Premier League: Manchester United vs Leicester

Manchester United vs Leicester Betting Tip and Predictions. In the opening match of Round 6 in Premier League, Manchester United host Leicester City at Old Trafford. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Manchester United vs Leicester.


Manchester United started this season in Premier League very good and won the first three league matches. After that their performance became very poor and they lost three matches in a row, including the match against Feyenoord in the first match of the UEFA Europa League. The big city rivals and one of the main candidate for the title, Manchester City beat Jose Mourinho’s men 1-2 two weeks ago, while last week Watford took three points after they beat Manchester United 3-1. Meanwhile, home side eliminated Northampton in the 1/16-final of EFL Cup. There are some rumors that Mourinho is not satisfied with their defence and he want to buy Sergio Ramos from Real Madrid, according to Calciomercato. The match against Leicester City doesn’t come in the right moment for The Reds, but they have to win this game in order to stay in a race for the title.

Leicester started this season in Premier League very solid and after five rounds they are standing at the middle of the table. It’s hard to believe that can repeat their success from the previous season and win the title, but their main goal is to finish in the Top 5 and play in some of the European competition next season. After poor start, visitors have improved their performance and won two matches in a row. First, they beat Club Brugge KV 0-3 in their first match in Champions League, while last week they smashed new promoted team Burnley 3-0 and the atmosphere in the team is good. The newcomer Islam Slimani made a debut in Premier League against Burnley and managed to hit the net two times and without any doubt, he could be the most dangerous player, alongside Jamie Vardy, for Manchester United‘s defence.

Team News

Home side miss Anthony Martial and Phil Jones due to injury, while Luke Shaw and Henrikh Mkhitaryan are both doubtful. On the other side, visitors will be without their first goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel and Nampalys Mendy due to injury, while Marcin Wasilewski is suspended.

Manchester United vs Leicester Predicted Lineups

Manchester United: de Gea, Valencia, Bailly, Smalling, Blind, Fellaini, Pogba, Mata, Herrera, Rashford, Ibrahimovic.
Leicester: Zieler, Simpson, Morgan, Huth, Fuchs, Mahrez, Drinkwater, Amartey, Albrighton, Slimani, Vardy.

Manchester United vs Leicester Prediction

Home side are under big pressure and they have to win this game, which means that they will have to attack. It could open free space for fast Leicester’s attackers and Manchester United could be in danger. However, I expect interesting match between Manchester United vs Leicester and goals both nets.
