Can the Foxes thwart Solskjaer?
<div><div><div><div id=":qx"><div id=":qw"><div dir="ltr"><h2>Man Utd vs Leicester</h2><p><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><strong>Saturday, September 14, at Old Trafford</strong></a></p><p>Leicester have made an excellent start to the new season and they remain unbeaten, with two wins and two draws from their opening four games. That has left them third in the table, and they should be in fine spirits after beating Bournemouth 3-1 last time out. They seized a crucial point away at Stamford Bridge last month, so they should not be daunted by the prospect of a trip to the Theatre of Dreams. Man Utd started the season in sensational fashion by thumping Chelsea 4-0 here, but they have since suffered an alarming slump in form. They drew away at Wolves, lost at home to Crystal Palace and then drew away at 10-man Southampton last time out.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Man Utd could be without star midfielder Paul Pogba after he limped off during the Southampton game and missed France’s Euro 2020 qualifiers this week. Jesse Lingard and Aaron Wan-Bissaka also withdrew from England duty, while Anthony Martial has been missing too. They are all minor injuries and that quartet could all return, but it is not yet known whether Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will risk them. Eric Bailly and Luke Shaw remain long-term casualties.</p><p>Leicester have a pretty clean bill of health and star striker Jamie Vardy should be raring to go in this game. He retired from international football a while ago, so he is not on England duty, and he should be full of energy for this match. James Maddison is in the England squad, as is Ben Chilwell, but they were both unused substitutes in the 4-0 victory over Bulgaria at the weekend. Youri Tielemans has been starring for Belgium during the international break, but he is young and he should recover in time to line up alongside Maddison in this game.</p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>Leicester are the huge underdogs to win this game, priced as high as 5.25 (17/4) with Betfair. That might tempt some people, as they are above Man Utd in the league and playing well under Brendan Rodgers. It is worth noting that Man Utd beat the Foxes home and away last season, both by a one-goal margin. It therefore looks tempting to give Leicester a +1 Asian handicap in this game and see if they can leave Old Trafford with a result. However, the odds have decreased a little this week, so Leicester +0.75 might make a more appealing option now.</p><p><strong>Tip: <a href=";a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Bet365">Leicester +0.75 Asian handicap at 1.85 (17/20) with Bet365</a></strong></p></div></div></div></div></div></div>
