Schweinsteiger: "It’s not a very good point."

Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger has lamented his side's result against Leicester City on Saturday, saying that the one point gotten was not good.

The Red Devils failed in their chance to go top by playing a 1-1 draw with Claudio Ranieri's men.

Leicester striker Jamie Vardy scored the first goal to become the first player in the Premier League to score in eleven consecutive games. He broke the record held by former Man United striker Ruud van Nistelrooy - who scored in ten consecutive games.

Schweinsteiger equalised just before half-time, as he became the first German to score a goal for United.

"It’s not a very good point," the Schweinsteiger told MUTV, reports. "If you see the game and how much space we had with the ball, we have to create more chances and danger and we didn’t do it so well. We come here as Manchester United and, if you want to win something, then you have to win the game.

"We tried [to win] but Leicester dropped in a lot and played with 11 players in their own half and it’s never easy to play with this kind of tactics from the opponent. We should try and create more, I believe in it, but we have to improve. We have to live with that and move on.

"Against Watford, it [the own goal by Troy Deeney] was a very important goal, as it was the last minute and it meant three points. Today, one minute before half-time changes everything and makes things a little easier with it being 1-1. So, I am happy with the goal, but I would be more happy if I had taken the second chance I had in the second half.

"It’s a pity we conceded the goal like this, from a counter-attack," he added. "When you are a top team it shouldn’t happen like that. We knew he [Vardy] was capable of making a goal like that, so it is a pity that we conceded that goal."
