Bastian Schweinsteiger was Manchester United’s standout player in Saturday evening’s 1-1 draw with Leicester City.

The Red Devils midfielder scored an equaliser on the stroke of half-time to cancel out Jamie Vardy’s opener at King Power Stadium.

Schweinsteiger managed to shrug of the attentions of his marker and power a header past Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.

The Germany international’s equaliser was his first goal for United and in the Premier League after his £6.7m move from Bayern Munich in the summer.

However, Squawka’s tweet highlights Schweinsteiger’s influence on the stalemate with the Foxes.

The 31-year-old midfielder has played in all 14 of United’s Premier League games this season following his summer move from Bayern Munich.

The Red Devils star has also racked up five appearances in the Champions League.

Schweinsteiger previously played under United manager Louis van Gaal at Bayern.

United are a point behind joint leaders Manchester City and Leicester City.
