Manchester United vs Leicester City Preview, Latest H2H record and Prediction: Premier League 21/22, Gameweek 8
The Red Devils visit the Foxes this weekend in what promises to be a thrilling Premier League encounter after a long international break. On this note, Alley Sport brings you the Manchester United vs Leicester City Preview, Latest H2H record and Prediction from the latest gameweek of the Premier League 2021/22 season.
Manchester United vs Leicester City Preview
Manchester United are well and truly thinking of themselves as title contenders this season. But they have faltered in recent times with a run of several games where they haven’t gotten the desired results. This has frustrated fans and put pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The most recent one of those came in a 1-1 draw against Everton in what was a frustrating outing for them.
They have their new players in Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane, and Cristiano Ronaldo but things still seem off. Sancho is yet to hit form while Solksjaer has failed to gel the team together while also failing to get in a defensive midfielder over the summer. And now, they have a massive task this weekend as they face a Leicester City side hungry for results after an underwhelming start to their season.
Leicester would be thinking of themselves as contenders for the UEFA Champions League spots but after an underwhelming start to their season, are reeling for relevancy. A win or even a draw against United at the King Power Stadium would undoubtedly fill Brendan Rodgers’ head with confidence and can spur the team to finally kickstart their season.
