Stats show Bastian Schweinsteiger was Man United’s best player at Leicester
Bastian Schweinsteiger scored Manchester United's equaliser in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Leicester City
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 Red Devils star has also racked up five appearances in the Champions League.
Schweinsteiger previously played under United manager Louis van Gaal at Bayern.
