BETTING & MATCH PREDICTION
On Saturday afternoon, Leicester host Manchester United at the King Power Stadium, with the hosts looking to kick-start their Premier League campaign.
Brendan Rodgers team has certainly not experienced an ideal start to their top-flight campaign. The Foxes have won just two of their seven league matches so far this season and currently sit in 13th place in the English top-flight table.
A 2-2 draw at Crystal Palace last time out in the league means that the team from the Midlands have now failed to win in four outings in the English top-flight. The game also saw Leicester concede at least two goals for a third straight Premier League match. Rodgers team has kept just one clean sheet in the league this season.
The Red Devils head into this game on the back of an underwhelming run of performances and results. A 1-1 home draw with Everton last time out means that United have now won just once in their last four competitive outings.
Despite their recent run of poor form, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team has suffered just one league defeat this season. Like their opponents, United have struggled for Premier League clean sheets, keeping just one in their seven league matches so far this season.
One major positive for the visitors is their recent away record in the English top-flight, as the Red Devils are unbeaten in 29 league games on their travels.
However, they have suffered defeat in their last two meetings with Leicester, having not beaten the Foxes in three games in all competitions.
Leicester are expected to be without defenders Wesley Fofana and James Justin, while Wilfried Ndidi and Jonny Evans are also fitness doubts.
Manchester United have no definite absentees, but the Red Devils have major doubts over the fitness of centre-back pair Harry Maguire and Raphael Varane, as well as forward Marcus Rashford.
This should be a highly entertaining encounter with plenty of goals. We are backing the draw in this clash, as potential defensive absentees for both teams could be a major factor in a stalemate.
