The fans have already witnessed some thrilling matches this mid-week. There is still one more match of the week to be played tonight as two strong teams face off against each other. Leicester City are ready to take on Manchester United at King Power Stadium tonight.
Both Leicester City and Manchester United started their journey in the EPL in a poor way. Let’s start with Leicester City’s performance so far in this season. The Foxes are yet to win a match in the English Premier League. Leicester City already have played four matches, where they faced Brentford, Arsenal, Southampton, and Chelsea FC. Except against Brentford, the Foxes lost all the remaining three games they played. Moreover, they shared the points with Brentford FC in their first match. As a result, Leicester City are at the bottom of the table with just one point.
On the other hand, Manchester United suffered two successive defeats in their first two matches. But the Red Devils recovered brilliantly. They defeated Liverpool and Southampton FC in their previous games. Moreover, the Ten Hag boy’s kept a clean sheet against Southampton. The defensive stability makes the team more confident on the pitch.
Stats & Records
Leicester City are unbeaten in their last four meetings against Manchester United. They won two and drew two in those matches. Exactly a year ago, The Foxes defeated Man United by a 4-2 score. However, Man United have scored all of their last 26 games against Leicester City.
For Manchester United, they will miss the service of Anthony Martial. The France international hasn’t recovered yet. He had a brilliant pre-season for Man United. But he missed most of the league games so far due to injury. However, defender Victor Lindelof has come back to the squad. He is yet to be featured in the EPL this season. Now he is back and has trained with the team. The remaining players of Man United’s camp are ready to play tonight.
On the other side, Leicester City will miss Wesley Fofana as the defender is likely to join Chelsea FC within a few days. Moreover, James Maddison is still doubtful, but the manager will wait until the last moment for the English midfielder.
