Leicester vs Manchester United prediction
Leicester City is having difficulty creating chances and are giving up a lot of possession to their opponents with only two wins in their first seven games.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under criticism and his side is also going through a difficult period. In the past six games Manchester United has won only two games and has played well in spurts throughout the season.
Solskjaer will also be missing his dependable midfielder Fred, which will not be missed by United fans, so it’s easy to envisage Leicester tearing through United at will on Saturday, particularly on the counter-attack. Their Premier League unbeaten streak of 29 games away from home will be greatly jeopardized here.
United have won all 29 of their away matchups (Premier League).
Over 2.5 goals have been scored in five of Leicester’s past six games (Premier League).
In their last three games, Leicester has conceded at least two goals (Premier League).
Leicester City possible starting lineup: Scmeichel; Bertrand, Soyuncu, Evans, Pereira; Barnes, Tielemans, Choudhury, Lookman; Vardy, Iheanacho
Manchester United possible starting lineup: de Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Bailly, Lindelof, Shaw; Pogba, McTominay, Greenwood, Fernandes, Sancho; Ronaldo
Our Prediction: Leicester City 2 – 2 Manchester United
