Leicester City v Manchester United tips – 2/1 Red Devils can run the show
Manchester United can continue their resurgence by beating the Foxes at the King Power Stadium
September 18th, 2014
All of a sudden, Manchester United are being discussed as potential Premier League title candidates again, with last weekend’s 4-0 demolition of QPR heralding a new dawn featuring Angel Di Maria and Daley Blind.
Having Radamel Falcao on the bench isn’t bad either and the Colombian might make his full debut at the King Power Stadium, with one of Wayne Rooney or Robin van Persie potentially making way for the on-loan striker.
We’re likely to see United heavily backed for Sunday’s match although it’s worth bearing in mind that Leicester have only lost one of their opening four encounters, having drawn with Everton and Arsenal before landing the three points at Stoke City.
Their only defeat of the campaign came at Stamford Bridge and the 2-0 reverse was by no means embarrassing, with Nigel Pearson’s team a 19/4 chance with BetVictor to cause an upset by winning this Sky Sports televised encounter.
However, perhaps there will be no stopping this United machine now that it has clicked into gear, with Di Maria having played a starring role against the Hoops, while Louis van Gaal has reverted to four defenders with Blind operating in front of them.
The last two matches have seen United keep a clean sheet and it could be worth swerving the 4/6 about a home win and instead going for the 2/1 with Sky Bet that the visitors win to nil.
Leicester aren’t full of goals, having drawn a blank against Chelsea before scoring one in each of the games against Arsenal and Stoke, while Leonardo Ulloa will be heavily marked by the United defenders.
Wayne Rooney got himself on the scoresheet against QPR and with Di Maria continuing to conjure the assists, the 5/4 about the captain scoring in this game looks an attractive bet considering Everton managed to score twice at the King Power on the opening day of the season.
