Leicester City came from 3-1 down to secure a stunning 5-3 victory over Manchester United at the King Power Stadium.

United surged into an early 2-0 lead inside 16 minutes as Robin van Persie and Angel di Maria found the back of the net before Leonardo Ulloa’s header reduced the deficit.

Ander Herrera restored United’s two-goal cushion before David Nugent, Esteban Cambiasso, James Vardy and Ulloa all scored in the final 28 minutes, with help from referee Mark Clattenburg.
