Likely Winner:

  • In 2021, Leicester has already defeated Manchester United in both the Premier League and the FA Cup, both at Old Trafford. For the first time in 120 years, the Foxes may win three consecutive meetings against the Red Devils in all competitions.
  • Leicester’s current four-match Premier League winless streak is the club’s joint-longest under Brendan Rodgers. Since taking only one point from Claude Puel’s final six league games in charge in early 2019, the Foxes haven’t had a worse run.
  • Since a 2-0 defeat at Liverpool in January 2020, Manchester United has gone 29 games without losing on the road in the English Premier League (W19 D10). During this time, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team has won 34 of their 67 away points from a losing position.
  • Since the beginning of April, Leicester has lost eight of their 16 Premier League games. Only Burnley and Wolves have suffered more defeats in that time, with 11 and nine respectively.
  • We are predicting a score draw in this fixture.

Match Odds: 

Leicester City: 28/11
Manchester United: 22/19
