Leicester vs Man Utd prediction, betting tips & odds

Kick-off: 2000, 01/09/2022

Stadium: King Power Stadium

TV: BT Sport

Leicester are bottom of the Premier League table after a turbulent few weeks but the end of the transfer window may help settle them down.

Manchester United ended a run of away defeats at Southampton on Saturday but were far from convincing and could still be vulnerable on the road.

We just feel the Foxes are overpriced at 3.4 and a home win is our first Leicester vs Man Utd prediction.

Leicester City Odds

Leicester have suffered three straight top-flight defeats since blowing a 2-0 lead when drawing 2-2 with Brentford here on the opening weekend.

However, the Foxes have had their moments when going down 4-2 at Arsenal, 2-1 versus Southampton and 2-1 at Chelsea.

Brendan Rodgers felt they were worthy of at least a point at Stamford Bridge, albeit against a team reduced to 10 men inside half an hour.

Raheem Sterling’s double did the damage for the Blues, with City only able to respond via a Harvey Barnes strike.

However, Daniel Amartey had an effort ruled out after Barnes was harshly ruled to have fouled goalkeeper Edouard Mendy and Ayoze Perez hit the crossbar.

Rodgers told LCFC TV: “We’re disappointed not to equalise. Lots of really good moments in the game for us.

“We fought back and then it was really, really unfortunate not to score. The keeper makes some great saves and we’ve also hit the bar.

“There were other moments where we could have scored, so yes, it’s disappointing not to have taken at least a point.”

With uncertainty surrounding several players coming to a conclusion, Leicester should have a fresh resolve to recover from their shaky start.

Barnes has the pace to trouble the Red Devils and Leicester vs Man Utd odds.

Last Leicester line-up: Ward, Justin, Evans, Amartey, Castagne, Barnes, Tielemans, Dewsbury-Hall, Praet, Soumare, Vardy.

Manchester United Odds

United have shown how quickly things can turn around after kicking off with a home loss to Brighton and a horror show at Brentford.

The Red Devils were worthy 2-1 winners against Liverpool at Old Trafford and followed that up with a hard-fought 1-0 triumph at Southampton.

Bruno Fernandes scored the only goal of the game at St Mary’s as United produced a performance that showed more guile than style.

“Everyone’s fighting and digging in for each other,” Scott McTominay told the club website. “And sometimes that’s what you’ve got to do, you’ve to win ugly.

“It takes a lot to come back from that (Brentford defeat) as a team and fight and we just can’t let that dip now.

“We’re not getting carried away. We need to make sure the fire we had for Liverpool and Southampton is still there, it can’t go out against Leicester or Arsenal.”

However, that was a very even contest which could easily have gone either way, with Lisandro Martinez and David De Gea keeping Saints at bay with some resilient play.

The Red Devils, who had previously suffered seven straight away defeats, were guilty of giving away possession too easily and still looked nervous at set-pieces.

In what could be an end-to-end encounter, let’s add 5.5 for a home win and both teams to score to our Leicester vs Man Utd betting tips.

Last United line-up: De Gea, Martinez, Malacia, Varane, Dalot, Fernandes, Eriksen, McTominay, Rashford, Sancho, Elanga.
