Manchester United vs Leicester City: Preview and Prediction
Manchester United vs Leicester City
English Premier League.
Date: Saturday, 24 September, 2016,
Venue: Old Trafford, Manchester.
Manchester United will host the current Champions Leicester City at Old Trafford as The Red Devils hope to turn back to winning ways in the Premier League.
The Red Devils recent form has shown they have only individual players and lack cohesion in the team. United have lost 3 successive games, which includes a 3-1 defeat to the Hornets last weekend. However, the mid week League Cup win against a League One side showed some signs of recuperation as the manager played some of his fringe players.
Jose Mourinho have now lost 16 of his last 34 competitive games between as Chelsea and United manager. United fans won’t be happy to see another defeat at home this week, as they hope to build on the League Cup win.
Leicester City seemed to have picked up in the past weeks, getting two consecutive 3-0 victories. However, They were stunned at home in the League Cup as they lost 2-4 to Conte’s side. Leicester City threw away their 2 goal lead as they were kicked out of the competition. Okazaki’s brace put them in front, but G. Cahill and C. Azpilicueta’s goal in 45th and 49th minute leveled the two teams. Chelsea went on to win the game in the Extra time via Cesc Fabregas’ brace.

Manchester United are in desperate search for a win and Leicester City could be the worst possible opponent they could come across at this point of time. However, the Foxes had their own issues this season, which makes this an evenly balanced contest. The teams settled for a draw when they met last time at the Old Trafford and we could witness a same result on Saturday. So both teams to score and over 2.5 goals is my favourite tip for this match
