Leicester were seeking a first win of the season but struggled to trouble Manchester United. The closest they came was through James Maddison’s free-kick that was saved by David De Gea.
It is now one point from five matches for Brendan Rodgers’ side, who remain bottom and will hope for a change of fortunes on Sunday at Brighton & Hove Albion.
The win sends Manchester Utd to fifth and they will aim to continue their run and be the first side to take points off Arsenal this season when they face each other this Sunday at Old Trafford.
After the match Manchester United coach Erik ten Hag said,””Again good team spirit, we had 11 players on the pitch who fight for each other.
I’m happy with the clean sheet. When our 11 are on the pitch, we defend together and attack together”
