BETTING PREVIEW: LEICESTER CITY vs MANCHESTER UNITED

Premier League Betting Preview

Manchester United will be hoping to find their rhythm in the Premier League when they make the journey to the King Power Stadium to face Leicester City on Saturday.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are winless in their last four matches across all competitions and are winless in their last two league games.

The Red Devils sit fourth in the Premier League table, just two points off leaders Chelsea with 14 points, following our 1-1 draw with Everton before the international break.

BET ON THE PREMIER LEAGUE

Meanwhile, Brendan Rodgers’ men are winless in their last three games in all competitions and that stretches to four in the league. In all, Leicester have accumulated just two wins from their opening seven matches.

That leaves the Foxes in 13th with eight points after playing out to a thrilling 2-2 draw with Crystal Place in their last outing.

Leicester and Man Utd met on three occasions last year, with the first match ending in a 2-2 draw, the second was in the FA Cup at the same venue when the Foxes eliminated the Red Devils 3-1 before Leicester claimed a 2-1 win at Old Trafford in the previous game between the two sides.

United will have to step up a gear and solidify their shaky defence with such imbalance on the pitch, while Leicester will need to rethink their strategy to walk away with all three points against a star-studded United side.

The biggest talking point for United will not be at the top of the pitch but rather at the back where Raphael Varane and Harry Maguire remain sidelined.

Key Players:

Leicester City: Jamie Vardy

Despite Leicester’s form this season, Vardy has been the one constant and will be keen to keep the makeshift United defence on their toes. The Englishman has netted six goals in his last seven Premier League games, and four goals in three. Watch out.

Manchester United: Bruno Fernandes

Although Fernandes has been overshadowed by the presence of Cristiano Ronaldo in the squad that has not stopped the Portuguese star from bossing the midfielder for United. Fernandes has already scored four goals and created one assist in seven games and he will be at the epicentre of United’s onslaught on attack.
