What Trueform says for Leicester vs Man Utd
Both of these teams suffered EFL Cup disappointments in midweek, but we’re focusing on their Premier League form and rate Leicester a value pick to secure a positive result versus Manchester United.
The Foxes almost fell off our Trueform chart when hammered by Crystal Palace at this venue last weekend, but we reckon they deserve another chance judged on four straight wins before that blip.
A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds
Bowing out of the EFL Cup on penalties against a youthful Manchester City side was frustrating, but Claude Puel is unlikely to lose too much sleep over that setback.
In fact, he was probably just relieved to get the 3-0 debacle against Palace out of his system with a solid display.
Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez helped lift the Foxes when coming off the bench, with the England striker ending a four-game drought by scoring from the spot to make it 1-1 at full-time.
“It was important to give a good response after the last league game,” commented Puel. “I like our positive outlook.
“We were unlucky. We had the most chances. It was a fantastic game between two good teams.”
A Look At Manchester United’s Betting Odds
Jose Mourinho made a number of changes for Wednesday’s EFL Cup trip to Bristol City but will still have been upset by seeing a strong team crash to a 2-1 defeat.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic did score for the first time since April with a 58th-minute free-kick, but still seemed well short of peak fitness in open play.
The United boss was gracious in defeat, commenting: “They played brilliantly, they fought like it was the game of their lives, which probably it was. A beautiful day for football.”
However, he will be concerned by more defensive frailties on the road after only just hanging on to beat West Brom 2-1 at The Hawthorns last weekend.
The Red Devils have claimed three straight away wins in this competition, but rode their luck at Arsenal and allowed Watford to fight back from 3-0 down before eventually prevailing 4-2.
