Competition: Premier League
Market: Leicester City to win against Manchester United
Odds: 9/4 @ 888 Sport
It’s an early title-race six-pointer between surprise-package and Premier League leaders Leicester City and current runners-up Manchester United tonight at the King Power Stadium, and a game that is close to call. Leicester are being tipped as favourites by many due to their impressive start to the season, but the experienced United side have been hard to beat regardless of qualms about a pedestrian playing style.
The Foxes will be looking to get the crowd on their side, and will try to use their pace to get behind the United backline. However, the visitors will be counteracting Leicester’s attacks by reducing the space in behind the defence to exploit, and will instead retain possession for long periods to tire out the Midlands side. Leicester are a highly industrious side so they could break up United’s ball-playing with their energetic style.
United manager Louis van Gaal has been criticised this season for a slow-paced style of play, but it has led to the best defensive record in the Premier League. That could change this weekend, however, with Leicester having scored more goals than any side in the division. They have won four on the bounce ahead of Saturday’s clash, and are being backed by 888 Sport with odds of 9/4 to take all three points against the Red Devils.
