Bastian Schweinsteiger makes Man United admission after Leicester draw
Bastian Schweisnteiger admits Manchester United have to definitely improve
Bastian Schweinsteiger admitted Manchester United definitely have to improve after Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Leicester City.
The Red Devils fell behind in the first half after Jamie Vardy scored in his 11th successive Premier League game following a sweeping counter-attacking move by the home side.
However, Louis van Gaal’s side levelled on the stroke of half-time after Schweinsteiger powered a header past Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.
United couldn’t find a winner and David De Gea had to produce a smart save to deny Leicester substitute Leonardo Ulloa in the final 30 minutes.
Speaking to BBC Sport after their stalemate, former Bayern Munich midfielder Schweinsteiger accepted that there was plenty of room for improvement.
“The timing of my goal was good, just a minute before half-time,” Schweinsteiger told BBC Sport.
“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.”
The Red Devils are a point behind joint leaders Manchester City and Leicester following Saturday’s stalemate.
Van Gaal’s side are unbeaten in their last six Premier League games since a 3-0 loss to Arsenal in October.
