Leicester City vs Manchester United Prediction

Prediction, Odds & Betting tips for Leicester City v. Manchester United at English Premier League

  • Where: Kings Power Stadium, Leicester, England
  • When: Thursday, September 1, 9 pm local time

Leicester hosts Manchester United in the closing game of the Premiership round 5. The Foxes have been without a win since the campaign’s start, which worries the fans and management. Brendan Rodgers still isn’t feeling the heat, but the former Liverpool and Celtic manager need to do something. On the other side, Manchester is slowly recovering from a terrible start, and Erik Ten Hag eases up the pressure on him and the entire team. We will see if this is just a temporary spark or something else.

Leicester City vs. Manchester United Preview

Leicester City

Rodgers’ unit has three straight losses following a draw on the opener. At first, they played 2-2 against Brentford, wasting a two-goal lead, and after that went on to suffer defeats against Arsenal, Southampton, and Chelsea.

All four games the Foxes played this year were with three or more goals, and in all of them, they both scored and conceded, noting that Leicester’s defense allowed at least two goals in each encounter.

Wesley Fofana’s departure only made things worse for the Foxes, who are now without their best defender, and they already have the other important piece in the back line, Ricardo Pereira, out due to an injury. There isn’t too much time to react on the market, and the options are limited, making Leicester’s situation only more complicated.

Manchester United

Defeating Liverpool boosted the Red Devils’ morale, and they survived St.Mary’s Stadium on Saturday, beating Southampton, 0-1. Following two very pale performances at the start of the Premiership, Manchester regrouped, taking six points.

Ten Hag started making radical moves, like leaving Maguire and Ronaldo on the bench against Liverpool. It appears that the Dutch manager has all the freedom to do as he pleases, even if that means that one of the clubs’ biggest legends will have a rough treatment. 

Casemiro’s arrival should sort out defensive issues, which have been taken care of well in the last two events. Lisandro was perfect against Southampton, winning all of his five aerial battles.

Leicester City vs. Manchester United Head to Head

United didn’t defeat Leicester in the last five head-to-head matchups. Since late 2020, these teams met four times in the EPL and once in the EFL Cup, and we saw the Foxes triumphing on three occasions and two draws.

During the 2022 campaign, Leicester won 4-2 at home, while the game at Trafford ended 1-1.

Leicester City vs. Manchester United Prediction

This is a good game for betting on both teams to score. As you saw in the analysis, Leicester conceded a goal in all the games so far, while United managed to keep one clean sheet. Both teams have problems in the back line, which is why both teams scoring is the perfect choice for Thursday’s matchup.

Our verdict: Both teams scoring
