Leicester vs Manchester United Prediction & Match Preview

Leicester City

Man United

21 March 2021 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET FA CUP King Power Stadium

Leicester City and Manchester United take on each other in a highly-anticipated FA Cup game at King Power Stadium. 

The Foxes head into the match following a thrilling 5-0 win over Sheffield United, and we are positive that they will stick to their attacking style of play. 

Maddison and Morgan are both rated doubtful for the game, while Barnes and Justin remain on the sidelines through injuries.

The Red Devils, on the other hand, recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over West Ham United in their last league match. 

Manchester United are enjoying a successful season, and given their attacking potential, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. 

Juan Mata remains sidelined with injury, while Martial, Cavani, and van de Beek should be fit for the match. Anyhow, an entertaining clash is on the cards at King Power Stadium.

Leicester vs Manchester United: Head to Head

The last time the teams played here the game finished 2-2.
Leicester have a poor recent record against Manchester United and have failed to beat them since 2014- that’s going back 14 games ago.
There is a 60% chance to see over 2.5 goals.

Leicester vs Manchester United: Prediction

Both clubs will give their all to have a chance to win some silverware this season and both will also feel that they can forget about the Premier League for a week or two and they are both set to finish in the top four anyway.

Manchester United should have the tools to win this game but they have been carrying quite a load recently and lots of pressure and some fatigue too. That is why we should back the Foxes to get what would feel like a surprise win.

Keep stakes to a minimum but there are always some surprises in the FA Cup and Leicester are also the home side and very good value. Have a look at Jamie Vardy to score anytime. The striker has been quiet lately and that won’t last for long.

Team News:

Kelechi Iheanacho's hat-trick helped the Foxes to a 5-0 win over bottom club Sheffield United last weekend, and their Europa League exit last month means that they have had a week to rest while Man United travelled to Milan.

The victory over Sheffield United following a narrow away league triumph over Brighton & Hove Albion to make it back-to-back wins, bringing a timely end to a three-game winless run across all competitions.

Brighton were also dispatched by Leicester in the last round of this competition, with Brendan Rodgers's side having previously seen off Championship opposition in Stoke City and Brentford before that.

The Foxes have now won six of their last eight FA Cup home games, although the two defeats in that time have both come at the quarter-final stage.

Indeed, Leicester have lost each of their last five FA Cup quarter-finals - most recently against Chelsea last season - and on Sunday will be looking to reach the semi-finals of the competition for the first time since 1982.
