Leicester vs Man UTD Betting Preview
Leicester haven't won a league game since August as they have collected just two draw from their last four top flight outings - suffering defeats against Manchester City (0-1 at home) and Brighton (2-1 away). The Foxes have drawn their last two Premier League games - 2:2 against both Burnley and Crystal Palace - and currently sit 13th in the table with 8 points in 7 matches. Brendan Rodgers's men are struggling at the back - they have conceded 12 goals so far. Only Leeds and the bottom two teams have shipped more goals.
Man UTD's fast start to the new season hit the buffers before the international break as they suffered two home defeats against West Ham (0-1) in the EFL Cup and Aston Villa (0-1) in the Premier League. They bounced back in Champions League with a pivotal 2-1 win over Villarreal (they lost to Young Boys the opening UCL match) but managed to earn just a draw against Everton (1-1) at Old Trafford. as to direct encounters, the Red Devils haven't won any of the last three meetings between these sides and their performance in the FA Cup clash at the King Power Stadium last year was arguably one of their worst of the entire season.
Anyway, 888sport are offering 22/1 for Leicester to win and 9/1 for Man UTD to win.
Leicester City (4-4-2): Schmeichel; Pereira, Evans, Soyuncu, Bertrand; Lookman, Soumare, Tielemans, Barnes; Vardy, Iheanacho
Wilfred Ndidi and James Justin remain out while Jannik Vestergaard is a fresh doubt with a knock. Wesley Fofana remains a long-term absentee. Jonny Evans is expected to join Caglar Soyunçu at the heart of the back, while Ricardo Pereira should get nod over Timothy Castagne as right back. Boubakary Soumare is a strong contender to oust Hamza Choudhury in midfield, with Demola Lookman and Harvey Barnes expected to start out wide in a 4-4-2 starting system. Up front, Kelechi Iheanacho should partner Jamie Vardy.
Manchester United (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Bailly, Lindelof, Shaw; McTominay, Pogba; Greenwood, Fernandes, Sancho; Ronaldo
Raphael Varane is facing a spell on the sidelines with a groin injury that he sustained while away with France. With harry Maguire still recovering form a calf-injury, Eric Bailly and Viktor Lindelof will start as centre backs. Fred and Edinson Cavani will also miss the game since they were involved in Brazil vs Uruguay in the early hours of Friday morning. Up front, Marcus Rashford is back in contention after recovering from a shoulder injury and he should make his first appearance of the season but the likes of Mason Greenwood, Jadon Sancho and Bruno Fernandes are expected to start in the offensive midfield trio behind the striker Cristiano Ronaldo.
Our Leicester vs Man UTD Predictions
Leicester currently look well short of a side capable of claiming a Champions League spot while Manchester United have been arguably the most inconsistent team from week to week in the Premier League far. The Foxes have won the last two meetings against Man UTD so we expect Brendan Rodgers' men to get at least a draw. The 2-2 Correct Score and the "Both teams to score" are further picks from our experts' as well as Cristiano Ronaldo to score first (offered at a whopping price by 888sport!)
