Manchester United - Leicester: prediction "1"

Manchester United meet Leicester in the 31st round of the Premier League. The last game of the Red Devils in the league before the break for national teams was an impressive 3-2 victory as host of Tottenham. It can be said that Cristiano Ronaldo brought the three points for his team with his own hands after his great performance. The defenders of Tottenham did not do their job to protect the Portuguese in the best way and he took full advantage of the opportunity.

With an asset of 50 points, United continues to be among the favorites for the fourth position in the final standings. At the moment, Arsenal has a lead of four points and a game less, but by the end of the season there are still a lot of games to be played. The main difference at the moment between the Gunners and his pursuers is the defensive game. While Arsenal rarely make mistakes in defense, at United and Tottenham this happens quite often.

Leicester also have defensive problems. Injuries from the beginning of the season prevented the Foxes from developing their potential, and Brendan Rodgers never found a solution. In fact, only a well-functioning attack keeps Leicester in a comfortable position around the middle of the lineup. Before the break for national teams, the Foxes recorded their third success in the last four rounds, triumphing 2-1 against Brentford.

So far, Leicester have left defeated by each visit of a rival from the Top 10 and I expect the trend to continue. Since December 2, Manchester United has suffered only one loss to Old Trafford and its performance in front positions is on par. Adding the unconvincing game of the two teams in defense, it will be a big surprise if there is no result match on Saturday. The 2.5-goal line has been jumped in five of Leicester's seven away losses since the start of the season.
