Manchester United v Leicester City Match Preview & Trends

Foxes Aiming To Exploit United Exhaustion and Save Top-4 Dreams

An unexpected defeat at home to Newcastle has left Leicester City stunned and dangerously close to slipping out of the top-4 having been in the top places most of the season. They will be fresher than their hosts who played just two days ago, defeating Aston Villa 3-1 at Villa Park. United may be without their skipper Harry Maguire who took a knock in that match and is a major doubt to face his old side and could miss a Premier League game for the first time in his United career. The England center-half has an impressive record of playing every minute in the league since his £80m move from Leicester to United the summer before last.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be left with little or no option but to rotate his troops with Liverpool due to visit Old Trafford on Thursday in the rearranged fixture after the initial match was postponed due to the anti-glazer protest chaos a few weeks ago. There has been extra security and additional fences installed at The Theatre Of Dreams to prevent any reoccurrence of fans and protestors storming into the ground.

The last 3 games between Man Utd and Leicester at Old Trafford have seen at least one penalty and The Red Devils have scored the first goal of the game in the last 7 home games against The Foxes. There have been fewer than four cards in each of the last 5 games involving Leicester and Manchester Utd have won their last 4 home fixtures. Leicester City have scored in 88% of their away matches and have netted in each of their last 5 away fixtures. The Foxes have scored 35% of their goals after the 75th minute.

If Manchester Utd win, they would increase their lead over Leicester City to 10 points in the league table, and it would be United’s 5th consecutive home win, their 15th consecutive match without defeat, and the 11th consecutive home match with at least 1 goal scored. A draw doesn’t change much for either side but would perhaps favor the home team more than the visitors. Should Leicester City win, they would reduce the gap with Manchester Utd to a 4-point difference in the league table, and it would be a significant boost to their top-4 hopes

Key trends

Manchester United have picked up an average of 1.88 Points Per Game in their 16 matches played at home

Leicester City’s average Points Per Game in their 17 away games is 2.06

Manchester Utd have been undefeated in their last 14 matches.
