"We dominated Manchester United" - Luke Thomas reacts to United's win over Leicester City

Manchester United narrowly beat Leicester City at King Power and Luke Thomas claims that he and his team-mates agreed that the defeat was a tough one to take.

Man United maintained their consistency following their tight 1-0 Premier League win over Leicester, having won their last two games against Liverpool and Southampton before Thursday’s win.

The defeat to the Red Devils means that Leicester City are still searching for their first win this season, having played five league matches.

Thomas believes the Foxes dominated Manchester United and as a result, the 20th-placed side deserves to get something off the Red Devils, a goal would have justified their resilience.

Speaking after the game, the Leicester City academy graduate told LCFC TV: “We just spoke in the changing room and we’ve said that this is a tough one to take tonight.

“Obviously, we had the mentality, and as you can see in the second half, we dominated really and maybe should have got a goal or something out of the game.

“In the final third, at the moment, we’re just lacking that bit of quality to get the goal. We know that’ll come and soon, hopefully, we can fly back up that table.

“We feel like we’ve had good starts to games throughout the five games we’ve had so far. Obviously, that goal, I think it’s a bit of a soft goal to concede. We were very open and then they’ve punished us there. That’s tough to come back from, conceding that goal, when we were dominating the game.”

Manchester United will look to maintain their momentum when they host Premier League leaders Arsenal at Old Trafford on Sunday.

A win over the Gunners would see Man United move as high as 3rd place with 12 points but that entirely depends on the results of Tottenham and Brighton & Hove Albion.

The last time both league giants met at the Theatre of Dreams, Manchester United sealed a tight 3-2 win over Arsenal under Michael Carrick’s watch.
