Leicester vs Manchester United Predictions and Betting Tips
Club football returns this weekend and what better way to kick it off with a titanic clash in the Premier League as Leicester and Man United lock horns. Read on for our expert tips and predictions.
Leicester City picked up four points off the Mancunians in the league last season as well as beating them in the English FA Cup en route to cup glory. How would the side from Manchester respond ?
Both sides struggling for form
Leicester City's dip in form is slightly more pronounced compared to that of their opponents with the Foxes picking up just one win in their last seven games in all competitions. They last won a league game back in Matchday 3 when they beat Norwich City 2-1 but have managed just two points from a possible 12 since then. Goals haven't been hard to come by for Brendan Rodgers' side as they've only failed to score in one of their seven games so far. However, their defence seems to be leaky with the Foxes keeping just one clean sheet since the start of the 2021/2022 season. Last time out, they failed to hold on to a two-goal lead at Selhurst Park as Crystal Palace fought back to draw level and secure a point for themselves.
Given the talent embedded in this Manchester United squad, they have been performing way below expectations which have brought head coach Ole-Gunnar Solskjaer under immense pressure. Although they started the season brilliantly, they have managed just two wins in their last six games in all competitions and with the calibre of opponents they would have to face over the coming weeks, the intensity would need to be elevated. Amidst their struggle for form, they're only two points off the summit in 4th position and they could've been joint-top if only they had picked up maximum points at home against Everton last time out. Ironically, the Mancunians have been much better on their travels winning two of their three away league games to date.
