Leicester vs Man Utd Tips


Struggling Leicester City will look to make the most of Manchester United’s defensive crisis when action returns to Premier League after the international break. This eighth-round match of the season will be played at the King Power Stadium in the early hours of Sunday, Australian time.

Leicester City are struggling to manage their European commitments with the Premier League aspirations and find themselves searching for a way out. Man United are in the middle of a defensive crisis with crucial players missing in action. That could mean goals at both ends with Leicester’s chances of a draw an outside pick.

Verdict

Leicester City need to regroup and start moving up the points table. There can’t be a better time than this to face Manchester United as they currently scramble across to cover defensive concerns.

I am backing this match to see goals at both ends considering the defensive fragilities of the teams. A small wager can be had on the match resulting in a draw.
