Manchester United vs Leicester City Preview and Prediction: Premier League Match on 11.05.2021

Manchester United will start their busy days ahead this midweek while hosting Leicester City. Their hope to win the Premier League title might have been dashed but sealing the Champions League spot is essential for the remaining weeks. Their first opponent is The Foxes which begin to lose their consistency towards the end, just like in the previous season.

The teams’ previous matches

United smashed Aston Villa 3-1 last weekend on the road. Although they conceded first by Bertrand Traore at the first half, they replied three times at the second half through Bruno Fernandes’s penalty, Mason Greenwood’s strike and Edisom Cavani’s header.

Brendan Rodgers’ men was unable to secure a win at their home turf last weekend. They had to lose 2-4 against Newcastle United and even were four goals behind first as Joe Willock’s, Paul Dummett’s goal and Callum Wilson’s brace led to their concession. Marc Albrighton and Kelechi Inheanacho could only score consolation goals.

Possible tactic

Ole Solskjaer might have to rotate the squad to deploy his 4-2-3-1 formation. Some names will be unavailable here such as Harry Maguire, Daniel James, Anthony Martial and Phil Jones. Edison Cavani could get a nod in the line up as the frontman. He will be supported by Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes.

Meanwhile, Brendan Rodgers is still in favour of 3-4-1-2 with Kelechi Iheanacho and Jamie Vardy upfront while James Maddison is featuring behind them. Several key figures on the sideline are James Justin, Wes Morgan, Harvey Barnes and Johnny Evans.

Players to watch

Apart from Bruno Fernandes who has been fairly consistent this season with 17 goals and eleven assists, The former PSG man Edison Cavani has been in-form lately. He has netted 14 goals and provided four assists in EPL and continental competition and the youngster, Mason Greenwood has contributed eight goals and three assists this season.

The Foxes’ main scorer lately is no longer Jamie Vardy but Kelechi Iheanacho. The former Manchester City man has bagged eleven goals and made two assists in Premier League, only two goal clear from Vardy. Another possible notable figure to watch here is the Belgian international Youri Tielemans. He has scored six goals and three assists.

Manchester United vs Leicester Prediction

Their position might not be far from each other. Ole Solskjaer’s men is only two places above Jamie Vardy and Co, but when it comes to consistency, The Red Devils have exceeded them. They could be the visitor’s night mare again here as last season when Manchester United sealed a win to deny Leicester’s Champions League hope if Brendan Rodgers’s side does not bounce back now.

Betting odds

Manchester United is still the clear favourite here. Their odds to win are at 8/5, whereas Leicester is backed to win only at 135/67. The odds for the draw result are at the value of 12/5.
