Leicester vs Manchester United Prediction 16 October 2021

Leicester City hosts Manchester United in round 8 of the English Premier League. The match will be played on Saturday, October 16h at King Power Stadium (Leicester)

Leicester City is in 13th position in the English Premier League standings (eight points after seven rounds). The Foxes gained two victories and two draws and suffered three defeats. They have shown very unstable results in recent weeks, gaining only one victory in seven matches. Leicester has not won in the UEL group stage yet (a 2-2 draw Napoli and a 1-0 defeat to Legia), and it has not gained victories in four Premier League rounds in a row. The only triumph of the Foxes happened in the League Cup game against Millwall (0-2). On October 3, they lost a 2-goal lead over Crystal Palace away (2-2). In the first half, goals from Kelechi Iheanacho and Jamie Vardy provided the visitors with a comfortable advantage, but the Glaziers restored the balance in the score after the break.

Manchester United is in 4th place in the standings (14 points after seven matches). The Red Devils have chalked up four wins, two draws, and one defeat. Their results also leave a lot of questions. In the last six games in all tournaments, the Mancunians achieved only two victories. They beat West Ham in the Premier League (2-1) and Villarreal in the Champions League (2-1) thanks to goals scored in the last minutes. At the same time, Solskjaer's players were eliminated from the League Cup by the Hammers (0-1), and the last two rounds of the Premier League brought them only one point. Manchester United tied 1-1 against Everton at Old Trafford on October 2. The home team took the lead before the break after a goal by Anthony Martial, but the Toffees arranged a quick counterattack and equalized in the second half.

It is impossible to highlight a clear favorite in the upcoming game. Leicester has a hard time at the start of the season. Rogers's men are not as formidable as in past seasons. Manchester United is also unstable, which could prevent it from scoring points. It is more likely that the Foxes and Red Devils will have a productive match. In the previous season, the teams scored at least three goals three times. Leicester's defense, weakened by injuries, has not conceded only in the game against Millwall. The attack of the visitors, led by Cristiano Ronaldo, will get a lot of chances to aggrieve Kasper Schmeichel. On the other hand, Manchester United runs the risk of being left without a pair of main center-backs, Varane and Maguire, and this could help Jamie Vardy and company score at home.

Prediction for the match: Over 2.5 goals scored
