Leicester and Manchester United are both aiming to return to their winning ways when they face off at The King Power Stadium on Saturday.

Leicester are without a win in their last four Premier League games, having lost two and drawn two, and they have only won one of their last seven across all competitions.

Their only win during that stretch was a 2-0 triumph at Championship side Millwall in the Carabao Cup. 

Manchester United haven't won in two Premier League games, drawing with Everton (1-1) last time out after losing to Aston Villa (1-0), both at Old Trafford, but they do sit in fourth place with 14 points, just two shy of leaders Chelsea.

Against Everton, Anthony Martial put the Red Devils ahead just before half-time but Andros Townsend leveled in the 65th minute to deny them the full three points.

The Red Devils can, however, take comfort from their away form after picking up seven points from a possible nine. 

Leicester have won the last two editions of this fixture across all competitions, avoiding defeat in the last three, while both teams have scored in all three of those games.

Leicester beat Man United 2-1 at Old Trafford in their last meeting back in May behind goals from Luke Thomas and Caglar Soyuncu. 

Verdict

A close match is expected in East Midlands so we are backing a draw here.
