Premier League: Leicester vs Manchester United preview

Manchester United will be looking to get back to winning ways when they visit Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Sunday. The Red Devils won the reverse fixture 2-1 in August with goals from Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw, while Jamie Vardy scored a late consolation goal for the Foxes. That was the fifth victory for Manchester United in the last six matches against Leicester City. The Foxes have been unable to win any of the last nine direct matches in all competitions, the last time they defeated Manchester United was in 2014, when they recorded a spectacular 5-3 Premier League victory.

Leicester have pulled off a pretty big surprise this week as they managed to end Liverpool's eight-game winning streak with a 1-1 draw at Anfield. The result also stopped a three-game losing streak in all competitions for the Foxes, who are eleventh in the Premier League table. Central defender Harry Maguire was the one who scored at Anfield, he made it all square after Sadio Mane had put the Reds ahead very early in the game. The only injury concern for the Foxes remains Daniel Amartey, while new signing Youri Tielemans, who was signed on loan from Monaco, is expected to make his debut in the Premier League in Sunday's match.

Manchester United were unable to extend their winning streak to nine matches in all competitions as they drew 2-2 with Burnley on Tuesday. However, the Red Devils should be happy with that result considering that the Clarets had built a two-goal lead in the second half and managed to hold on to it until the 87th minute. Paul Pogba scored the first goal for United from a penalty kick and then central defender Victor Lindelof netted the equalizer in stoppage time. Marcos Rojo remains unavailable through injury, while Chris Smalling, Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba are doubts.

Probable line-ups:

Leicester: Schmeichel - Pereira, Morgan, Maguire, Chilwell - Mendy, Ndidi - Gray, Maddison, Albrighton - Vardy

Man United: De Gea - Young, Lindelof, Jones, Shaw - Fred, Matic, Herrera - Lingard, Rashford, Sanchez

My prediction: 1-1 draw, it should be a pretty intense and balanced match.

Here are the odds for the match at Bet365:

Leicester win - 3.40
Draw - 3.60
Manchester United win - 2.00

    That wasn't the best United game under Solskjaer so far at all.

    The away side created too few chances after scoring early and preferred(or forced) to be passive and just waiting a decent opportunities at counter attack.

    That could of costed United the win after Leicester (who wern't great themselves this game) have a couple of really decent opportunities in the end and they were unlucky not to score in at least one of those.
