Manchester United will try to get back on the Premier League track when they will travel to Leicester City on Saturday afternoon. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team is fourth in the table, only two points behind champions Chelsea heading into the next round of Premier League games. Here is our expert guess on Leicester City vs Manchester United football prediction for the Premier League match of the season.
Before the break, Wilfred Ndidi suffered a thigh injury and as a result, he will be sidelined for the rest of the month. Hamza Choudhury will be hoping to keep his starting spot.
Brendan Rodgers would be anxious to have Jonny Evans available after he was unable to play for Northern Ireland during the international break. Jannik Vestergaard is ready to go.
Wesley Fofana is still out for the Foxes, but James Justin is close to returning. For the right-back spot Ricardo Pereira and Timothy Castagne are vying.
In recent weeks, James Maddison has fallen out of favor, and he may have to make do with a spot on the bench against Manchester United.
In a game against Leicester City, Marcus Rashford may make his first matchday squad of the season. Amad Diallo’s recuperation isn’t far behind.
Raphael Varane is likely to be out for a month after he suffered a groin injury while playing for France earlier this week.
For the first time since February Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof are expected to start together, with Harry Maguire set to miss out once more.
Due to their late return from international service, Fred and Edinson Cavani are unlikely to be available.
Leicester vs Manchester United Prediction
Leicester has had an unusually bad start to the season with only two wins in their first seven games. Manchester United is also going through a difficult period winning just two of their past six games and has only played well in spurts throughout the season.
Solskjaer will be missing his dependable midfielder Fred, which will not be missed by United fans, so it’s easy to envisage Leicester tearing through United at will on Saturday, particularly on the counter-attack. Their Premier League unbeaten streak of 29 games away from home will be greatly jeopardized here.
United have won all 29 of their away matchups (Premier League).
Over 2.5 goals have been scored in five of Leicester’s past six games (Premier League).
In their last three games, Leicester has conceded at least two goals (Premier League).
Leicester City possible starting lineup: Scmeichel; Bertrand, Soyuncu, Evans, Pereira; Barnes, Tielemans, Choudhury, Lookman; Vardy, Iheanacho
Manchester United possible starting lineup: de Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Bailly, Lindelof, Shaw; Pogba, McTominay, Greenwood, Fernandes, Sancho; Ronaldo
