Manchester United vs Leicester for the English Premier League championship match on Saturday at Old Trafford Stadium.
For the Premier League, we have for this Saturday the Manchester United vs Leicester prediction for the 5th round of the competition.
Favouritism is with Manchester United playing at home. On the other hand, Leicester looks for a win by playing away to score essential points in this championship start. Indeed, both teams have good pretensions in the championship.
The Manchester United team came from 6th place last season. Thus, the result guaranteed them participation in the Europa League. The squad comes to the season with some reinforcements and an agile team.
In the first matches of the championship, they got a victory, two draws and suffered a defeat. Sums 5 points in the table and occupies the 8th position. Thus, scored 7 times and conceded 4 goals. However, it is still early for the numbers to influence the team’s performance.
In their last clash, they tied 1-1 away with Southampton, getting 1 point after beginning the match in front after 10 minutes. They dominated much of the game finishing well beyond the opponent but lacked quality in the kick, and the goalkeeper also did his part.
The Leicester team reached 9th place last season, thus ending with a good result, as the team has a squad that has some technical limitations. But overall it made a good championship.
This year the team is still unbeaten, they have two wins and two draws in four games. This performance guarantees the 3rd place to the team in this championship start. In their performance, they scored 6 goals and conceded 3.
Against Bournemouth, the team managed to win by playing at home. Also, they managed to determine the pace of the game, did not completely dominate the game, but enforced the host position. So got the score of 3 × 1.
Despite Manchester United’s favouritism, the Leicester team made good appearances at the start of the championship and showed a side of very technical quality that knows how to control the game in the defence sector.
We have a match between two teams that are equivalent by what they have shown so far. Manchester United seem to have more problems to correct on the pitch, especially in their attack.
Here we have a tendency of few goals, as the teams should not open early in the match, as both should play with caution and try to know the opponent before creating opportunities to score.
