Having started the season with a fiery mood in a 4-0 win over Chelsea, Manchester United have found it hard to keep the fire burning as they head to their matchday 5 of the season. This weekend, the Red Devils will be hosting Leicester City at their Old Trafford in an effort to reclaim its glory as of the Theatre of Dreams. This match will take place on Saturday 14th September 2019 starting 15:00 GMT.
With a dip in form, The Red Devils are looking forward to returning to the winning ways this weekend after a 3 match winless streak. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men are expected to adopt an attack-minded kind of approach in order to win the match. This match is a must-win for them if they have to keep their chances of regaining the domestic trophy alive.
The Foxes are capable of making life imperatively difficult for the Red Devils even in their home turf. With back-to-back wins over the likes of Sheffield United and Southampton, Leicester City is looking forward to building on this and give Manchester United a scare of the season.
Manchester United’s Old Trafford which over the years was a fortress nowadays has become a place any team can walk in and get out with a point or three. With Jamie Vardy having found his goal-scoring prowess of late, the Foxes are capable of forcing a draw at the Old Trafford. We predict that it is worth putting our bets for the match to end in a draw.
