After a frustrating first half for United, who had a Juan Mata strike ruled out for offside, they were denied again shortly after the break.
United face Stoke at the Bet365 Stadium after the global break.
However, this season they look the real deal and here are the reasons why their prospects appear much brighter.
Most of the talk after the match was about Dean's performance in the contest. The Ecuadorian has shown no signs of slowing down despite his age and remains as quick as ever, covering both ends of the pitch with relative ease over the course of 90 minutes. It was Sterling's second card of added time, which meant he was sent off for a second bookable offense. Out of the three teams, only Leicester probably possess quality attacking players of sufficient quality to worry top teams' defences.
City manager Pep Guardiola spoke after the game about the card in his press conference, and gave one memborable quote from many. "If you can not celebrate in the 90th minute with the fans, tell me the reason why".

The Spanish authorities say that eight suspected terrorists are dead, two are jailed and two more now remain under investigation. Six of them remain in critical condition.
French TV station SFR Sport (us neither...) claims that the United boss is eager to make a move but has been met with resistance by the club board who feels that the player is not worth such a fee. "There are one or two clubs up there, but none better".
Frank de Boer is still waiting for his first point - and goal - as Crystal Palace manager after a 2-0 loss at home to Swansea, who prevailed through goals from Chelsea loanee Tammy Abraham and Jordan Ayew. He scored 17 goals and chipped in with 11 assists.
United's defence seem to have built on the successes of last season, where they recorded the second lowest amount in terms of goals conceded in the Premier League with 29 compared to Tottenham Hotspur's 26. The result was open at 0-0 and it was obviously very hard. Slaven Bilic is in a lot of trouble, after a tough 2016-17 season. Martial scored as a sub for the second straight match.
If United keeps this winning momentum then no wonder, they'll lift their 21st Premier League title.
Manchester United are looking to sign an attacking midfielder before the closure of the summer transfer window and a few quality stars are linked.
This season, though, United's defensive unit has ramped it up as a whole. Mourinho has done a good making tactical adjustments during each game. Mourinho insists, because of what happened last season, that it means nothing, but this team has more of a swagger about it.
