Manchester United vs Leicester City Betting Tips
These two teams could be the main rivals for a spot among the top 6 this season. Although the Red Devils are generally thought of as a better team than the Foxes, they haven’t been too impressive so far this season. They did start the new campaign by thrashing Chelsea 4:0 but since, they haven’t been too great.
Actually, after four rounds, they have only 5 points. We say only because this team dropped points against some major underdogs. They played 1:1 with Wolves in an away game and the same result was when they played Southampton at the South Coast. But, even that wasn’t the worst result of the season. Their biggest disappointment happened at the Old Trafford when they lost to Crystal Palace.
That was their previous match played in front of their crowd, which is why they’re now looking to say sorry to the fans with a win over Leicester. But, beating the Foxes won’t be easy because this team has been playing very well since the start of the season. Actually, Leicester City are without a defeat since the beginning of the new season, having won two games and playing draw on two occasions. And their form seems to be improving all the time. In the opening round, they played a 0:0 draw; in the second round, it was 1:1. And then they won two games in a row, scoring two against Sheffield and three against Bournemouth.
What’s got to worry the Foxes is that they don’t have a great record with Man United. Actually, they lost every single time in their last seven meetings. And the only time they beat the Red Devils in history was in 2014.
Of course, winning all three points in Manchester would be great for Leicester, but they’d probably be very satisfied even with a draw. And that’s exactly why they’re expected to defend with all they got on Saturday and look for their chances from counter-attacks. But, will this work? Considering how poor Man United have been in front of the goal lately, it probably will.

Manchester United Form and Latest News
The biggest problems of the Red Devils at this moment is their attack. With Martial out due to an injury, they’re left without a proper striker. Rashford will have to take that role, even though his natural position is on the wing as an inside forward. Speaking of injuries, Martial is just one of many first-team players who will miss the game. Others include Luke Shaw, Erik Bailly, and so on.

Same as Man United, Leicester also have problems with injuries, although their issues are much more lightweight. Amartey and James are definitely out, but this team seems to be able to do without them easily.
