Leicester vs Manchester United, EPL 26.12.2020

Manchester United travel to the King Power Stadium for an early kickoff Boxing Day Premier League match. The game is primed to be an intriguing one and we will delve into some betting tips that will be of interest to punters here.

LEICESTER CITY

The Foxes brought their A-game last weekend in London and it was good enough to deliver a shock 2-0 win over fellow contenders Tottenham, with their mercurial talisman Jamie Vardy getting his 11th of the season to lead the race for the golden boot. That win was enough to elevate them the second spot on the log, 4 points adrift of league leaders Liverpool.

This was an excellent response from the Foxes following their own 2-0 home loss to Everton in their prior game in a game in which they looked clueless with the ball despite enjoying the lion’s share of possession.

This is a tough assignment for Brendan Rodgers side against a Red Devils outfit that boasts of a 100% record on the road this season but they are determined to make the top 4 this time after narrowly missing out last season.

MANCHESTER UNITED

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s troops had a rather shaky start to the season which put the coach under all sorts of pressure with a section of fans calling for his head. However, they have put up an impressive run of form that has seen them climb up the ladder into the third spot, just a point behind Leicester, but with a game in hand.

They have been excellent on their travels winning all six games and they appear to have turned the corner with their home performances too, winning their last couple of league games at Old Trafford, including the thrilling 6-2 win over Leeds in their last league assignment.

A top 4 finish is still a priority for Ole. A win here will, however, send a strong message of their intentions to challenge for the title in the long run.

LEICESTER V MAN UNITED BETTING PREDICTIONS

It’s incredible that the Red Devils have not only won all their six away games on the league but that they’ve done so, coming from a losing position in all six games. They looked really good while putting six past Leeds last weekend, although it would be fair to say, the visitors really played into their hands. We expect a different approach from Rodgers and his charges. They are more disciplined defensively and will not afford them as many bites on the cherry. Recent meetings between these teams actually point to a potentially close encounter rather than a goal-fest. In the scheme of things, we expect more of the same and we are going for Under 3.5 goals @ 1.50 with Betway as our first tip here. By the way Betway is one of our best betting sites in Ghana.

Ultra-defensive games tend to result in a flurry of bookings either way. Each of the last three league meetings here have resulted in 7 total bookings. The no-nonsense Mike Dean, who has been dishing out cards like Santa Claus dishing out Christmas gifts, is the centre referee assigned to this game. We are backing Over 4.5 bookings @ 2.12 at Betway betting app as our final tip.
