Leicester City vs Manchester United Match Analysis and Prediction

Boxing Day presents a thrilling encounter in the Premier League as second takes on third in the table. Leicester City welcome home Manchester United at the King Power Stadium. The match schedules for Saturday with kickoff at 3:30 pm.

The Foxes amassed 27 points from their last 14 league matches this season to sit second. The side is one point ahead of the Red Devils who have a game in hand over the Foxes and the Reds.

No side in the Premier League’s top half has lost many matches than Leicester City with five losses this season. However, the Foxes have the most joint-most wins counting with nine levels with leaders Liverpool.

The end of November and start of December has been a slightly slow start for the Foxes who have lost three of their four matches across all competitions. However, the 2015-16 League champions won four of their five league matches before Boxing Day.

The Foxes bounced from a 2-0 home defeat to Everton followed with a 2-0 win against Tottenham last weekend. Their home form has been concerned with three wins and four losses in seven top-flight matches at the King Power Stadium.

Ole Gunnar’s charge at Old Trafford was called into question several times. However, six wins in their last seven matches while remaining unbeaten proves otherwise.
