Man Utd vs Leicester City: 5 Talking Points Before Kick Off

Man Utd vs Leicester City: Line-ups

Man Utd

Leicester City

Red Devils to Stay Hot


While it is still possible for the Red Devils to usurp Man City at the top of the rankings, they remain 10 points behind their bitter rivals with four games left to play, and defeat here would see City wrestle the crown off Liverpool’s hands as expected.


Even if United manage to prevail against Leicester – which would mark their 15th Premier League match in a row without defeat – it would surely only delay City’s inevitable title coronation by another few days, but the Red Devils are at least all but assured of a top-four finish.


The Foxes have been far from consistent on home soil this season, but they travel to Old Trafford having lost just one of their last 12 Premier League matches – finding the back of the net on 11 separate occasions during that run.


Leicester and Man United played out a pulsating 2-2 draw on Boxing Day earlier in the season, but they have failed to win at Old Trafford since earning promotion back to the Premier League in 2014 – losing five and drawing one of their top-flight games on the Old Trafford turf.


Leicester have struggled to end their Old Trafford hoodoo over the past few years, but there may be no better time for them to do so than against an extremely fatigued Red Devils outfit. Nearly a whole contingent of changes can be expected on the hosts’ end, but Man United have plenty of strength in depth, and that could see them claiming a point from this encounter.
