Manager reaction

Leicester 1-1 Man Utd

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal, speaking to Sky Sports: "In the third or fourth phase we have to create more but it is difficult - you have seen where Leicester are on the pitch, double on the 60-metre area. A lot of bodies in front you makes it more difficult."

Ranieri praises Man Utd boss

Leicester 1-1 Man Utd

Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri speaking to Sky Sports about Louis van Gaal: "I think he is doing a very good job, his team are very close to the top of the league and I think he will fight until the end."

Twelve Premier League sides played today - including the top three. Only one club kept a clean sheet - Sunderland.

There was a time English fans say @FCBarcelona & Spain style of play was boring. #mufc #bbcfootball

#bbcfootball Even Messi and Ronaldo wouldn't get more than 10 goals with this choking system LVG is making @ManUtd play. He should change!

calling 4 LVG to be sacked? Really? 1 point off the top of the table; yes at the moment we are boring but it could be worse #bbcfootball

'Vardy's goal was amazing'

More from Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal in his BBC Match of the Day interview: "We didn’t give too many chances away and this against a team who scores the most, or one of the most, in the league.

"Wayne Rooney was limping and that is why I changed him. I already wanted to change one of the strikers because they were not always running in behind. There were some times when if we were quick we had space to do that but we didn't so that is why I wanted to bring Memphis in. Maybe I would have changed Martial."

On Jamie Vardy's goalscoring record: "Amazing and fantastic. The goal he scored is also amazing because it is not so easy. I can say our organisation is bad but he is provoking that also.

"It is a fantastic record to have, 11 matches in a row. Not many players will do that."

'McNair was playing like a striker'

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal, speaking to BBC Sport: "I am disappointed. I have the feeling we could have won his match. 

"We dominated 90 minutes but we gave the goal away, because we know already that Leicester is a counter team and also with our corner kicks they are very dangerous. We showed images of this also.

"We cannot give that goal away. Of course we are happy that we could score before half-time and in the second half we dominated more than in the first but we didn’t create too much. 

"The chance of Memphis when he should have controlled better and Bastian with his head, we could have won. Ulloa had also a chance, but we have given that away because our organisation in that phase was not good. McNair was playing like a striker and that he cannot do."

No need to bring the rest of the quotes. We heard it last time ... and the time before... #bbcfootball #sackLVG

Just doing our duty, Dara...

A niche stat

25 - There were 25 Premier League goals scored today - no day in PL history has seen more goals scored with six games played exactly. Feast.

'We wanted to help Jamie achieve the record'

Leicester 1-1 Man Utd

Claudio Ranieri

Claudio Ranieri, Leicester boss, speaking to BBC Sport: "I'm satisfied with a draw against a big team like Manchester United. The result was not easy. Of course we wanted to win the match, but they are a great team, very well organised, they keep possession and the move the ball. It was important that we kept it compact and ours was an amazing performance. 

"I'm very, very happy. We wanted to win today, but also we wanted to help Jamie achieve the record. Well done to my players for helping Jamie Vardy to score. 

"The whole team are in very good physical condition and they have a good mentality. They want to do their best until the end, and if the opponent is better than us on the day then well done to the opponent. But we played well today and I think our supporters enjoyed the match. 

"I'm very happy we have Vardy as our striker - we want to keep him here for a long time. I hope Vardy continues these very good performances. 

"Our first priority remains 40 points - that is our goal, to keep us in the Premier League. As soon as we get there we can look to take another step."

The United boss took off Wayne Rooney because he had picked up a knock following a clash with Robert Huth.

"Maybe I would have changed Anthony Martial" instead he says.

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal is chatting with BBC Match of the Day's Steve Wilson. He says he's disappointed and they dominated the 90 minutes.

We'll bring you the rest of his quotes as soon as we can type them out.

Question for Man Utd fans....can they seriously challenge for the title playing like that? Are they now just a joyless, functional side?

'This fantastic man'

Leicester City

Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri on Sky Sports: "It was an amazing match, very difficult because United keep possession very well. We made a good tactical match. At the first mistake they can score a goal so you have to concentrate.

"I am very happy. We had two objectives - to win the match and try to help Vardy break the record.

"Jamie made the record, it is fantastic for us. An incredible achievement. Five years ago he played in non-league, it is difficult to grow up so quickly and this fantastic man is not only our goalscorer but he presses, he works hard, he is important.

"It is a different United team than before. A different manager, different players. But Van Gaal is doing a very good job. Last season he was getting to know the players and now he is very close to the top of the league.

"Our goal is 40 points. Be safe. And then when we achieve that we speak together."

Another record for Vardy

No Leicester player has ever scored more goals in a Premier League season than Jamie Vardy has already (14).

He has another 24 games to extend that record. If he ends the season at Leicester of course... 

'Vardy just concentrates on the game'

Leicester striker Jamie Vardy, speaking to BBC Sport: "I’m delighted to have got the goal. It’s a bit disappointing the way we conceded their goal because it could have been three points.

"On another day it could have gone another way but a draw is a fair result. We have come away with a point from a match against a very good side.

"I’ve just been taking each game as it comes. The record was not in my mind, it would have affected my performance and the team’s, and that’s the last thing I wanted to do.

"I can think about it when I am home but as soon as I cross the white line all I should be concentrating on is my football. That’s what I have been doing and exactly what I will continue to do."

im no man u fan but to those ripping on rooney from an England point of view, remember he does score and play well for england #bbcfootball

How many goals would Vardy get for LVG's United? None. He'd be on the right wing & hardly see the opposition area #MUFC #LEIMUN #bbcfootball

Absolutely shocking tactics from LVG. Time for him to go, 300m spent and we're going nowhere. Ancelotti is available #bbcfootball.

What next for Vardy?

The internet claims a man once said of Alexander the Great: "When Alexander saw the breadth of his domain, he wept for there were no more worlds to conquer."

Well it's not quite the same for Jamie Vardy - he still has records he can break.

As people who hate 'Premier League era' stats are keen to remind everyone, Jimmy Dunne scored in 12 successive First Division games for Sheffield United in the 1930s.

So Vardy can level that at Swansea next Saturday. And then I'm sure we can find more records for him to chase.

'You have to win at Leicester'

United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger was asked by BBC Sport if he was happy to get a draw.

“Why? We are Manchester United.  When you come to Leicester you have to win.

"I am happy to finally score. It was a very important moment, just before half-time.

"But I am not so happy because we are Manchester United and if you want to win something, you have to win at Leicester. We didn’t play well. 

"Vardy is playing really well and is dangerous, he runs in the channels, That’s why we are not happy to concede that goal. He did well to break the record."

'We have to improve, definitely'

Leicester 1-1 Man Utd

Bastian Schweinsteiger, Man Utd

Manchester United goalscorer Bastian Schweinsteiger in the King Power tunnel: "We know the runs that Jamie Vardy tries, so that goal means we're not happy. 

"It came from our own corner, and our defence wasn't good. It's very disappointing that we conceded that type of goal. 

"The timing of my goal was good, just a minute before half-time. But we are disappointed that we didn't win - we had some chances to score a second. But it's not been easy to play against Leicester this season. 

"We had to create more with the kind of space we had. We have to improve, definitely."

Can people please stop saying take a bow? It's not 2004 anymore.

Jamie Vardy, take a bow. #TheStreak.

Vardy reels off the cliches

Leicester forward Jamie Vardy on Sky Sports: "The main thing was the performance, we put a shift in and a point was the fair result. We have a lot of pace in the team and counter attacking is a big advantage for us. We have come straight from a corner. It's unbelievable, I got a bit carried away with myself! 

"There has been a lot of focus on me, I have kept my head down and not tried to think too much about it. I knew it would be a battle against Chris Smalling and it was an entertaining one for the neutrals.

"We are disappointed in the way we conceded the goal. We are taking each game as it comes and now look forward to Swansea next week."

MOTD host goes on the troll

Leicester 1-1 Man Utd

Massive point for Manchester United. Hanging on like that against Leicester shows how far they've come under Van Gaal.

Vardy is a 'top, top striker'

Leicester 1-1 Man Utd

Matt Elliott

Former Leicester City captain on BBC Radio Leicester

"The game will be remembered for one reason only - Jamie Vardy breaking Ruud van Nistelrooy's goalscoring record. 

"It was a tense, tight affair other than that - a cautious match. A point apiece was just about right. 

"Hats off again to Vardy - when his opportunity arose he took it with aplomb like the top, top striker he truly is."

Is this the real life?

Is this just fantasy?

Leicester, who started the day top of the Premier League, are behind leaders Manchester City on goal difference. Jamie Vardy is the league's top scorer on 14.

If this was happening on Football Manager you'd moan it was too unrealistic.

FULL-TIME - Leicester 1-1 Manchester United

Jamie Vardy waves at full-time

Leicester are second, Manchester United are third. 

But today's game will mostly be remembered for Jamie Vardy scoring in a record 11th consecutive Premier League game.


Leicester 1-1 Man Utd

Matteo Darmian reacts

Oh, Jamie Vardy thinks he's in here - he plays a one-two and charges towards goal from his own half but Chris Smalling does well to cover the angles and Vardy can't get through.

Then Matteo Darmian almost wins it for United but he fires over from the edge of the box after Jeff Schlupp's poor header.

Rooney goes off, UTD suddenly playing much better... Coincidence? Hmm #bbcfootball

#bbcfootball Is it time to look for a replacement for @WayneRooney this January window.Van Gaal can answer it best

Only a fool would pick Rooney over Vardy in the Euros. Of course Hodgson will go with Wayne. That's why we will fail. #bbcfootball

Leicester 1-1 Man Utd

Danny Drinkwater has a go from distance but it's over the crossbar. A couple of minutes left now.

Leicester 1-1 Man Utd

Free-kick to Leicester from deep. Danny Drinkwater's kick is hacked clear by Daley Blind.

Memphis Depay shoots

Matteo Darmian heads the ball through to Memphis Depay, who takes a touch and...

blazes his shot over the bar under pressure from Wes Morgan. The Dutchman seems to be limping now. Nobody takes on Big Wes and comes out better off for the experience.  

Leicester 1-1 Man Utd

The excitement of that Jamie Vardy goal seems a long time ago now. It's a bit haphazard, this game. 

Neither side looking particularly great. Leicester will be happy with this point.

As much as we love @WayneRooney it's gotta be @HKane and @vardy7 for @england for a few games #bbcfootball


Leicester 1-1 Man Utd

It's the final change for Leicester - Ritchie de Laet comes on for Danny Simpson. Both players are former Manchester United full-backs.

It's De Laet's 27th birthday today.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY RITCHIE.

Leicester 1-1 Man Utd

Juan Mata pulls down a cross but his shot is deflected wide for a corner from Robert Huth.

Ten minutes to go.

Leicester 1-1 Man Utd

If these are two of the best three teams in England, do people genuinely still think the Premier League is the best in the world? 

Or is it like one of those 'Andy Murray is Scottish when he loses' things where nobody actually seriously thinks it..
