The Red Devils surged into an early 2-0 lead thanks to goals from Robin van Persie and Angel di Maria before Leonardo Ulloa halved the deficit in the 17th minute.

Liverpool striker Balotelli, who played his part in Raheem Sterling’s consolation goal at Upton Park, couldn’t hide his delight with Leicester’s win on Twitter.
