James Maddison and Harvey Barnes scored in Saturday's 2-0 home win over Southampton.
It was a result that moved Brendan Rodgers' team up to second place in the table, just one point behind United.
While he did not get on the scoresheet, it was Leicester's Youri Tielemans who was the star of the show.
