United falls to defeat against EPL new boys

MANCHESTER United manager Louis van Gaal said his team had only itself to blame after twice conceding a two-goal lead to lose to English Premiership new boys Leicester City 5-3 at King Power Stadium.

It was the first time United had lost a Premier League game after having a two-goal lead.

The Red Devils were 2-0 and 3-1 in front.

But Leicester hit back through a David Nugent penalty and Esteban Cambiasso equalised before Jamie Vardy and a Leonardo Ulloa penalty sealed the win.

"We had the game in our pocket and we gave it away," van Gaal (pictured) said.

In the big game of the day, Frank Lampard came back to haunt Chelsea with a late equaliser to secure Manchester City a 1-1 draw with the Blues.

There were also shock defeats for Everton, which went down 3-2 at home to Crystal Palace, while West Brom climbed off the bottom with a 1-0 win at Tottenham.
