Leicester City vs Manchester United Betting Tips & Predictions
Reason for Leicester City vs Manchester United Predictions
Leicester City is second in the Premier League and hosts Manchester United, who are third and will go above them if winning this game. Like their opponents, City has shown good form on their travels while struggling at home. The past week, that’s been illustrated with a home loss to Everton followed by an away win at Tottenham. Leicester has won three home league games but been beaten in four with no draws. Three of the last five at the King Power Stadium have been lost. The Foxes have scored only nine home league goals in seven games. That stat looks even worse when you consider seven of them came in wins against Burnley and Brighton. Just two in the other five and Jamie Vardy has only scored one goal from open play in their home Premier League fixtures. It’s not just upfront that there have been struggles at home. Harvey Barnes plays excellently, he is fast in the one-on-one game, and he is unstoppable. Brendan Rodgers has confidence in this guy who is the future of English football. Cengiz Under is a guy who causes many problems to the opponent on the right side. He has speed and is great in a one-on-one game.
Manchester United bid to make it 11 straight away wins in the Premier League. That run already includes a win at Leicester last season in the game that clinched them their Champions League place. United hasn’t just been winning away league matches but scoring plenty of goals too. The last six have seen them score at least three goals. They’ve managed to score at least twice in each of the ten. If only they could stop conceding the first goal on their Premier League travels. Home form has been a problem, but the weekend saw them beat Leeds United 6-2. If they can continue this good run of form, a title challenge is definitely one. They only trail Liverpool by five points and have a game in hand on them. Scott McTominay has excellent control of the ball, he can play in several positions, and every team needs a player like this. Marcus Rashford is the engine of this team, he goes through the opponent’s defense like a fast train, has excellent ball control, and the English international can be satisfied with his performance.
It will be a big battle between these two teams, and it will not be surprising if the match ends in a draw. We can also expect a goal in both nets, and neither side should keep the clean sheet.
