Leicester v Man Utd Prediction - Preview
Leicester City FC
Leicester City is now seated 13th at the table in the Premier League. They settled for a draw against Crystal Palace 2-2 after leading them at the half at Selhurst Park. Kelechi Iheanacho struck first on 31 minutes with his slot into the bottom left corner. Just six minutes later, Jamie Vardy caught Harvey Barnes pass and finishes into the near post. However, the Eagles levelled as Michael Olise and Jeffrey Schlupp found the back of the net within 11 minutes of each other. Manager Brendan Rodgers was frustrated with the draw, as his men didn’t defend well enough down the stretch to keep their lead. They now take on the task of facing a Man Utd squad, whose players have been successful in their international duties during the break.
- Leicester can win consecutive Premier League matches against Man Utd for the first time, after beating them 2-1 at Old Trafford in May.
- Jamie Vardy has scored in each of his last three Premier League appearances. If he scores in this match, he will be the second oldest to score in four consecutive matches behind Gary McAllister in May 2001 for Liverpool.
Manchester United FC
Manchester United are currently at fourth in the table, nine places ahead of Leicester. Upon the heralded return of Cristiano Ronaldo, the Red Devils have had mixed results in their outings, with the latest being a 1-1 draw with Everton at Old Trafford. Man Utd took the lead two minutes before the half, as Mason Greenwood started a run passing to Bruno Fernandes, who then plays it out to Anthony Martial who cuts inside and strikes into the top corner, helped by Jordan Pickford’s deflection. The euphoria at the Theatre of Dreams was short-lived, however, with Andros Townsend equalising early in the second half. Neither side could break away afterwards, and manager Ole Gunnar Solksjær and his men had to settle for a point in the table. Could they finally assert their dominance against a struggling Leicester squad in their next fixture?
- Man Utd are looking to extend their record unbeaten away run in the league to 30 matches (W19 D10).
- Jesse Lingard has been involved in 6 goals in his last 6 EPL appearances against Leicester (3 goals, 3 assists). Against no side has he been involved in more goals in the competition (also 6 against Arsenal).

Leicester v Man Utd Prediction - Final Thoughts
After some so-so performances, Leicester are in need of a big win. They however face a Man Utd squad that is brimming with talent. The absence of Raphael Varane and Harry Maguire, however, could impact the United. But with Ronaldo, Fernandes and the Nations League-winning French Red Devils making an impact during the break, the momentum will likely carry over into this game, giving them the win over the Foxes. With that, let’s take a look at our predictions.
