Leicester City Form and Team News

They have played seven games so far, winning two and losing three, also drawing two games. Leicester had made a good start to the season but their last few games have been utterly disappointing to say nonetheless. They are placed in the 13th position as of now. Leicester in the last season was one of the best teams on display with their league showing, they were placed in the top four for most of the season. But then, a very bad last five games in the league were enough to get them down to the fifth position at the end of the season, thus they are now without a champion’s league qualification, but have a Europa League qualification under their belt. They in this season would want to erase whatever was done wrong during the flag-end of the league and start afresh. They are playing against Manchester United in the next match at home on Saturday.

Manager Brendan Rodgers did a decent job while being at the helm last year helping the team finish in the top five at the end of the league, but he could be counting the number of opportunities his team let slip away in the last five games where they have been winless and to make matters worse, they even got kicked out of Champions League qualification after this. He would want this team to continue the season with nothing less than a win here against Man United which could well be the statement in the making for this season. 

Manchester United Form and Team News

Man United have started this season in some style after the first seven games, they have been clinical and not reckless so far. Four wins and two draws to go with a loss from the first seven games is not a bad return. In the last season, Manchester United ignited some fire brand football on certain occasions which gave out the impression that they were truly on the comeback trail, but like the case of Arsenal, the transition is on a never-ending sojourn. Manchester United’s recent form has been that edgy compared to the rivals, also add to the fact that they beat the Leicester City side who they are going to face next on multiple occasions as well. They have won 13 games and lost just three games in the last 17matches they have played whilefour games ended in a draw. Manchester United surely have everything in their favor now, and winning championships should be the only priority from here on.

Cristiano is back in the house!! He is igniting the Old Trafford by scoring goals for fun. Ole with this team is finding it difficult to swap players and owing to this some players are being underutilized. If Sancho is able to hold the reputation of being the force that he used to be in the right wing at Dortmund, then, Man United could be in for a lot of goals down that flank along with help from Cavani, Rashford and CR7 joining them. Talisman Pogba has made a stellar start with seven assists in just the four games played. Bruno too has made an impact with his accurate ball play and control.
