Leicester vs Man UTD Betting Preview
Leicester had a slight wobble between November 22 and December 3 as they lost three of their four matches in all competitions. Anyway, Brendan Rodgers' men have returned to form with three wins from their past four Premier League games, including victory over Tottenham (2-0 in London) at the weekend. Their home form is far from being positive as they have won three and lost four of their seven top-flight fixtures at the King Power Stadium.
Man Utd enter this clash on the back of a 6-2 hammering of Leeds United and an impressive 2-0 win at Everton in the EFL Cup on Wednesday night. The Red Devils have won six of seven unbeaten league games heading into this fixture, only failing to extract maximum points against Man City. Stretching back to last season, United have now won each of their last 10 top-flight fixtures on the road. The defence remains a concern however as United have kept just three clean sheets from 13 games this season. Despite that, The Red Devils are only five points behind leaders Liverpool and have recently been mentioned as possible title contenders.
As to direct encounters, Leicester have lost each of their last four Premier League matches with the Red Devils. The last time these sides met, it was a straight shootout for the Champions League on the final day of last season. Then, Man Utd emerged 2-0 winners at the King Power Stadium.
Man UTD are 13/10 favorite with William Hill to get all three points here. The home win is backable at 21/10 with Unibet while the best price for the draw is 14/5 with 10bet.
Anyway, 888sport are offering 15/1 for Leicester to win and 11/1 for Man UTD to win.
Leicester City (3-4-3): Schmeichel; Fofana, Evans, Fuchs; Albrighton, Ndidi, Tielemans, Justin; Barnes, Vardy, Maddison
The hosts will again be without the services of Ricardo Pereira through injury, while the match is also expected to come too soon for central defender Caglar Soyuncu. Timothy Castagne's return is massive news for Leicester but the former Atalanta player is unlikely to start for the Foxes on Boxing Day. As a result, Marc Albrighton and James Justin will play as wing backs in a 3-4-3 starting sytem, with Ashley Barnes and James Maddison supporting Jamie vardy upfront.
Manchester UTD (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; McTominay, Fred; Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford; Martial
Bruno Fernandes played the full 90 minutes in midweek but is expected to feature from the off here, despite the hectic schedule. Elsewhere, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial did not appear at Goodison Park until the 67th minute, suggesting they should occupy the left-wing and centre-forward roles on Saturday. Scott McTominay and Aaron Wan-Bissaka missed the Carabao Cup quarter-final on Wednesday and are major doubts for Boxing Day. Marcs Rojo remains the only sidelined player for the Red Devils.
Our Leicester vs Man UTD PredictionsMan Utd have won 10 away games on the trot now while the Foxes have lost more games (4) than they have won (3) at home. United will be searching for yet another away victory and we are backing them to get maximum points at the King Power. As to the scoreline, there should be goals and both teams are likely to find the back of the net.
