Manchester United vs Leicester City: Sunday, 14:00pm

Manchester United will be looking to extend their home unbeaten run to 17 games when they host Leicester City this Sunday.

Erik ten Hag has transformed Old Trafford into a fortress for Manchester United, with the club last losing at their home back in September.

The Red Devils have won 14 of the following 16 games at the Theatre of Dreams, and only dropped points in draws with Newcastle and Leeds.

In the Premier League, only Manchester City have claimed more points at home than Ten Hag’s side, though it’s United who boast a better defensive record.

Man United have only conceded eight league goals at Old Trafford while scoring 21 at the other end.

Boasting a strong home record has allowed United to force themselves into the title picture.

While Man City and Arsenal lead the way, Ten Hag’s side are just five points adrift and will continue to pile on the pressure with a win over Leicester.

However, picking up a victory over the Foxes is far easier said than done.

While the former Premier League champions endured a woeful start to the season, Brendan Rodgers and his side will arrive at Old Trafford on the back of a three-match winning run.

Moreover, Leicester have gone goal-crazy in their last two outings, beating Aston Villa 4-2 before thrashing Tottenham 4-1.

The Foxes have scored 11 goals in their last four games across all competitions and are seemingly rediscovering their best form.

Recent head-to-head encounters also make for interesting reading. Leicester have won three of the last five meetings, while United have picked up just one win from six.

Sunday’s clash has the makings of a classic and goals are likely to flow with both teams finding the net for fun.

Over 3.5 goals is our main recommendation, with both teams expected to get on the scoresheet.

With regards to individuals, Marcus Rashford is the man to back. The England international has scored four goals in his last four Premier League appearances.
