Leicester City vs Manchester United - Premier League Preview and Odds

February 03, 2019 15:05pm - King Power Stadium

Premier League

After thwarting Liverpool`s attempt to extend their lead at the top of the table to seven points by drawing at Anfield, Leicester City will look to cause another upset by ending Ole Gunnar Solskjaer`s nine-game unbeaten run as Manchester United boss.

Claude Puel has already overseen wins over Chelsea and Manchester City this season and earned a deserved draw at Liverpool last time out. However, the Foxes unpredictability was on full display in the recent home defeats to Cardiff City and Southampton.

Those results made it three defeats in the last four home games for the former Premier League champions. In fact, their fans have only witnessed two wins in their last eight on home soil - a run that has prompted calls for the bosses head.

Meanwhile, Manchester United dropped their first points under boss Ole Gunnar Solksjaer, coming from two goals down to draw at home to Burnley. Away from home, they have won their last four, notching up wins at Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur in the process. During that run they scored 11 goals and conceded just two.

The Red Devils have a decent record against the Foxes, winning five of their last six meetings including their last three away from home in the Premier League. With a Champions League place now a real possibility, the Old Trafford club will be going all guns blazing for this one.

Betting odds and tips

Leicester City`s inconsistency and their poor recent record against Manchester United makes it hard to back them in this game. Meanwhile, the visitors have played one poor half of football in the last nine games and will hope to get back winning ways this weekend. As a result, the price of 23/20 for the away win looks great value.

You can back Manchester United to win at 23/20.
