Leicester City will head into the King Power Stadium for the toughest and determining clash of their 19/20 season. The side will take on in-form Manchester United for a battle for a top-four finish with hopes of Champions League football. The last match of the season schedules for Sunday with kickoff at 6:00 pm.
Brendan Rodgers seemed to relive another impressive season dating to the 15/16 when they raised the Premier League title. With Liverpool already raising the title, the Foxes were keen on a top-four finish. The changing tides see the club battling out for a chance in the top four this weekend.
It has been a rough start since the restart of the Foxes. Toppled with injury woes, the side has posted some disastrous performances. The race for Champions League could never be tight with the Red Devils third and Chelsea fourth. The Foxes are currently fifth in the rankings with 62 points.
The Red Devils have been in-form since the restart. The side leap-frogged from the seventh position since the restart to third in the league. Having tasted defeat in their clash against Chelsea and a draw to West Ham, the side must avoid a defeat at the King Power Stadium.
Both sides have an equal chance of securing a top-four finish this weekend. However, the side also contends with how the Blues will fare on against Wolves. A draw for the Red Devils will be enough for a top-four finish.
