Leicester – Manchester United – Although the second Sunday meeting of the 24th round of the English Premiership meet teams from opposite sides of the table, there is a difference that is the 16 th Leicester and sixth Manchester United are currently in pretty bad companies and will therefore be very interesting to see whether any of them right after this skirmish “draw” a results of this crisis. Otherwise, this is their third game already this season, and the last two were celebrating “red devils”, primarily in the English Super Cup with a 2: 1 and in the Premiership with a 4: 1, while in turn last year both their championship matches finished 1:1.
But what certainly gives hope among fans of Leicester is the fact that since his return to the elite rank at home are still not defeated by United, so it will Vardy and society surely now do their best to come to a positive result. All the more so because after the last three losses came to only two points difference from the relegation zone, while it is expected soon and the appearance in the eighth finals of the Champions League and therefore the coach Ranieri announces that his chosen just in this match with United, try to return to right form.
Otherwise, the popular “foxes” are in addition to those League defeat by Leicester, Southampton and Burnley, recently in the FA Cup as the hosts played only 2: 2 against second division Derby but will for passage into the next round as early as next week against them again test their strength and in their King Power stadium. But before that you have to do better and this domestic tour with United, who also requested interrupt something worse series, so this will definitely be a difficult challenge for the English champions. As for the problems with absences due to injuries have sidelined only attackers Slimani and Ulloa, while midfielder Amartey remains on African Cup of Nations.
Probable lineups Leicester: Schmeichel – Simpson, Morgan, Huth, Fuchs – Mahrez, Ndidi, Drinkwater, Albrighton – Okazaki – Vardy
As for the guests from Manchester, but we say that they are currently in some of crisis, especially in the championship, where they had a three draws and so came again to four points behind the fourth and fifth Liverpool Manchester City. On the other hand, in the League Cup and are the away team’s defeat to Hull last in the grand final, because in the first match on his Old Trafford they celebrated with more goals difference, until recently in the FA Cup routinely carried out the work in the domestic tour with second division side Wigan , beating them with even 4: 0th
But already in the following priority performance on home field played only 0: 0 against Hull penultimate and so missed the opportunity to continue to hold the port for positions that lead in the Champions League. However, they still have only five points behind second Tottenham, which means that all this can very quickly get, but just in case you as soon as possible restore the recent one form, when they had nine wins. Otherwise, the first team to be after a long break due back and returnee from the African Nations Cup, defender Bailly, which is certainly good news for coach Mourinho because he is in the meantime exactly in that position hurt Jones.
Probable lineups Manchester United: De Gea – Valencia, Smalling, Bailly, Rojo – Carrick, Herrera – Mata, Pogba, Lingard – Ibrahimovic
Leicester – Manchester United TIP
No matter what the victory meant a lot to both teams, we still believe that Ranieri and Mourinho this time opt for something safer and more defensive approach, but all over again in order to remain unbeaten at the King Power Stadium.
