It’s third against eighth this Saturday as Leicester take on Manchester United at the King Power Stadium.
Incredibly, it’s not Manchester United who are coming into this game as the third placed team – it’s Leicester City.
Brendan Rodgers’ side have drew their first two games of the season with Wolves and Chelsea before going on to beat Sheffield Untied and Bournemouth.
Manchester United, on the other hand, enjoyed a dream start when they thrashed Chelsea 4-0 at Old Trafford.
But since then, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side drew 1-1 with Wolves, lost 2-1 to Crystal Palace and lastly, drew 1-1 with Southampton.
In spite of Manchester’s downfall in recent years, they still have a superb record over the Foxes. The Red Devils have won six from their last seven meetings with Leicester – this includes their double last season.
Previous results may be against Leicester in this meeting however, recent form certainly isn’t. If you include their Carabao Cup win over Newcastle, the Foxes are heading into this game having won three straight games in all competitions.
With that in mind, we’re backing the visitors to pull off a surprise. A double chance bet on the Foxes is priced at 21/20 – that is good enough to make this bet into a recommendation.
