Leicester City: Tielemans dominates against Man Utd

Leicester City created yet more modern-day history at the weekend by overcoming Manchester United to secure a first FA Cup semi-final appearance since 1982.

Kelechi Iheanacho was the star of the show once again for the Foxes, getting on the scoresheet twice and continuing his stunning recent run of form.

Youri Tielemans also turned in a majestic showing for the home side, with his control of the ball and authority in midfield allowing the hosts to dominate an under-par Red Devils side.

The Belgian was an ever-present throughout the game for Leicester, having 76 touches of the ball according to WhoScored. Only centre-backs Jonny Evans and Caglar Soyuncu received the ball more than the former AS Monaco midfielder.

The Belgian was also only beaten in terms of successful passes played by the Foxes centre-back pairing, with Tielemans completing 60 passes at an 88.3% success rate. It goes to show how dominant he really was considering that United duo Paul Pogba and Donny van de Beek could only accumulate 55 passes between them throughout the game.

On the topic of the Red Devils’ midfield, Tielemans continued to stomp all over them throughout the 90 minutes with a particularly gutsy and determined showing. The £49.5m-rated midfielder produced three tackles, two interceptions and a clearance as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men were kept at arm’s length.

It was in the attacking sense that the 23-year-old really thrived though. He had four shots throughout the game, even more than two-goal hero Iheanacho, and as a matter of fact, every single player on the pitch.

One of those shots was golden too as Tielemans topped a hugely impressive performance with a well-taken goal – finding the bottom corner from range after a clever one-two with Iheanacho.

He will surely be satisfied with his evening’s work as Leicester took another stride towards history.
