Free Betting Tips for Man Utd vs Leicester

Premier League predictions for Sunday's match from Old Trafford between Manchester United and Leicester City. Ten Hag's men will be looking to put pressure on the top two by securing another 3pts this weekend at home to the Foxes. Leicester arrive full of confidence following their 4-1 thrashing of Tottenham last time out but can Rodgers' men make it back-to-back wins against top sides for the first time this season?

Over 2.5 Goals & Both Teams to Score

Our first Man Utd vs Leicester prediction is based on goals scored. Four of the last six meetings between these two clubs in all competitions have produced over 2.5 goals and have seen both teams score. Four of Man Utd's last six outings and three of Leicester's last four fixtures have also produced goals at both ends of the pitch and witnessed at least three goals scored, adding plenty more weight to this prediction.

Marcus Rashford to Score

For our second Man Utd vs Leicester prediction, we're looking at the Anytime Goalscorer market. Marcus Rashford has been in fantastic form for the Red Devils this season, especially since returning from World Cup duty with England. The United forward has scored 12-goals in the Premier League alone this season, 22-goals in all competitions, and we're backing the England international to find the back of the net against Leicester on Sunday.

Man Utd: 13/20 (1.65) – 60.5%

Draw: 7/2 (4.50) – 22.2%

Leicester: 23/5 (5.60) – 17.9%

*all odds provided are the best price at the time of publication and come from various bookmakers and therefore the probabilities won't always add up to 100%.

As you might have suspected, Man Utd are the clear favourite to win at home to Leicester this weekend but we're expecting a close and competitive 90-minutes with plenty of goalmouth action. If you fancy this game to be much more tight and tense then you could back Under 2.5 Goals to be scored at 11/8 (2.38) – 42.1% or place a bet on Both Teams to Score – No at 13/10 (2.30) – 43.5%.

Man Utd vs Leicester Lineups

Man Utd

Man Utd made the trip to Leeds for their last league game. The match itself was very close and competitive, and at one stage it appeared to be heading for a draw. The first half ended goalless but that man Rashford broke the deadlock 10-minutes from time and 5-minutes later, Garnacho added a second to confirm United's victory. Ten Hag looks set to be without the services of van de Beek, Eriksen, Casemiro (suspended), Martial, Antony and McTominay for the game against Leicester.

Predicted Lineup: de Gea (GK), Maguire, Shaw, Dalot, Malacia, Sabitzer, Fred, Fernandes, Weghorst, Rashford & Sancho

Leicester

The Foxes fell behind at home to Tottenham last weekend but went in at the break with a handsome lead thanks to goals from Mendy, Maddison and Iheanacho. Barnes added a fourth goal in the second forty-five to wrap up an impressive 4-1 victory for Rodgers' men but the former Liverpool manager is likely to be without Justin, Bertrand, Evans, Tielemans and Soumare this weekend due to injury.

Predicted Lineup: Ward (GK), Castagne, Faes, Souttar, Kristiansen, Mendy, Maddison, Dewsbury-Hall, Barnes, Ịheanachọ & Tetê

Player to Watch: Bruno Fernandes

With their key playmaker Eriksen out injured and Casemiro suspended, much of the creativity in this weekend's Man Utd side is going to fall at the feet of Bruno Fernandes.

The 28-yer-old Portugal star is more known for his goalscoring and has chipped in with 5-goals in the Premier League this season, making him the club's second-top scorer behind Rashford.

Eriksen has been their main provider of assists with 7 in the league alone but Fernandes is second in that department with 4. Rashford has been leading from the front scoring important goals for the Red Devils and we expect that to continue this weekend with the help of Fernandes who is our player to watch from a creative standpoint this weekend.
