Our Tipster’s Angle

Manchester United are on a winning streak. They are now unbeaten in their last five premier league matches and have also managed to win four out of their last five games at home. But Leicester City has always surprised us all in these crucial matches and has provided many upsets. But considering the recent form of Edinson Cavani and Bruno Fernandes, the Red Devils are having the upper hand in this contest. Considering the recent results, Manchester United is the firm favorite to win this match. 

Tip 1: Total Goals – Over 2.5

In 16 home matches this season, Man United has managed to score 34 goals averaging 2.12 goals per match. They have kept only 11 clean sheets this season in the premier league and have conceded 21 goals at home. Leicester City has been good on the road and has scored 31 goals in 17 away matches averaging 1.82 goals per match. Vardy and Iheanacho have scored 24 goals between them and look to be in great touch. Bruno Fernandes has been in prolific goalscoring form and has provided vital assists this season. The last three matches between these two sides have yielded a total of 10 goals and this match is expected to be a high-scoring one as well. With good attacking players in both the line-ups, the total goals scored in the match are expected to be over 2.5, and 2.02 odds are available for the same on the Casumo sportsbook.

Tip 2: Manchester United to Win

The Red Devils have not lost to the Foxes in their last 12 premier league matches. Leicester City has travelled to Old Trafford 22 times in the top-flight and has managed to win only one of those matches. The last top-flight victory for the Foxes at Old Trafford came back in the 1997-98 season. Manchester United is now unbeaten in its last five premier league matches and will look to extend this winning run. But back to back matches might force Ole Gunnar Solskjær to make changes to the squad and rest a few of his top players. But with the likes of Luke Shaw, Cavani, and Greenwood in great touch, Manchester United is likely to win this encounter against Leicester City and 2.50 odds are available for the same on the Casumo sportsbook.


While Manchester United is the favorite to win this contest, Leicester will try to repeat its FA Cup quarter-final success against the Red Devils. With a potential UEFA Champions League spot on the line, we can expect the Foxes to come out all guns blazing and an exciting contest is expected between the two sides. Summarizing a couple of bets mentioned above

  1. Total Goals – Over 2.5 @ 2.02
  2. Manchester United to win @ 2.50
