United will get a strong test of their title credentials with clashes against Leicester, Wolves, Aston Villa and Liverpool in their next four fixtures. T
hey’ve won six of seven unbeaten league games heading into this fixture, only failing to extract maximum points against Man City, and they’ve really found their shooting boots over this period.
They plundered 19 goals in total as they struck a minimum three times in five of the seven matches, including an impressive six when hosting Leeds last time out.
The Red Devils had previously been struggling to break deep-lying teams down, and although Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds don’t fit that mould, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be delighted with the recent streak overall.
The defence remains a concern however as United have kept just three clean sheets from 13 games this season, and one from their last five as both teams found the net in four of these recent outings.
Under 2.5 Goals
Despite this tendency for high-scoring games of late, it’s worth noting that both sides here operate best in lightening counter-attacks and this game may not be as explosive.
United have had a lot of low-scoring encounters with the traditional ‘Big Six’ and Leicester, and since Solskjaer took over 18 of 22 such league matches have seen fewer than three goals. At least one team failed to score in 15 of these, including eight of 10 this calendar year.
Both Teams To Score (No)
All three head-to-heads since 2019 have gone the same way, with United winning 1-0 twice and the other 2-0.
Meanwhile, Leicester’s last two outings have seen them lose 2-0 here at the King Power to an in-form Everton, before beating Tottenham by the same scoreline on the road.
Man United To Beat Leicester 2-0
At least one team has failed to score in 11 of the Foxes’ last 13 home league games, including five of their six defeats over this period as four finished 1-0 or 2-0.
Leicester’s home wins have largely come over the weaker outfits as they’ve taken down Aston Villa, Crystal Palace, Sheffield Utd, Burnley, Wolves and Brighton since March.
Meanwhile, Man Utd have won 10 away games on the trot now, and although facing a relatively kind fixture list, they’ve consistently performed better away from Old Trafford in recent months.
