FULL-TIME: Manchester United 1-1 Leicester City. A dramatic first half saw each side grab a goal through Martial and then Morgan, but a largely uninspiring second half saw neither team able to grab a second goal. Leicester will now need to rely on Chelsea getting a result against Tottenham tomorrow if they want to win the league this week, but still have two more matches to wrap up the title. The result means Manchester United's top four hopes have taken a massive dent and it looks unlikely they'll be able to sneak into the last Champions League spot.
...
90+3': United are pushing Leicester but have been wasteful with possession. Leicester have a freekick in what should be the last chance of the game.
...
90+1': A ball is sent across the outside of the box by Martial and Schmeichel manages to beat an open Rooney to the ball and clear it.
...
90': United are looking bereft of ideas up forward now and look unlikely to grab a winner...
...
United will really need to push for it in these final minutes if they want to make the top four!
...
90': There will be four minutes of added time.
...
89': Memphis hits the freekick into the wall and it falls back to Rooney who hits a shot towards the top right corner, but it's not hard enough and Schmeichel saves comfortably.
...
88': Rooney's freekick is hard at goal but Schmeichel deflects it out. United have another freekick on the edge of the area.
...
87': Sub for Leicester - Mahrez comes off for Andy King. Rooney and Mata stand over the freekick.
...
85': Danny Drinkwater pulls down Memphis as he drives into the box and is sent off for a second yellow. However Memphis appeared to be inside the area and United are unlucky not to have a penalty. Controversey.
...
83': United will need to push for a win here if they want any chance of the top four, while Leicester can hold onto a draw and potentially win the title if Chelsea beat or draw Tottenham tomorrow.
...
82': United are again dominating possession but are creating few chances.
...
81': Sub for United - Memphis replaces Rashford.
...
79': After a promising United attack, Leicester hit on the counter and Mahrez reaches Ulloa, who fires a looping shot towards goal but Rooney manages to pass back to De Gea with his head.
...
77': Rooney crosses into the box and reaches the head of Smalling who puts the ball onto the outside of the right post, beating the diving Schmeichel. Unlucky.
...
75': Martial rushes into the Leicester box and sends a hard pass across goal but it goes wide.
...
76': Sub for Leicester - Schlupp comes off for Albrighton.
...
75': Leicester have been continuously sending the ball into the United box, however the United defence remains strong.
...
74': Fellaini is replaced by Ander Herrera.
...
74': A cross reaches Fellaini in the box but he accidentally hits the ball on his hands as it falls to his feet.
...
...
70': Mahrez dances around the United defence on the edge of the box before unleashing a powerful shot which is punched away by De Gea.
...
69': A corner for Manchester United sees Fellaini head the ball high and wide. One of few chances for either side this half.
...
...
66': Sub for Leicester - Okazaki is replaced by Demarai Gray.
...
66': Rooney pulls down Mahrez and receives a yellow card.
...
63': What was an open game has become somewhat cagey now. Will be interesting to see if either team really goes for the win.
...
60': Sub for Manchester United - Lingard is replaced by Juan Mata.
...
60': United certainly aren't playing as they did in the first half and are struggling to create any chances. They're starting to look much more like the toothless side that we've seen over the past 18 months.
...
54': Lingard receives a yellow card for a late challenge.
...
57': Rashford is released by Rooney on the left and Drinkwater impedes him. The former United defender receives a yellow card.
