Leicester – Manchester United – Review for 16.10.2021

Leicester City hosts Manchester United at the King Power Stadium in a game from the 8th round of the Premier League. Stay with us and our football prediction betting tips today. We expect a great match here!

Leicester City didn’t start the new season in the best way possible and that’s pretty obvious. Brendan Rodgers’ team won just two of its seven games since the beginning of the campaign. That’s the main reason why Leicester are currently 13th in the standings with 8 points won – 8 points behind the current leader Chelsea.

At this moment the Foxes are in a run of four consecutive matches without a win. Before the international break Leicester faced Crystal Palace at the Selhurst Park and the game ended 2-2. Brendan Rodgers was really disappointed with his players because at halftime Leicester had two goals advantage, but they were unable to keep it. Iheanacho and Vardy scored in the first half, but after the break Palace scored twice and fought well for a point. We expect some changes in Leicester’s line-up for the derby against Man City. James Maddison started from the bench against Palace, but most likely he will return in the starting eleven. Marc Albrighton also came from the bench in London, so he’s an option for the line-up against the champions.

What’s positive for Leicester since the beginning of the season is the way Jamie Vardy performs. The veteran striker scored six goals in seven matches played so far. Even at 34 years of age, Vardy remains deadly in the penalty area. This is going to be very important for Leicester because he remains an influential player in the dressing room. At the same time against Crystal Palace Kelechi Iheanacho scored his first Premier League goal for the season. Let’s see if he can keep it up.

Manchester United are doing okay so far as they are 4th in the standings. The distance between them and the current leader Chelsea is just two points, so we can say United are going according to the plan. The only problem is their current shape – the Red Devils won just one point in the last two matches against Aston Villa and Everton – both of them at the Old Trafford.

The manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was criticized for starting Cristiano Ronaldo from the bench during the 1-1 draw with Everton. The Norwegian manager decided to make some rotations in the line-up as he gave a starting place to Anthony Martial and Edinson Cavani in attack while Ronaldo, Sancho and Pogba sat on the bench. Martial scored United’s only goal in the game, but this risky move didn’t work as the hosts won just a point from the match. Cristiano, Sancho and Pogba entered the pitch in the second half, but instead of doubling their lead, Manchester United conceded an equalising goal in the middle of the second half.

We believe Solskjaer won’t be doing any experiments against Leicester, too. Playing at the King Power is very hard, so United will need their best line-up on the pitch. This means that players such as Cristiano Ronaldo and Paul Pogba should be on the pitch. The captain Harry Maguire missed the last game, but he should be ready to lead the defense again after the international break.

That’s the football prediction betting tips today for the Premier League clash between Leicester City and Manchester United at the King Power Stadium. The Foxes need to raise the tempo after the slow start, but they have a fearsome opponent ahead. Let’s see what these two teams can offer us.
