Manchester United vs Leicester City will be one of the most thrilling games of Round 5 in Premier League, which will be held at Old Trafford, in Manchester. Teams started this season differently. Even away, Foxes with newcomers and great team play can be a very dangerous opponent to Red Devils. Please read our review about this interesting Manchester United vs Leicester City Premier League match, here below.

Both teams failed to save clean sheet in 3 out of 4 last Premier League matches. Manchester United won 5 out of 6 last games against Leicester City. At home, Reds are unbeaten playing against Leicester as they won 8 and drawn 2 matches in their head to head history.

Manchester United

Manchester strengthened the defence, however, this is not helping them to play on a clean sheet. They conceded in 3 matches out of 4 in Premier League. Even showing great game Wan-Bissaka and Harry Maguire, cannot prevent opponents scoring goals. It’s strange, but the best game this season was against the strongest opponent Chelsea. Then the Reds won 4-0 against Blues. After that game, Manchester played away against Wolves and Southampton scoring goals first, but lost the advantage in the second half and conceded a goal. Absolutely on the same plot, they play away games.

The biggest first games opening is a young newcomer from Swansea Daniel James. He is the best scorer of the squad. Wales talent shows his best side by playing in the attack and helping in defence. While Manchester struggling in the attack, ex-Man Utd player Lukaku scoring in every match for Internazionale. At Old Trafford Manchester should bring very important 3 points, however, Leicester looks really strong at the moment. Moreover, Eric Bailly and Paul Pogba will miss the next game.

Leicester City

The Foxes started this season very confidently going to the 5th round unbeatable. They collected 8 points in 4 matches. They have drawn 2 matches playing against match favourites with Chelsea and Wolves. Moreover, they won against the Premier League rookies Sheffield United and Bournemouth. Jamie Vardy started to score goals again and looks pretty solid starting this season.

During the summer transfer window, they spent big amount of money on new signings. They brought Youri Tielemans from Monaco, Ayoze Perez from Newcastle and Dennis Praet from Sampdoria. Youri already scored a goal and took an important place in the main squad, while Ayoze Perez still searching for his best football. Of course, after Maguire departure defence weakened and they need to find a way to strengthen this area. In general, a very talented and young team shows solid results.
