Manchester United Betting Preview
Manchester United currently sits in third place in the standings, having picked up 46 points. Manchester United faced off against Barcelona in the Europa League on Thursday, and they ended up with a 2-2 draw. Marcus Rashford scored in the 52nd minute to open the scoring. Manchester United had 39 percent of the possession and five shots on target. Casemiro is still suspended, and he’s not going to be able to go in this game. Antony is still dealing with an injury, and he’s not going to be able to go in this game. The offense needs to be strong in this game, but they can’t just assume their defense is going to be good enough. Manchester United needs the defense to be strong here.
Leicester City Betting Preview
On the other side of this matchup is Leicester City, who sits in 14th place having picked up 24 points. Last Saturday against Tottenham Hotspur, Leicester City scored four goals and that led to the three goal victory. Leicester City had 48 percent of the possession and seven shots on target. Youri Tielemans missed the last game because of a calf injury, but it’s expected that he’s going to be able to go in this game. In this game, it’s going to come down to if the defense can make enough stops. If they only give up a goal, they are going to have a great chance to secure the victory.
Shane’s Free Pick
There is going to be no shortage of scoring in this game. Leicester City is a strong offensive team, but their defense is an issue, and it’s going to let them down again in this game. Manchester United is going to take advantage of that weak defense and scored two or three goals here. I also expect Leicester City is going to score a couple of goals and this game is going to be high scoring. Back the over 3.5 goals.
