Leicester City vs Manchester United Stats

  • There have been over 2.5 goals scored in 5 of Leicester's last 6 league games.
  • Leicester have scored at least 2 goals in their last 3 matches against Man Utd in all competitions.
  • Leicester have seen over 2.5 goals in their last 3 matches against Man Utd in all competitions.

Betting Tip: Over 2.5 Goals

It may be a surprise to see that this game is 3pm on a Saturday and not one of the live TV games. It has the hallmarks of an entertaining encounter and attackers on both sides should be relishing their opportunity to take advantage of weakened backlines.

Leicester have really struggled defensively without Wesley Fofana, Caglar Soyuncu has had a terrible time of it from the Euros and Jonny Evans has his own injury issues. James Justin remains out and Brendan Rodgers will be gutted that the impressive Wilfred N’Didi is ruled out too. You can see why Manchester United are odds-on then, especially with their impressive road record.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has selection issues himself though. Harry Maguire may not be fit to face his former club and Raphael Varane picked up a knock with France on international duty so it may be a centre half pairing of Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof, a significant downgrade.

I’d expect United to go out with a we’ll score more than you approach and it may be the best plan of attack to make it into more of a basketball game. Goals have been a feature of both sides games this season and I’m surprised over 2.5 goals isn’t shorter than the 5/6 on offer. 

Betting Tip: Jamie Vardy to Score Anytime

Jamie Vardy will be fresh and raring to go after no international games for him after retirement. The electric frontman loves playing the big guns and with United likely to play a higher line than most he could have a field day against a patched up defence. He’s bagged 6 in 7 this season and should be shorter than the 19/10 on offer to score anytime here, especially as he’s on penalties.
