Going back to early February, the Foxes were 14 points clear of Man United after 25 games and top four seemed firmly in their grasp, though a starkly contrasting run of results has seen the Red Devils jump up into third, and on form alone you’d expect the 13-time champions to come up with the goods in this one.
Leicester have won just three of their last 13 matches and in order to qualify they may need to do something they haven’t managed all season – beat one of the top six.
They’ve gone D4-L5 in such matches and managed just five goals across those games, with three coming against a woeful Chelsea defence and United will be much harder to break down.
While the hosts have won just three times over the last 13 gameweeks, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men are unbeaten in that time (W8-D5), though a draw last time out against West Ham has applied much more pressure on them than they necessarily needed.
While they can only beat what’s in front of them, it should be noted that the highest placed side that they’ve faced in their last six matches has been Southampton, with whom they played out a 2-2 draw at Old Trafford.
They’re on a run of three consecutive away wins for the first time this season, though with those games coming against relegation battling Brighton, Aston Villa and a Palace side currently on their worst run for nearly three seasons, Brenden Rodgers’ men won’t be too faded by that record.
Under 2.5 Goals
Leicester have seen ‘Under 2.5 Goals’ in five of their nine matches against the current top six, though with three of the exceptions coming against high flying Liverpool (twice) and Man City, we can see this being a cagier affair.
The last two meetings have finished 1-0 to Man United, with both games seeing Marcus Rashford find the net in the opening 10 minutes and then holding out for the result.
United have also seen a maximum of two goals in seven of their last eight against the top six this season since their opening day 4-0 hammering of Chelsea, and if they can get an early goal here they’ll likely shut up shop knowing they only need to avoid defeat.
