Manchester United and Leicester City are set to serve up an open contest in their Premier League clash at Old Trafford. Both teams have shown great potential in attack so far this season, but both still have defensive weaknesses.
Manchester Betting Tips
Manchester United were held to a 1-1 draw at Southampton last time out in the EPL. They struck first through Daniel James’ superb first half effort but were pegged back by the Saints after the restart. The Red Devils have battled with defensive problems all season, but they have suffered just one defeat in those four matches. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men are valued at 1.75 for a win on Saturday, but with just one clean sheet this season, both teams to score should be considered at similar odds of 1.73.
Summer signing Daniel James has settled down quickly at Old Trafford having scored three goals already. The Welsh international should start in attack alongside Marcus Rashford while Anthony Martial is in line to make a return from injury.
Manchester United have a 46-22 edge with 23 draws from 91 previous matches against Leicester City. There has been BTTS in eight of the last 11 meetings with the Red Devils claiming six wins in the last seven fixtures, including the double over the Foxes last season. Daniel James will be the one to watch for Manchester United following his impressive start to life at Old Trafford, and the hosts will also be boosted by the return of Anthony Martial combined with Marcus Rashford who have four goals this season.
So some higher odds tips are for Marcus Rashford To Score First at enhanced odds of 6.50 and Daniel James And Jamie Vardy Both To Score at enhanced odds of 13.00. We are recommending a Over 2 Goals, Over 3 Cards and Over 10 Corners bet at enhanced odd of 5.50.
Leicester City Betting Tips
Leicester came out on top in their previous Premier League match as they triumphed 3-1 at home against Bournemouth. Jamie Vardy bagged a brace for the Foxes with his goals coming either side of a Youri Tielemans effort.
However Brendan Rodgers’ men are also poor defensively and have kept just one clean sheet in the four matches this season. They have struggle on the road with just three wins in their last 10 away matches placing them at odds of 4.50 for an unlikely win on Saturday with a draw priced at 3.75.
Jamie Vardy has hit the ground running this season with three goals in four matches. He is set to continue in attack with the impressive James Maddison and Youri Tielemans both likely to feature in midfield. They will all need to be on form for this match as Leicester City have lost 5 of their last 6 away matches against Manchester United in all competitions.
If Jamie Vardy provides the spark in attack, troubling Utd’s defence with his pace and directness, in combination with Youri Tielemans and James Maddison in good form, the visitors may have enough to cause United some problems. We are recommending both teams to score and United to win at odds of 3.40. Our correct score recommendation is for Man Utd to win 3-2 at great odds of 23.00.
