Manchester United will be looking to get back to winning ways and extend their unbeaten run at Old Trafford to 17 matches, after a 2-2 draw against Leeds put an end to their 13-game win streak at home. Erik ten Hag’s men came back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 against the Whites, with strikes from Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho ensuring the Red Devils left the match with a point.

Since then, United have beaten the same opponents to close the gap to the top of the table to Arsenal and Man City to just five points and played out an enthralling 2-2 draw against Barcelona at Camp Nou in the Europa League, to set up a winner takes all second leg at Old Trafford on Thursday.

Manchester United have now lost just three of their last 21 Premier League matches (W14 D4), earning more more Premier League points than any other side (46) since their first win of the season against Liverpool on August 22nd. 

Leicester meanwhile, are up to 13th in the table, after a 4-1 demolition of top four hopefuls Tottenham at the King Power. Despite going 1-0 down after just 14 minutes, the Foxes came back in emphatic style, with goals from Nampalys Mendy, James Maddison, Kelechi Iheanacho and Harvey Barnes. This meant that Leicester recorded back-to-back wins in the Premier League for just the third time this season.

Brendan Rodger’s side are looking to win three consecutive Premier League games for the first time since January 2021, while they’ve scored more goals in these last two victories (8) than they had in their previous eight league games combined (7).

Man Utd vs Leicester match stats

Marcus Rashford has been in red hot form since the World Cup finished, scoring 14 goals and providing four assists in his 16 appearances since the competition came to and end. His strike against Barcelona on Thursday, was his 22nd of the campaign, equalling his best ever goals tally in a season for Manchester United. The Englishman has also scored in each of his last six Premier League home games and could become just the third player to score in 7+ consecutive home Premier League games at Old Trafford after Cristiano Ronaldo in 2008 and Wayne Rooney in 2010 with another strike here. 

Having struggled for game time up until recently, Kelechi Iheanacho has taken his chance with both hands and forced his way back into Brendan Rodgers’ side. The Nigerian has been involved in five goals in his last two Premier League games (2 goals, 3 assists) as many as he had in his previous 27 appearances (3 goals, 2 assists) and has found the net four times in his last six matches across all competitions.
