Man Utd vs Leicester: Predictions
Man Utd’s 3-1 win over Aston Villa on Sunday secured Champions League football for the Red Devils next season, as they can no longer drop out of the top four. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side hold a 12-point gap over fifth-placed West Ham, who have three games left to play, and are 13 ahead of Liverpool who have four to play.
But the victory also saw Man Utd delay Manchester City’s coronation as Premier League champions, something they will be looking to repeat this week. Man Utd are currently 10 points behind Man City but can reduce that deficit to four points before their rivals play again, putting the ultimate pressure on Pep Guardiola’s side.
Standing in their way in the first of those two games are Leicester who will be looking to avoid a repeat of last season when they looked set for Champions League football only to crumble at the death and miss out on the top four. Leicester have never been out of the top four this season and going into the final weeks of the campaign, the Foxes were deemed a guarantee to join Man City and Man Utd in the Champions League.
However, Brendan Rodgers’ side have endured a tough run of form that has seen them lost three of their past six Premier League games, including a 4-2 defeat against Newcastle United on Friday that saw them trail by four goals before making the scoreline closer. The Foxes are still five points clear of West Ham but, after Man Utd, face Chelsea and Tottenham in a tough end to the campaign.
Man Utd vs Leicester: Match Stats
There aren’t many forwards as in form as Kelechi Iheanacho in the Premier League right now, and the Nigerian is showing no signs of slowing down. Iheanacho has scored 10 goals in his past nine Premier League games since the start of March, only failing to find the net in two of those matches. He also has a good return against Man Utd, scoring three and recording two assists in five starts across all competitions.
While Iheanacho is doing the damage from open play, there is a chance one of these two teams will get an opportunity to score from the penalty spot. Both Man Utd and Leicester have been awarded 10 penalties in the Premier League this season, more than any other team in the division. For the record, Man Utd have scored nine, while Leicester have put away eight.
