After an upset loss at home to Leeds United (2;2), Manchester United traveled to the Peacocks. MU played more reliably in defense, although David De Gea had to make a few critical saves. In contrast to the home game, Erik ten Hag's team put the pressure in the final stretch of the match thanks to goals from Rashford and Garnacho - a 2:0 win. The Mancunians have 46 points, just five behind Manchester City and Arsenal, sitting third in the EPL.
This week, the team faced a real test against the strongest defense in European soccer. In the Europa League playoff, MU had an excellent performance against Barcelona at Camp Nou and were close to beating the Blaugrana. That encounter ended with 2:2.
Leicester City did their best if we take a stretch of three matches. Brendan Rodgers' side first drew with a tough Brighton 2:2 at home. After that, the Foxes defeated Aston Villa 4:2 on the road and left no chance for Conte's Tottenham at home. In the 23rd round, Leicester City heavily outclassed the opponent. They produced one of the most unexpected weekend results, 4:1. Thanks to the progress, Leicester City climbed to 13th place in the English league standings with 24 points.
Expert Betting Tips
For the third consecutive match in the EPL, Casemiro should miss as he received a red card in the game against Crystal Palace. Sabitzer, who did not participate in the game against Barcelona midweek, is expected to return to the starting lineup. As both games against Leeds showed, the Austrian could well replace Casemiro, and the midfielder is in good form. We won't see a rotation of MU's squad. Ten Hag likes to choose a lineup that achieves positive outcomes despite the busiest schedule. Leicester will create chances at the opponent's goal, but will the visitors have enough quality to score points at Old Trafford? For the first time in several seasons, MU is a real contender for the league title and cannot lose points against the underdogs. MU will win, and the encounter will be productive.
