Man United vs Leicester Tips


Man United are facing a second game in three days in a hectic fixture schedule. They know that a win is needed to stop rivals City for being crowned champions - temporarily at least.

Although they will be forced into changes, the Red Devils are on a five-game winning run at home and tipped to get the better of stumbling Leicester. BTTS is also tipped at Old Trafford.

  • Man United have won 9 of their last 12 matches (all competitions).
  • Man United have won their last 5 home matches (all competitions).
  • Man United have seen over 2.5 goals in 4 of their last 5 matches (Premier League).
  • Man United have been over 2.5 goals in 7 of their last 8 home matches (Premier League).
  • Man United have seen BTTS in 4 of their last 5 matches (Premier League).
  • Man United have won their last 4 home matches against Leicester, and 10 of the last 11 (Premier League).
  • Leicester have seen BTTS in their last 3 matches (Premier League).
  • Leicester have seen BTTS in their last 5 away matches (Premier League).

Head to Head


Man United have a 68-34 head to head advantage over Leicester in 132 matches played between the sides. There have also been 30 draws. 

The sides have met twice already this season, with a 2-2 draw in the Premier League on Boxing Day following by a 3-1 FA Cup quarter-final win for Leicester in March.

Man United Form


Man United kept alive their slim Premier League title hopes with a 3-1 win over Aston Villa on Sunday.

United came from a goal down to win at Villa Park as second-half goals from Bruno Fernandes, Mason Greenwood and Edinson Cavani sealed the points.

Ole Gunnar Solksjaer's side are 10 points adrift of leaders Man City with four games to play. Anything less than a victory against Leicester will hand their rivals the title.

Prior to defeating Villa, United were beaten 3-2 by Roma in the UEFA Europa League semi-final. The Red Devils progressed to the final with an 8-4 aggregate win.

Man United Team News


Centre-back Harry Maguire is a doubt after being forced off against Villa with an ankle injury late in the game.

Eric Bailly is likely to deputise if Maguire is ruled out.

Ole Gunnar Solksjaer is expected to make changes with his side playing three times in five days.

Defender Phil Jones, winger Daniel James and forward Anthony Martial remain out through injury.

Leicester Form


Leicester's top four bid has faltered, including a horrow show on Friday night as they lost 4-2 at home to Newcastle.

The Foxes were 4-0 down before Marc Albrighton and Kelechi Iheanacho scored in the last 10 minutes to add some respectability to the scoreline.

The shock defeat followed a 1-1 draw away at 10-man Southampton a week earlier, and Leicester find themselves looking over their shoulder in the race to stay in the top four.

Brendan Rodgers' side had won three in a row in all competitions prior to the last two games. They beat Southampton in the FA Cup and West Brom and Crystal Palace in the Premier League.

Leicester Team News


Centre-back Jonny Evans was due to make his comeback from an ankle injury against Newcastle, but withdrew during the warm-up.

He is a major doubt against his former club.

Defenders James Justin and Wes Morgan are still sidelined, as his forward Harvey Barnes.
