Leicester City – Manchester United (Premier League)

Leicester City and Manchester United go up against each other at King Power Stadium, on Saturday night, fort the 19th round of the Premier League. Leicester City are here after an unexpected home defeat against Crystal Palace, in the previous round, and as if that were not enough, they were also eliminated from the EFL Cup in midweek, against Manchester City. Manchester United, on their turn, fell into a very disappointing defeat on Wednesday night, losing at Bistol City’s ground in the EFL Cup quarter finals.

Leicester City are in 8th place with 26 points, from 7 victories, 5 draws and 6 defeats, with 27 goals scored and 26 goals conceded. The defeat on Tuesday night against Manchester City, in a penalty shoot out, left Leicester out of the EFL Cup, with the team suffering successive defeats for the first time since the start of September. The Foxes lost their last match at the King Power Stadium, falling unexpectedly at the hands of Crystal Palace by 3-0, a defeat that put an end to 4 consecutive victories, their best moment in the Premier League so far this season.

Claude Puel’s men have a good home record, winning 3 of their last 5 Premier League matches here, losing the remaining 2, with 5 goals scored and 6 goals conceded, with these two defeats being against Manchester City and Crystal Palace. The Foxes have a good offensive quality, but are conceding too many goals, with their defensive organization seeming to be their Achilles tendon. Here they find a very well-organized defense team with good offensive arguments, which might led Leicester to be more concerned defensively and seek to exploit the space behind United’s defense, taking advantage of the speed of their forwards, Mahrez and Vardy, both counter-attack threats.

In their last 5 official matches, Leicester City has a record of 3 victories, 1 draw and 1 defeat. This sequence of results started with a 1-0 victory against Burnley. This result was followed by a 2-3 victory over Newcastle, a 1-4 victory against Southampton, a 0-3 defeat against Crystal Palace, and in their last match, a 1-1 home draw against Manchester City, for the EFL Cup. Matty James is out due to injury.

Probable Lineup: Schmeichel – Simpson, Morgan, Maguire and Chilwell – Ndidi, Iborra, Albrighton and Gray – Mahrez – Vardy.

premier-leagueManchester United, on their turn, are in 2nd place with 41 points, from 13 victories, 2 draws and 3 defeats, with 39 goals scored and 12 goals conceded. This team led by Jose Mourinho arrives here after a disappointing defeat at Bristol City’s ground, for the EFL Cup, their second defeat in the last four consecutive games. Manchester United have won their last two Premier League matches, both by the minimum advantage, with the team finding it difficult to get stronger results.

Away from home, the Manchester side won their last 3 Premier League matches, scoring 9 goals and conceding 4 in the process. With 12 goals conceded in the league, as much as Manchester City, the Red Devils are the team with fewer goals conceded, counting also with the 2nd most effective attack. Although they are already out of the title race, with the Citizens 11 points above them, the Red Devils must aim for, at least, a 2nd place finish, and with only 3 points above Chelsea, the victory here is mandatory.

In their last 5 official matches, Manchester United has a record of 3 victories and 2 defeats. This sequence of results started with a 2-1 victory against CSKA Moscow, for the Champions League. This result was followed by a 1-2 defeat against Manchester City, a 1-0 victory over Bournemouth, a 1-2 victory against West Bromwich, and in their last match, a 2-1 defeat against Bristol City, for the EFL Cup. Carrick and Bailly are out for this tie due to injury.

Probable Lineup: Gea – Young, Jones, Smalling and Blind – Matic and Pogba – Mata, Lingard and Rashgord – Lukaku.

Leicester City have only won 1 of their last 8 direct clashes, drawing 2 and losing the remaining 5.

Both teams were both eliminated from the League Cup in midweek and must now respond on Saturday night. Leicester were able to create difficulties against Manchester City and have enough quality to do so against Manchester United. Expect a very intense game from the first whistle, with several scoring chances at both ends of the pitch.
