Leicester City vs Manchester United Match Preview and Team News
Leicester City managed three matches against Manchester United undefeated last season; this time, they need that form more, as they play host to United in Round 8 action in the Premier League. A poor start to the campaign sees Leicester 13th with eight points after seven games while United is fourth with 14 points. Leicester City has been poor defensively this season, and that has formed the bulk of their problems. Their only clean sheet in the last ten matches was against Millwall in the League Cup, and going to this game, they dropped a two-goal lead before drawing 2-2 with Crystal Palace. Leicester have conceded two goals in four of their last six matches, and both teams have scored in six of the previous 10. Youri Tielemans plays well in the middle of the park, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Kelechi Iheanacho enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and goes towards the goal, the opponent has problems. He is strong, and it is challenging to keep this guy.
Manchester United is also on a shaky run but isn’t as badly off as Leicester. In the last game, they drew 1-1 with Everton and will go to this game searching for a second clean sheet in 11 matches. Just like Leicester, they’ve been shaky in defense, and ahead of this game, both teams have scored in seven of the ten played this season. United are winless in their last two league matches, but they have a fine run away from home in the league – unbeaten in 29. This will be a tough game for manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, with Harry Maguire out injured and Raphael Varane picking injury on international duty. The injury headache will extend to Marcus Rashford still staying out, but the manager will have more to worry about in defense than attack. Jadon Sancho is the engine of this team, he goes through the opponent’s defense like a fast train, has excellent ball control, and the English international can be satisfied with his performance. Edison Cavani shows that he is a great reinforcement, and he scored ten goals last season.
