Manchester – Leicester
Will it be another tough season for Manchester United? So far it looks like this. In four rounds since the start of the Premier League, the Red Devils won only once – against Chelsea at the Old Trafford. Right now they are 8th in the league with just 5 points won so far. That’s why United will look for a win at any cost against Leicester City on Saturday.
Since the win against Chelsea in the first round, Manchester United won only two points in their last three matches. In the previous round Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s boys faced Southampton away from home. Daniel James opened the score for the Red Devils, but the Saints secured a point with a goal from Jannik Vestergaard.
More and more fans of Manchester United are starting to ask themselves if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is the right man to manage the club. If Solskjaer don’t start to deliver very soon, he might get replaced before the end of the season.
In the same time Brendan Rodgers is doing a very good job at Leicester City. Right now the Foxes are third in the standings with 8 points won. Leicester are still unbeaten in the league with a record of two wins and two draws.
In the last round the Foxes hosted AFC Bournemouth at the King Power and won the game with 3-1. The team’s target man Jamie Vardy scored a brace, while the Belgian international Yoeri Tielemans also scored for Leicester. Callum Wilson from the visitors put the ball behind Kasper Schmeichel, but this was all from the Cherries at the King Power.
We expect a very competitive game between Manchester United and Leicester City on Saturday. The Red Devils have the home ground advantage, but the visitors look like the team in a better shape at the moment.
