Leicester v Manchester Utd
16:00 - 5/2/2017 - King Power Stadium, leicester
Leicester’s torrid away run continued with a narrow loss to Burnley at Turf Moor, a tough place to win even for teams that haven’t been struggling on the road, and the champions now sit a mere two points above the drop zone. They host a Man Utd side who were frustrated by Hull last time out, and Mourinho’s men will be itching for a repeat of the 4-1 drubbing they inflicted upon Leicester at Old Trafford in September.
Man Utd started slowly this season, but they’ve consistently avoided major slip-ups against bottom-six sides, going W4-D3-L0 against struggling teams. The 0-0 draw with Hull was the first clean sheet they’ve kept against such opposition, but they’re fortunate to be coming up against a Leicester side for whom the goals have dried up – the Foxes have failed to score in five of their last six in the league.
United have been very disciplined at home: they’ve scored 11 in their last five across all competitions at Old Trafford, shipping only one in that time (against Liverpool). Consequently, we’d expect them to shut out a Leicester team struggling for goals at this stage – the United Win to Nil looks like a good option at 2.6.
