The battle between the top three teams in the Premier League will take place at King Power Stadium on Saturday. Take a look at our Leicester City vs Manchester United Preview.
Leicester City Recent Form & Team News
Leicester City are currently in 2nd place in the Premier League, which is the second consecutive season they manage to do that. Although that’s the gift their fans would have wanted, a Boxing Day duel against Manchester United could quickly squash their title dreams and Christmas cheer. Namely. the Red Devils are undefeated in 12 H2H meetings (W9, D3).
The Foxes are averaging only 1.29 goals per PL match at home, and they suffered four home losses so far (W3). It’s the same number they lost during the entire 2019/20 campaign. At King Power Stadium this season, Brendan Rodgers’ side has been disappointing and unpredictable.
Player to watch: Leicester’s in-form man Jamie Vardy scored in their previous seven PL wins, and netted two of their last three H2H goals.
Hot stat: Leicester have scored eight PL penalties this season – three more than any other side.
Brendan Rodgers will be without Ricardo Pereira (groin), while Caglar Soyuncu (hip) is questionable to play.
Manchester United Recent Form & Team News
The team that scored the opening goal in H2H matches at King Power Stadium won all three points in the ten consecutive duels. However, that is in a direct contrast with Manchester United’s displays away from home this season. The Red Devils have won all six Premier League matches on the road in this campaign despite allowing the first goal every time. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team now has ten league road wins in a row, only one shy of their record 11 straight victories .
United scored 3+ goals in all six road games this season in the PL, so they are rightfully slight favorites here. That, in combination with thrashing Leeds 6-2 at home in their previous league fixture after going 3-0 up in the opening 20 minutes is a quite encouraging for the visitors.
Player to watch: United’s Bruno Fernandes scored and assisted last time out for the seventh time in a PL game this calendar year.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer cannot count on Phil Jones (knee) and Marcos Rojo (calf). Scott McTominay is questionable due to a groin injury.
