Manchester United v Leicester City Predictions, Betting Tips and Previews
September 11, 2019
Old Trafford - Premier League
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Manchester Untied face a tough trip to face in form Leicester City at the King Power Stadium this weekend.
United won home and away against Leicester City in 2018-19, and they have won their last three home games against the Foxes, and are unbeaten in their last 11 games against the East Midlands side.
Solskjaer will be hopeful that a number of first team players can make a return from injury, with Diogo Dalot, Anthony Martial, Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard all facing late fitness tests. However the Norwegian boss will be without Eric Bailly, Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka - meaning a big defensive reshuffle will be needed.
Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers will make a late decision on the fitness of club captain Wes Morgan - but other than that, he has a fully fit squad to chose from.
Manchester United v Leicester City Preview and Predictions
United have endured an inconsistent start to the season, with just one Premier League win from their first four games - on the opening day of the campaign at home to Chelsea. They have since drawn at Wolves and Southampton, and suffered a shock 2-1 defeat at home to Roy Hodgson's Crystal Palace on the second weekend of the 2019-20 campaign.
Leicester, on the other hand, have enjoyed a very strong start to the season - as they look to continue their growing case for European qualification at the end of the season. Unbeaten in both Premier League and EFL Cup action so far in 2019-20, with good wins over rivals Sheffield United and Bournemouth means they head to Old Trafford full of confidence.
United look far from themselves so far this season, and Leicester will look to exploit that this weekend. An away win may be a little bit of a stretch, but a draw comes in at 11/4. The Foxes have been solid rather than spectacular in recent weeks, with three goals in their two away games in league action - and this one looks set to follow suit, with an under 2.5 total goals scored bet available at 10/11.
A 1-1 draw at 13/2
United may well have earmarked this game as a potential three points at the start of the season, but given their poor start and Leicester's counterattacking style, this one looks set for a draw.
Jamie Vardy to score anytime at 6/4
Vardy has been in razor sharp form so far this season, with three goals in his last two Premier League appearances for Rodgers' side and he will fancy his chances against a patched up United defence. He also has two goals in his last three games against United, ahead of this weekend.
