Man Utd vs Leicester Prediction 26/08/2017

Manchester United will be looking to maintain their perfect start to the season when they host Leicester City in Saturday evening’s Premier League game.

Jose Mourinho has started the season with impressive back-to-back 4-0 thrashings of West Ham United and Swansea City.

Romelu Lukaku has scored three goals in two games whilst Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial have also scored in both of United’s first two games.

Leicester City were 2-0 winners over newly-promoted Brighton & Hove Albion last weekend but started the season by conceding four goals in defeat to a depleted Arsenal side.

United have been in control of both of their games from the start and I expect the same versus Leicester on Saturday.  The likes of Lukaku, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Pogba, Juan Mata and Marcus Rashford can all have success versus this Leicester defence.

Craig Shakespeare’s defence has some issues.  Robert Huth is out and Wes Morgan is a doubt, which could leave Yohan Benalouane to partner Harry Maguire in the centre of defence.  The Tunisian defender hasn’t looked very good in his limited appearances to date and is expected to leave before the transfer window closes.

I full expect another comfortable win for Manchester United here and find value in the Red Devils leading at the end of both halves.
