Leicester vs Manchester United Match Preview and Team News
There always seems to be one team that surprisingly makes a poor start to the season. This year it’s Leicester City who is bottom of the Premier League and hosts eighth-placed Manchester United. The Foxes have just one point from their four league games but led 2-0 in that 2-2 draw at home to Brentford. City lost 2-1 at Chelsea on Saturday, and that makes it ten goals conceded so far in the new Premier League season. Fourteen of their last 16 league fixtures have seen Leicester concede at least once. Losing Fofana looks extremely likely, and that’s not going to help City at all. 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 a problem. It’s a low absenteeism rate, with just one fitness concern for the Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers to be concerned with from an almost fully healthy group of players. Ricardo Pereira (Achilles tendon rupture) will miss out.
Manchester United played Southampton at the weekend and won 1-0. That made it two league wins in a row and ended their poor run of form on their travels. Although they won on Saturday, the performance was nowhere near as good as that seen when beating Liverpool at home after those two league defeats. United is still four points adrift of the final Champions League qualifying place. Wins breed confidence, though, and perhaps the closing of the transfer window will make life a little bit easier at Old Trafford, all that uncertainty can’t be helping. 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. Scott McTominay found the right role in the team, he moves great in the middle of the field, and it isn’t easy to take the ball away from this guy.
