Leicester will be aiming to kick-start their Premier League season when they welcome Manchester United to the King Power Stadium on Saturday.
Brendan Rodgers’ side have made a disappointing start to the campaign, claiming just eight points from their seven opening matches and failing to win any of their last four.
Leicester City vs Manchester United latest odds
However, having come out on top in each of their last two games against this opposition, Leicester are available at 5/2 (3.50) with bet365 to earn a much-needed morale boost by coming out on top once again.
Man Utd are also in low spirits after taking just one point from the last available six but are 21/20 (2.05) favourites to get back on track with a victory here.
Just one of the last seven meetings between this duo has resulted in a draw, but you can get odds of 13/5 (3.60) on them cancelling each other out on this occasion.
Leicester City vs Manchester United first goalscorer
With six goals to his name in seven league games so far, Jamie Vardy is his side’s 13/2 (7.50) favourite to open the scoring, while Kelechi Iheanacho can be backed at 15/2 (8.50) after scoring twice in last season’s 3-1 FA Cup win over this opponent here.
Cristiano Ronaldo started on the bench in the 1-1 draw with Everton prior to the international break but is the 3/1 (4.00) front runner to break the deadlock, with Bruno Fernandes a 7/1 (8.00) shot at a ground where he has scored in two of his three previous visits.
Leicester City vs Manchester United preview
After taking just one point from their last two home games against Aston Villa and Everton, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men might be feeling relieved to go back on the road again for this clash.
Indeed, they have looked far more assured away from home than at Old Trafford recently, currently enjoying a club record 29-match unbeaten streak in the league on their travels.
Leicester City vs Manchester United tips & predictions
With the Foxes in poor form and missing a number of key defensive players, 21/20 (2.05) seem generous on United bouncing back with a victory at a ground where they remained unbeaten in each of their last six visits.
