We expect Man Utd to win 2-1 at 9.00 with bet365
Both teams were knocked out of the Carabao Cup in midweek, United losing in injury time to Bristol City on Wednesday after Leicester were beaten on penalties by Manchester City the night before.
As City (albeit with a weakened XI) found out, the King Power is a tough stadium to visit and this will be a game that United will need to be at their best if they want to win.
The Foxes had been in good form until last week’s shock 3-0 home defeat to Crystal Palace, but they will be motivated for the visit of the Red Devils and as always will take the game to them.
However, Jose Mourinho will want a response from his players and normally after a bad result, he gets one. Many fans have already accepted that the league may already be gone, but they won’t want to drop any more points still.
With the home side having played 120 minutes in midweek, their could be some fatigue which the likes of the returning Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and David de Gea won’t be suffering from.
Lukaku has responded well following criticism after the Manchester derby with goals in his following two matches, and he is our tip to score first here at 4.60 with Unibet.
As for the correct score, it will be a tight match but we are predicting a 2-1 United win at 9.00 with bet365.
Manchester United face Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Saturday night. Jose Mourinho’s men will want to put Wednesday’s embarrassing loss to Bristol City behind them with three points against the Foxes.
United’s season seems to be following a pattern of mainly good form, mixed in with the odd disastrous result – the latest being a Carabao Cup quarter-final loss to Championship side Bristol City on Wednesday. They had won their two league matches prior to that after defeat in the Manchester derby.
Manchester United Form: LWWLWW
New manager Claude Puel had made the dream start to life in charge at the King Power stadium before last week’s 3-0 loss to Crystal Palace. They were unlucky to lose on penalties to Manchester City in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday, and will want to bounce back against United.
Leicester City Form: LLWWWW
Manchester United and Leicester City have met 125 times previously, with United having won 64 to Leicester City’s 33. The other 28 matches ended in draws. Their last meeting came at Old Trafford back in August, where the Red Devils were 2-0 winners.
Jose Mourinho is without midfield pair Marouane Fellaini and Michael Carrick, as well as long term absentee Eric Bailly. Leicester on the other hand are missing Robert Huth and former United midfielder Matty James.
