Leicester vs Manchester United Betting Tips

Leicester City take on Manchester United in a straight shoot-out for a place in next season’s edition of the Champions League.

The Foxes have endured a tough end to the season however, their hopes of reaching Europe’s elite club competition still lay in their own hands.

A win for Leicester will guarantee their place in the top four but, anything short of the three points will see the Red Devils clinch the European spot instead.

Brendan Rodgers and his men could still make the top four with a draw however, they would have to reply on Wolves beating Chelsea.

Despite being the home side, Leicester are the 21/10 underdogs ahead of Sunday’s crunch tie. Manchester United, on the other hand, are priced as the favourites at 6/5.

Both clubs have been rather inconsistent over recent times. Leicester have particularly struggled having won just two of their eight league games since the season resumed.

Manchester United’s inconsistencies, meanwhile, have come to the surface over the last two weeks. A 2-2 draw with Southampton was followed by a 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace. However, a 3-1 loss to Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-final was followed by yet another draw in the league; this time against West Ham at Old Trafford.

United have a good record in games against the Foxes having won seven of their last eight head to head games. The last two, interestingly, were both won by the 1-0 score line.

Our recommendation is to back another 1-0 win for Manchester United at the current price of 17/2. This is expected to be a tightly contested encounter however, with Leicester far from their best it could open the door for United.

    Bruno Fernandes and Jesse Lingard secure third for Manchester United

    Bruno Fernandes and Jesse Lingard fired Manchester United back into the Champions League to deny Leicester a fairytale finish.

    A second-half Fernandes penalty and Lingard’s late goal – after Kasper Schmeichel’s howler – secured a 2-0 win as United rejoined Europe’s elite after a one-year absence.

    United continued their resurgence under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as they clinched third in the Premier League ahead of Chelsea.

    Leicester have been forced to settle for the Europa League after the winner-takes-all clash at the King Power Stadium and their frustration was compounded after Jonny Evans was dismissed in injury time.

    Victory would have sent Brendan Rodgers’ side into the Champions League at United’s expense but they have just fallen short.

    Jamie Vardy, who won the Golden Boot with 23 goals, hit the woodwork for the hosts but the Foxes end the season fifth.

    They needed to arrest a winless run against the sides above them this season, having collected two points from a possible 21.

    Their only victory over United in 23 games was a 5-3 win in 2014 and another failure saw them miss out on the top four.

    Not that the season should be viewed as a flop but after losing a 14-point lead over United they still have reason to be disappointed.

    The Foxes created chances, Nemanja Matic gifting them an early one when he presented the ball to Kelechi Iheanacho and the striker teed up Wilfred Ndidi to drill just over from 20 yards.

    Mason Greenwood guided a header over for United but Leicester were the better side in a game which never lived up to its billing.

    Iheanacho continued to find space and scuffed a shot which David De Gea spilled after 25 minutes with United vulnerable to the Foxes’ quick breaks.

    Solskjaer’s side knew their fate was in their hands but failed to find serious first-half momentum even if Fernandes had a goal correctly ruled out for offside.

    Tielemans rolled a low effort wide but United created the game’s best chances just before the break.

    Marcus Rashford curled over after James Justin missed Paul Pogba’s pass and the England striker was denied by Schmeichel in first-half injury time.

    Fernandes’ corner came to the forward at the far post and, after he collected himself, his fierce strike was beaten away by the goalkeeper.

    Justin was forced into an excellent tackle to halt Anthony Martial after Matic’s pass split the Leicester defence a minute after the restart.

    United tried to exert some pressure on the Foxes yet the hosts held firm and went closest to breaking the deadlock after an hour.

    Victor Lindelof brought down Vardy on the left and the striker then flicked Tielemans’ free kick onto the angle of post and bar.

    It proved to be Leicester’s best chance with Fernandes, so often United talisman since his January arrival, striking with 19 minutes left.

    His inch-perfect throughball found Martial and a combination of Evans and Wes Morgan took the striker out.

    Fernandes then rolled in his 10th goal of the season from the spot to leave Leicester with no way back.

    Harvey Barnes fired at De Gea and Demarai Gray curled wide but the Foxes finished with 10 men after Evans saw red for a lunge on Scott McTominay in stoppage time.

    Lingard then rubbed salt into the wounds when he tapped in after robbing Schmeichel as the goalkeeper tried to dribble past him.
