Leicester would have hoped to have been challenging for the Champions League but a slow start sees them in 13th with just eight points from their opening seven games. Their last game before the international break was an entertaining 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace which saw them let a two goal lead slip. At the King Power stadium, the Foxes are without a victory in their last three in all competitions with each of their last two ending 2-2.
Man United have made a good start with 14 points from their opening seven (sitting fourth) but with a tough section of fixtures to come they might feel they should have done better. Their last game before the international break was a 1-1 home draw with Everton with Anthony Martial their goalscorer. Away from Old Trafford, the Red Devils have beaten West Ham and Wolves and drawn with Southampton.
Leicester vs Man United: Match Stats
Over 2.5 goals looks a great bet in this game as the visitors are likely missing their first-choice centre-back pairing (Maguire and Varane) while the hosts have seen over 2.5 goals in four of their last six in all competitions.
Given we are expecting goals you could take your pick off a number of players here but the value is in Ademola Lookman. The Leicester wide-man will have seen the way Andros Townsend and Everton picked off United on the counter and with his pace should be able to get behind the lines and looks great value in this one.
