Leicester vs Manchester UTD Betting Preview 

Leicester recorded a 5-0 win over bottom club Sheffield UTD last weekend, and are flying high in the Premier League. The Foxes currently sit third in the table, just a single point below second placed Man UTD. In the FA Cup thay have beaten Brighton in the last round, and Championship opposition in Stoke City and Brentford earlier this season. They did recently crash out of Europe with a two-legged defeat against Slavia Prague. The Foxes are winless in their last 13 meetings with Man UTD across all competitions since their famous 5-3 triumph in September 2014 and have lost 19 of the last 25 direct encounters.

Man UTD have reached the Europa League quarter finals courtesy of their 1-0 win over AC Milan at San Siro on Thursday (the first leg ended 1-1 at Old Trafford). Prior to that, they recorded a narrow win at home against West Ham and a surhprising 2-0 win in the Manchester Derby and the Eithad Stadium. They are unbeaten since late January and have sit 2nd in the Premier League standings. It has not been an easy route to the FA Cup last-8 stage for the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men, seeing off Watford, Liverpool and West Ham - the latter via extra time - to make it into the quarter-finals. The Red Devils have generally been solid on the road this season and are unbeaten on their last six trips to the King Power Stadium.

Probable Line-Ups

Leicester (3-4-1-2): Schmeichel; Fofana, Evans, Soyuncu; Castagne, Ndidi, Tielemans, Thomas; Perez; Iheanacho, Vardy

With five goals in three games, former Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho is the in-form man and will start in attack alongside Jamie Vardy. Brendan Rodger is expected to play with a three man backline (Wesley Fofana, Caglar Soyuncu and Jonny Evans), while Luke Thomas and Timothy Castagne are likely to start as wing backs. Ricardo Pereira is out after picking up a hamstring injury last weekend. The likes of Harvey Barnes, Cengiz Under, James Justin and James Maddison also are all definitely out. Anyway, Dennis Praet could make the squad after two months out and Sidnei Tavares should be available again.

Manchester UTD (4-2-3-1): Henderson; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Telles; Fred, Matic; James, Fernandes, Pogba; Greenwood

Marcus Rashford is a major doubt after he was taken off at half time in Milan on Thursday night. His potential absence could leave Solsjkaer short in attack, with Anthony Martial and Edinson Cavani likely to miss the match due to physical issues. Eric Bailly and Juan Mata are the other absentees  , while Phil Jones remains injured. Paul Pogba is not 100% fit but should start the game after a match-winning performance in Europa League. Donny van de Beek returned to the matchday squad on Thursday but isn't expected to start here.  Up front, Mason Greenwod should play as central striker, with Dan James and Bruno Fernandes behind him.

The sides have already met once in 2020/21, when we played out a 2-2 draw on Boxing Day at the King Power Stadium. It should be another tight affair, and we are backing the draw. As to the scoreline, 1-1 could be correct one.
