Betting tips and match preview | Premier League

Manchester United welcome Leicester to Old Trafford on Saturday lunchtime, with United looking to make it back to back wins.

Manchester United have had a tough week after what had been an excellent start under Mourinho.

A third defeat in seven days against Watford has had many questioning the former Chelsea manager and his tactics.

To some extent that criticism has been stemmed by 3-1 win against Northampton on Wednesday night.

Mini Dip In Form

United’s 3-1 defeat at Watford will have sent alarms bells ringing, with goals from Etienne Capoue, Zuniga and Troy Deeney settling the tie.

Marcus Rashford scored United’s opening goal in the second half, with United failing to register a single shot on target in the first half.

This will worry Jose Mourinho, with United also suffering lacklustre displays against Manchester City and Feyenoord.

They produced an excellent result on Wednesday night at Sixfield though, with Michael Carrick (17), Ander Herrera (68) and Marcus Rashford (75) completing the scoring for United.

Manchester United Favourites

This will be another tough fixture for United, with Leicester in excellent form after their Champions League opening win.

Michael Carrick will have done his chances of a first Premier League start this season no harm, after turning in an excellent display at Sixfields.

The form of Wayne Rooney and Paul Pogba continues to dominate the headlines, getting the best out of both players will be crucial to United’s chances.

United will know this is a match they can ill afford to lose, with three successive defeats unacceptable for Mourinho and his side.


Foxes Looking Good

Leicester travel to the Theatre of Dreams on the back of a 4-2 defeat against Chelsea, in the midweek EFL Cup fixture.

The Foxes took a 2-0 lead, with goals in the 17th and 34th minute from Shinji Okazaki.

Chelsea responded with four goals, Gary Cahill scoring in the 45+2 minute, Azpilicueta scoring in the 49th.

To compound Leicester’s night Wasilewski was sent off in the 89th minute, this ultimately saw the Foxes surrender the game.

Fabregas grabbed a double with extra time just beginning, his goals in the 92 and 94th minute settled the tie in Chelsea’s favour.

Mixed Season For Champions

Leicester have had a mixed start to life this season, with two defeats from their opening five matches as Premier League Champions.

The Foxes enjoyed an outstanding opening night in the Champions League, winning 3-0 away at Club Brugge.

This has proved to be the catalyst to Leicester’s season, with another 3-0 win at Turf Moor last weekend.

Foxes Underdogs

Leicester come into this match as underdogs despite their two excellent performances in the league and Champions League.

Their European exploits mean that it is four games in just under 11 days for Claudio Ranieri and his men.

Ranieri will be wanting to improve Leicester’s recent record against United, with the 5-3 scoreline their most recent victory over United.


Both teams are 8/11 on to score. The first goalscorer odds for Manchester United are Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcus Rashford at 4/1, with Wayne Rooney and Henrikh Mkhitaryan at 6/1. For Leicester, Jamie Vardy is at 7/1 with Islam Slimani at 8/1.

The last time that these two sides met Manchester United won 2-1 and the odds of the same result are 7/1.
