Premier League: Leicester vs Manchester United

Leicester vs Manchester United Betting Tip and Predictions. In the one of most interesting matches this weekend in Premier League Leicester host Manchester United.

Leicester play amazing this season and after 13 rounds they are standing at the top of the table with one point more than Manchester United. Home side have the best attack in Premier League so far. Two players are the most creditable for their success, Vardy and Mahrez. They both scored together 20 goals. This game will be the real test for Leicester to show are they capable to finish the season in the top. The big job this season is doing Claudio Ranieri, who think that it will be very hard to break United defence. “United’s defensive line is fantastic. They defend like a unit and it’s difficult to break their lines. We’re top of the table and in this moment I think we deserve it, but this is another match to understand where we can improve.” – said Ranieri.

Manchester United don’t play impressive this season, but they are standing at the second position and will be fully motivated to win this game and retake the first position from home side. Visitors have the best defence in Premier League, conceded only 9 goals, but on the other side their attack is not perfect. Man Utd scored “only 19 goals” in 13 matches. Good news for United are that Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial returned in team after they both missed the last game against Watford. Visitors are unbeaten in their last 5 matches in all competitions in which they conceded only one goal. It will be interesting how they will play in defence against the best attacking team in Premier league.
