Premier League: Leicester City vs Manchester United preview, team news, prediction and tips
October 15


Leicester City and Manchester United will lock horns in the Premier League matchday 8 at the King Power Stadium on Saturday. The kick-off is at 16:00 CEST.


Despite starting off the 2021/22 season with a 1-0 win over Manchester City in the Community Shield, Leicester have gone on to claim only two wins in the opening seven PL matches. As a result, Brendan Rodgers' men will host Man United on the back of a four-game winless run in the league, including a 2-2 draw at Crystal Palace on October 2, occupying the 13th spot in the table with just eight points.

United, for their part, have failed to beat Aston Villa (1-0) and Everton (1-1) in their latest Premier League games before October's international break to find themselves in fourth with 14 points taken from seven matches.

Team news

Leicester's Wesley Fofana, James Justin and Wilfred Ndidi remain on the sidelines and won't feature on the weekend while Raphael Varane won't help the Red Devils this time around as he picked up a groin issue while on international duty with France. Fred and Edinson Cavani, meanwhile, will only return to the UK from international duty on Friday, meaning that both South Americans will play no part on Saturday.


Given Leicester's all but disgusting form this season and United's need for all three points following their slips-up against Villa and Everton, we'd say that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men look to be the hot favourites to win at the King Power this time around. The Red Devils, however, have failed to beat Rodgers' crop in their previous three head-to-head meetings, so let's not write the host off too early in this one. With each side missing some of their key defenders for the forthcoming encounter, we'd say that you should definitely expect an entertaining clash between the two on Saturday, especially considering the fact that Jamie Vardy and Cristiano Ronaldo have already scored six and three goals in seven and four league games respectively so far.
