England Premier League
Sunday 26th July 2020
Kick off at 4pm BST
Venue: King Power Stadium
This should be an interesting duel against two teams who have been very good this season. Though Leicester shone more in the first half of the season and United certainly in the 2nd half. Indeed United in these past few weeks have arguably been he best side in the Premier League.
The main focal point of this game though is the Champions League, with the outcome of this game helping to determine whether both or just one of these two teams will qualify.
Leicester’s home record is a proud one but much like the season before they seem to lose games at home to the stronger more experienced teams and this will evidently be a hard game for the Foxes to win. However assuming Chelsea don't lose their game, then Leicester will have to win, so they will have to be positive in this match, although that could play into Man Utd's hands who only need a draw to qualify.
Manchester United have chased down a European finish in relentless fashion and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has changed the mindset of the team so much that many critics of him are now eating their words, it’s fair to say that he needs to win trophies with the club but throw in some of the performances that he has been getting out of the players and the feel good factor, and he may just be United’s best manager since Sir Alex Ferguson.
Leicester: Leicester continue to have numerous injuries with Maddison and Chilwell unavailable, and Albrighton doubtful. Soyuncu is suspended.
Manchester United: Central defender Eric Bailly is a doubt for this game.

Leicester vs Man Utd Prediction:
Manchester United have had some brilliant results over Leicester in recent times and the Foxes have really struggled against them. Away from home United could have done better this season but their recent form is very good, and it is only recent of course that matters. We should see an entertaining game hopefully with goals, but with United only needing a draw, this plays perfectly into their tactical preference of counter attack, therefore United will be difficult to beat here and we can see Solskjaer’s men getting the three points, however we will cover the draw as that's all they need.
