Watch Schmeichel make 'save of the season' to deny Marcus Rashford in Leicester's 2-2 draw against Man Utd

KASPER SCHMEICHEL denied Marcus Rashford with what pundit Robbie Savage branded the 'save of the season' in the 2-2 draw between Leicester and Manchester United.

With the score at 1-1 in the 60th minute, Rashford was put away by midfielder Fred and ran in on goal with only the Danish shot-stopper to beat.

Rashford let a rocket fly off his right foot but Schmeichel stood firm and parried the effort forward and wide.

BT Sport's Savage audibly gasped and lauded the stop as the 'save of the season'.

He said: "What a save that is. Incredible save."

Presenter Jake Humphrey remarked: "That's breaking my wrists."

On commentary, summariser Glenn Hoddle said: "What a save. What a hand that is. Fabulous strong hand."

The England forward had opened the scoring for the Red Devils with Schmeichel unable to prevent his 23rd minute effort.

However, the son of legendary United keeper Peter Schmeichel was more than a match for this second-half strike.

Leicester rescued a late point as Jamie Vardy's shot deflected off Axel Tuanzebe and the United defender was handed the unwanted late Christmas present of an own goal to his name.

Harvey Barnes' thumping strike had made it 1-1 at half-time after Rashford's 50th Premier League goal broke the deadlock.

Bruno Fernandes thought he had won the game for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side with just over ten minutes to go.

But Brendan Rodgers' men salvaged a point five minutes from time to stay second, one point and one place above United in the Premier League.
