Leicester v Manchester United betting: Preview

No doubt the Match of the Week as the top two in the Premier League goes head to head with each other. Not many would have expected Leicester to be where they are at the moment, top of the standings. Leicester have exceeded all expectations and they have the chance to improve their position at the top of the Premier League and they will hope to repeat last season’s home win over United when they clash on Saturday. The Red Devils do have a strong defence and it remains to be seen if the United defence can prevent Jamie Vardy from scoring in his 11th Premier League match in a row and calming the goal scoring record, which he currently shared with Ruud van Nistelrooy who played for Manchester United before.

Leicester City is playing good football and they are in great form at the moment. They are playing with full confidence and the belief as well as enjoying the games they are playing which gives them the results. Their 28 league goals this season makes them the Premier League top goalscorers and Jamie Vardy has contributed 13 of them in what is turning out to be an incredible season so far for them. Vardy is jointly holding the Premier League record for most consecutive games scored in (10) alongside Ruud van Nistelrooy, so Vardy needs a goal on Saturday evening to beat that record. So, he will be the player to watch for the home side no doubt.

Interestingly, Leicester are the only side in the Premier League to have scored in each of their league games this season.That is very impressive and they have scored eight in their last three games.They have only picked up the two clean sheets all season so you can consider for Both Teams to Score here – Yes as well as this game going Over 2.5 goals. The last three meetings between the two of these at Leicester have gone over 2.5 goals and the way Leicester are playing and scoring for fun it is worth to consider going Over 2.5 as well. In the last four games between the two sides, there have been 18 goals scored as well.

However, in their head to head matches, Manchester United do have the better form having won 10 of the last 11 Premier League games against Leicester. However, the Foxes became the first ever side in the history of the Premier League to come back from two goals down in a game and beat United. That was in their 5-3 win over the Red Devils on home soil last season.

Manchester United have only lost one of their last nine Premier League games, winning six of those but even if they do score and go in front and score then they will know that Leicester are the comeback kings having recovered 10 points from losing positions this season. The player to watch for United will be Wayne Rooney but in midweek they fired blanks in their goalless draw against PSV Eindhoven so they are lacking the creativity to get the goals.

As at this post Leicester  has 3.01  odd to win the match on NaijaBet while Manchester United has 2.30 odd to win the match also, while the odd to draw the match is 3.25 .
