Manchester United are by no means out of the race to finish in the top four but they undoubtedly have their work cut out and they simply cannot afford ay slip ups against Leicester on Saturday evening.

But this is no banker home win – far from it, despite United’s being 1/2 chances with Betfred to bag the points. Timing counts for an awful lot in football and Leicester are a stiffer proposition now than they were just a few weeks ago so.

The Foxes are still well short of the peak from last season and the defensive frailties that have held the back all season (averaging an xGA of 2.0) have not gone away completely, but they are heading back in the right direction and there is no doubt they have the capability to cause United problems.

Ralf Rangnick’s side are four points behind Arsenal having played a game more but, unlike the last couple of season’s, it’s on the road where they have slipped up more.

United’s home record this season is actually pretty steady, so much so that only Wolves have won at Old Trafford in the Premier League since Man City’s 2-0 win on November 6.

There have, undoubtedly, been some disappointments along the way, notably the FA Cup defeat to Middlesbrough and the 0-0 draw with Watford – a game in which the Reds couldn’t afford to drop points given the form of top-four rivals Spurs and Arsenal.

Manchester United face a stern battle to finish in the top-four.

Manchester United vs Leicester Prediction

Goals have been plentiful in recent meetings between these sides, with both teams finding the net in the last four and three of those games produced four or more goals.

With Cristiano Ronaldo back among the goals and Bruno Fernandes buoyed by his brace for Portugal in the week, United’s big players should be in a confident mood going into this.

Leicester have the players to hurt United but the Reds have seen off better sides than Leicester at Old Trafford this season and they can stay in the race for fourth by bagging a crucial three points.
