Leicester City have been busy forging a reputation as no shrinking violets on home soil ahead of Manchester United’s visit to the King Power Stadium.
Usually parsimonious top-five finishers Everton and Arsenal have emerged with sheets sullied from visits to the home of Gary Lineker already this term.
Yet, despite the form of the Foxes’ expectation-exceeding Argentine marksman Leonardo Ulloa, the Red Devils’ defence won’t be overly alarmed.
After all they’ve conceded just four times in their last ten Premier League away games, keeping a sizeable seven clean sheets at odds with the ‘club in transition’ tag they were burdened with last term.
As a result, backing Leicester not to score at 8/5 looks quite the apposite under-the-radar wager on a fixture in which Louis van Gaal’s men are weighty 67/100 favourites to record consecutive victories.
Leicester, also on the hunt for a second three points in as many matches, are 15/4 for maximum reward, while a third big-club stalemate in a row at the King Power is 14/5.
However United ride into the fixture on the back of consecutive clean sheets at Burnley and at home to Queens Park Rangers, with a heartening history of miserly defending in Leicester to draw upon.
A solitary Frank Sinclair consolation goal back in September 2003, when Gerry Taggart and Muzzy Izzet still strode the turf, is the only time the Red Devils have conceded in their last nine games with the Foxes.
