Leicester City's title party has been put on hold following today's 1-1 draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford. Here is how the players rated.


DAVID DE GEA: Could do nothing about the goal and dealt comfortably enough with everything else Leicester threw at him - 6 (out of 10)

ANTONIO VALENCIA: Crossed for Martial's goal and was a threat down the right - 6

CHRIS SMALLING: Has looked commanding this season and did again here. Hit the post with a header - 7

DALEY BLIND: Helped restrict Leonardo Ulloa and Shinji Okazaki to half chances - 7

MARCOS ROJO: Not the full-back's best game. Beaten by Wes Morgan for Leicester's goal and lucky not to concede a penalty - 5

MICHAEL CARRICK: Did his job well enough in front of the back four - 6

MAROUANE FELLAINI: A nuisance to the Leicester defence but lucky to get away with an elbow on Robert Huth - 5

WAYNE ROONEY: Grew in influence as the game went on in a midfield role that is beginning to look like his best. His passing was superb - 8

JESSE LINGARD: Saw a shot very well saved by Kasper Schmeichel but gave the ball away too readily - 5

ANTHONY MARTIAL: Once again took his goal brilliantly and looked a threat - 7

MARCUS RASHFORD: One of the teenager's quieter performances but worked hard and always wanted the ball - 6


JUAN MATA (for Lingard, 62): Combined well with Rooney in midfield and United were better once he came on - 6

ANDER HERRERA (for Fellaini, 75): Did not have much of an impact - 5

MEMPHIS DEPAY (for Rashford, 82): His run tempted Danny Drinkwater into the foul that earned him a second yellow card - 5

Wes Morgan's equaliser earned Leicester a point


KASPER SCHMEICHEL: His brilliant save from Jesse Lingard came at a crucial moment - 7

DANNY SIMPSON: Might have seen red after giving the ball away to Lingard and then appearing to haul him back. Got forward well - 6

ROBERT HUTH: Has had a superb season and not much got past the big German here - 7

WES MORGAN: Showed great desire to head in Drinkwater's cross and might have had at least one more - 7

CHRISTIAN FUCHS: A difficult opening but recovered well to stem the threat of United down the right - 6

N'GOLO KANTE: Another strong showing from one of the Premier League's men of the season - 7

DANNY DRINKWATER: His delivery from free-kicks caused caused no end of problems for United but his afternoon ended early when he pulled back Memphis and was shown a second yellow card - 6

JEFFREY SCHLUPP: A lively presence and almost caught out De Gea with a cross - 6

RIYAD MAHREZ: Flitted in an out of the game but had some bright moments and might have won a penalty - 6

SHINJI OKAZAKI: Worked hard. Headed his best chance over the bar early on - 6

LEONARDO ULLOA: Held the ball up well but could not take advantage of the half chances that came his way - 6


DEMARAI GRAY (for Okazaki, 67): Did not make much of an impact - 5

MARC ALBRIGHTON (for Schlupp, 77): Had one run down the right but came on as United began to dominate - 5
