Leicester vs Manchester United Prediction, Tips and Match Preview of the English Premier League match on Sunday, 26 July 2020. Scheduled kick-off 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET at the King Power Stadium.
Another virtual final the PL has to offer in its final game week. Both these teams are on the precipice of qualifying for the Champions League, and need a win in this final fixture in order to do that.
As such, only one of these two will take part in Europe’s premier competition – provided Chelsea will at the least secure a draw against Wolves at the Stamford Bridge, which they are expected to do so.
Both squads have enormous attacking talent at disposal, and will be unleashing all they have in search of the three points. Considering the pressure both teams are under, and the CL spot at stake, expect goals to come from both teams this Sunday.
However, considering the overall form of the Foxes in the last several weeks (which has been quite unimpressive), as opposed to the long unbeaten run of the Red Devils in the league, expect Manchester United to once again thrive under pressure, and finish in the top-four of the table.

Leicester vs Manchester United: Prediction
Brendan Rodgers’s men lost 3-0 on the road the last match-day, against Tottenham. In the meanwhile, the Devils were held to a 1-1 draw at home by West Ham the past game week.
As things stand, Solskjaer’s men seem to be the better squad. They have lost just once in their last 21 fixtures, and that had come in the FA Cup, against Chelsea. They are also on a four-match winning run on the road, and are on a 12-fixture unbeaten run as well away from home.
In addition, they had won the reverse fixture 1-0, and are on a three-game winning run against this rival. They had also registered 17 of the past 18 overall h2h wins, and are unbeaten against this opponent in the last six years.
Also note that, they have lost just once at this venue since 1995. Taking into account these observations, expect Manchester United to deliver this much-needed win this Sunday.
However, understand that this is a must-win game for Rodgers’s men as well, and moreover the fixture is at their own backyard. No way are they going to just move over for any rival.
Count on them to put forth one of the best displays of their season, and with the likes of Jamie Vardy up top, expect them to slot in at least one goal in this high-pressure game.
