Leicester v Man United tips

September 19th, 2014

Leicester welcome Manchester United to the King Power Stadium on Sunday afternoon and the game is live on SkySports 1 from 1.30pm.

United are strong favourites to take all three points at best odds of 7/10 with BetVictor, while the Foxes can be backed at 19/4 with BetVictor and the draw at 16/5 with Bet365.

Leicester have started the season well, with just one defeat and consecutive home draws against Everton and Arsenal.

United beat QPR 4-0 at Old Trafford last weekend and pundits were quick to praise the new look Reds team. But we feel that there are reasons to suggest that result may be false dawn in United’s rise from the flames.

A 4-0 home win with a team packed with forward thinking attacking players against a weak QPR does not warrant the sort of price that United are here, away from home. Especially as they take on a side in Leicester who are keen and confident and will view this game with the same relish as they did for Arsenal’s recent visit.

And in Leonardo Ulloa they have a striker who is in form and scoring goals (3 in 4 games this season). The Argentinian is too big at 9/1 with BetVictor and Paddy Power to score the first goal in this game.

Also, United have gone four league games away from home without winning - and bizarrely they have won just 4 of their last 17 games played on a Sunday, drawing seven.

Having said all this, Wayne Rooney (who tends to score goals in clusers) is in form and has scored in both of his Premier League appearances against Leicester. Take BetVictor or Paddy Power's 9/2 on him scoring first also.

We expect both teams to score here (3/4 with Ladbrokes) and a high scoring draw is not out of the question. Let’s go for another 2-2 draw at the King Power stadium at 16/1 and also have a wager on 3-3 at a massive 90/1 - both with BetVictor.
