Leicester City vs Manchester United

Leicester City returns to their King Power Stadium this Sunday where they welcome Manchester United for matchday 25 in the Premier League. Claude Puel had been in danger of losing his job, but he may have saved himself when his side held the league leaders, Liverpool, to a 1-1 draw at Anfield. Ole Gunnar Solskjær remains unbeaten as his time as manager of Manchester United but lost in perfect winning streak when his side drew to an impressive Burnley outfit. The hosts narrowly lost out to their opponents when they met at Old Trafford losing 2-1.

Leicester City’s consistency has been a problem for them this season as they have shown they have the quality to compete with the best of sides with their last three wins coming against Everton, Chelsea and Manchester City. But, amongst those impressive wins, they have suffered defeats to Southampton, Cardiff and Newport County. Their previous fixture saw them pick up an important point against Liverpool in a 1-1 draw thanks to Harry Maguire’s equalizer. As expected, the Foxes are clear underdogs in this clash with odds of 13/5 with SkyBet.

The Foxes have not been the most dangerous side on the attack this season with just 30 goals scored, but their tough defence which has conceded just 30 goals has been their strength. Leicester have won just one of their last five games, picking up three losses and one draw along the way also. In all four of their last four games, they have both scored and conceded goals and Bet365 have BTTS at 7/10. Jamie Vardy finds himself on a goal drought for Leicester but remains their top goalscorer with seven goals. Betway has him to score anytime priced at 13/8.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær was unable to secure his ninth consecutive win as the manager of Manchester United against Burnley midweek but managed to extend his unbeaten record to nine games. United found themselves 2-0 down in the 87th minute but goals from Paul Pogba and Victor Lindelof saw them draw level in the dying moments. This draw saw them fall two points behind Chelsea and Arsenal in the table. United beat Leicester City 2-1 in their first meeting and SkyBet has a repeat result priced at 15/2. Or, SkyBet is offering odds of 19/20 for Manchester United to win.

The Red Devils recent success has come from their ability to outscore their opponents, with their attacking style of play that Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s has implemented. This style of play has led to them being involved in games with multiple goals being scored and in their last three fixtures over 2.5 goals have been scored. Bet365 has over 2.5 goals to be scored priced at 4/5. Marcus Rashford is one player that has flourished under Solskjær with him bagging five goals in his last seven. Betway has the forward to score anytime at 6/4.
