Is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s job at risk? Comment below
Leicester snapped United’s 19 games unbeaten run away from home and Solskjaer took responsibility for the defeat.
He said: “When you look at the game after, the four goals we conceded were poor. The way we played we don’t deserve to continue that (away unbeaten) run.
“I pick the team, Harry Maguire showed no reaction and I hold my hand up if that does not work out. If we concede four, I probably made a bad decision.
“Lately we have not been in great form, lost too many points and that is something we have to look at. We might have to change, do we need more legs in there? What do we need?
“I have got many good players. Fred, Edinson Cavani, you miss them. I am not making excuses for the team I put out there, they are top footballers and we have not produced.

“It says everything our best player was David but we still conceded four goals.
“We have to dust ourselves off. Make sure that when we come in again, freshen our minds, we’ve looked ourselves in the mirror, I’ve looked myself in the mirror, and make sure we perform. That is the nature of football, you have to respond to set-backs.”
Paul Pogba added: “To be honest we have been having this kind of game for a long time and we have not found what the problem is.
“We have conceded easy goals and stupid goals.
“In these sort of games on this sort of pitch, they will push and put pressure on us.
“We need to be more mature I think, and play with more experience – we need to have more arrogance, in a good way.
“We have to take the ball and play our football, but now we have to find what is the key and reason for this loss, because we deserved to lose today.”
