Ultimate EPL Previews — Leicester Vs Manchester United: Who Will Win The Crunch Top-four Decider

Match Preview

Harry Maguire

Leicester City

The Foxes’ uninspiring display since the return of the league, including their 3-0 defeat to Tottenham, have seen them picked just seven points from possible 18.

They surprisingly occupy the fifth position with 62 points and they are on the verge of missing next season’s Champions League competition despite being in the third position prior to the Coronavirus-enforced break.

Luckily for Brendan Rodgers’ men, their future is very much in their hands as they are up against Manchester United, who are direct competitors for a spot among the top-four clubs.

Therefore, Sunday’s clash is a must-win encounter for the King Power outfits who have been inconsistent throughout the campaign.

Manchester United

Manchester United, at the other hand, haven’t been in their best all through the season— although there are unbeaten in the League since their 2-0 defeat to Burnley in January.

Their 1-1 stalemate against West Ham last Tuesday didn’t help matters but they will hope to up their game against their top-four rivals on Sunday.

Uphill Task For Leicester City?

The home side have a huge task to achieve on Sunday as they need an outright victory against the Red Devils who need just a draw.

Considering the fact that Leicester City have lost to the Old Trafford outfits on seven occasion in their last 10 fixtures, it won’t be out of place to predict an easy day for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men.

Nonetheless, nothing is impossible in the game of football and the home side might shock the Premier League giant.

Our Prediction

It’s definitely going to be a cracker later on Sunday as we expect both sides to be in their respective best.

We, however, tip the Red side of Manchester to pick maximum point by a 3-2 scoreline.
