They had also beaten Stoke City and Brentford in Round Three and Round Four respectively by a big margin as well.

After a blistering start to the season, Leicester are on an inconsistent patch having lost a couple of matches in the last five matches. The last couple of matches anyway have seen them winning quite comfortably against Sheffield United and Hove Albion respectively. At home, Leicester have been edgy winning 50 percent of the games played there.

Sidnei Tavares, Dennis Praet, Ricardo Pereira, Cengiz Under, Harvey Barnes, James Maddinson, James Justin and Wes Morgan are the injured players in the Leicester squad. Pereira who played the last game against Sheffield might out the next game owing to the injury.

Our Tipster’s Angle

Considering on basis of the present form, Manchester United might as well cruise through in this knockout fixture. Leicester City have won the last two games but it does not hide the fact that they have been inconsistent of late in the last few games. This might be the start of a turnaround, you never know. This game will have some goals but the team which is best at the back might in turn go on to win.

Tip 1:Manchester United to Go Through

Manchester United are in one of their best phases since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement from the managerial position. They are displaying a great amount of grit and determination going forward in the league and other competitions they are part of. Unbeaten for 14 games now, five wins and five draws in the last ten matches but most importantly, Manchester United have developed a knack for seizing the crucial moments of the game of late. They are unbeaten in the league while on the road being the only team to have done so. Their Head to Head record with Leicester is also something to take note of. 13 wins and four draws with Leicester winning just one game speaks of the dominance the team from Manchester possesses over the team in Blue. Thus we can say, Manchester United are expected to cruise through to the next round. The odds for Manchester United to go through is 1.75 according to the Casumo Sportsbook. 

Tip 2: Total Goals Over 2.5

In the last ten head to head matches between the two squads, seven have ended with the scoreline having the total goals to be more than 2.5. While playing at Leicester, this record is out of the last six matches, four matches have had the total goals to be over 2.5. Leicester City have been prolific scorers across competitions as well having had three out of the last four matches they have played where the total goal count was more than 2.5. While playing at home, in the last four matches, Leicester have had three games where both teams combined scored more than 2.5 goals in total. In this tournament too, Leicester have two of the last three matches when the total goal count read more than 2.5. Manchester United, on the other hand, have scored lesser goals in comparison but their head to head stat with Leicester where they have been utterly dominant proves their mettle for goal scoring in games against Leicester City nonetheless. So we can say the total goal count to be over 2.5 in this fixture. According to the Casumo Sportsbook, the odds for the total goals to be more than 2.5 is 1.83.


Manchester United playing the brand of football they are playing now augurs well for the future and the unbeaten streak underlines the dominance. They are expected to cruise through to the next round given Vardy and co. don’t have other ideas. A cracker of a game on the cards in FA Cup on Sunday awaits us. Summarising on a couple of tips from above.
