes when Greenwood exchanged passes with Bruno Fernandes before firing a stunning strike into the top corner.

Leicester grabbed the equaliser after the half hour mark as Kelechi Iheanacho capitalised on Maguire’s error and set up Tielemans who produced a fantastic curling effort past David de Gea.

The game came to life with 12 minutes remaining when Soyuncu fired home from close range from a corner to put Leicester in the lead.

Four minutes later, substitute Rashford made it 2-2 when he latched onto Victor Lindelof’s pass.

However, Leicester went back ahead seconds later after Vardy pounced onto Ayoze Perez’s ball.

Daka sealed the win for Leicester in stoppage time with a header at the back post to increase pressure on Solskjaer.
