Leicester City vs Manchester United Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Leicester City were able to come up with a brilliant performance to snatch a 1-1 draw against Liverpool at Anfield. Even though the Reds took the lead after just three minutes through Sadio Mane’s brilliantly worked goal, the Foxes were able to come back strongly and had the better chances throughout the match. Leicester’s equaliser came through Harry Maguire just before half time. Manchester United lost the perfect record under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after a 2-2 draw. Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood came up with second-half goals to put Burnley on the verge of a first victory at Old Trafford in more than 50 years, but Solskjaer’s men refused to die with late goals from Paul Pogba (penalty) and Victor Lindelof.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Manchester United have picked up five wins in the last six matches against Leicester City. The only time in which United have been unable to win against the Foxes was at the King Power Stadium, which has been the scene of some big scalps of late. Manchester United have an incredible amount of confidence coming into the match and this may help them get a slender victory. I would pick a Manchester United win.

However, it is fair to expect goals from the home team since Leicester are quite strong on the counter. The confidence levels from United in terms of going forward have been quite brilliant of late. The Red Devils have scored 14 goals in the last six matches – almost twice the figure managed by Leicester. I would back over 2.5 goals in the game.

Leicester City Preview

Claude Puel has masterminded a couple of brilliant results in the last few months. The wins over Manchester City and Chelsea are certainly not one-offs, as the Foxes have had a trick up their sleeve when it comes to getting results against bigger teams. Even though Jamie Vardy has not been very effective in terms of scoring goals under Claude Puel, the English international has been able to get the work done without any complaints of late. The Foxes need to focus on getting a string of victories in order to make the team the contender a European qualification position.

Leicester City Team News

Daniel Amartey (broken ankle) is the only player unavailable for Leicester.

Manchester United Preview

Manchester United have been quite brilliant under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. If the perfect record in the first eight matches for the Norwegian was quite impressive, the manner of the comeback against Burnley in the midweek action was even better. Solskjaer is making a very strong case for being appointed as the permanent manager, which is sought after in the world of football. United may have been deflected by a home defeat against Burnley, but it was extremely important that the team found a way through – especially with games against PSG, Chelsea, and Liverpool not too far away.

Manchester United Team News

Manchester United are without Marouane Fellaini (calf) and Anthony Martial due to injuries.
