Claudio Ranieri’s side come into this match on the back of another poor away performance, this time a 1-0 defeat against Burnley.

Sam Vokes (87) scored for the second successive home match, to ensure that the Clarets gained all three points.
It was another wretched away performance from the Foxes, who along with Burnley still remain the only side without an away win.

The Foxes find themselves 16th in the Premier League, one places and two points above the relegation zone.
Leicester come into this match as the underdogs, with their dismal record this season informing those odds.

It was United’s second fixture in less than a week against Hull, and yet again they have frustrated Jose Mourinho.
United were the dominant side at home, missing a hatful of chances and failing to break down a stubborn Hull defence.
Along with the 2-1 win at the KCOM, manager Marco Silva will be delighted with the application shown by his side.
United Back To Winning Ways

Despite immediately returning to winning ways, United struggled to create any clear cut chances.
Jose Mourinho’s side will be looking to put in a much better result and performance in this match.
