Leicester City v Manchester United Premier League Betting Preview 16/10/2021

Leicester City v Manchester United

After disappointing form before the international break, Leicester and Man United will see this fixture as a chance to turn their respective fortunes around in the Premier League. Leicester are on a poor winless run and sit 13th in the table, while United are fourth and two points off league leaders Chelsea. This match will kick off at 3p.m on Saturday at the King Power Stadium.

Team News/Form

Leicester were in poor form before the international break, as they recorded back-to-back 2-2 draws against Burnley and Crystal Palace. Man United are also struggling for form, as they gave up a 1-0 lead and drew 1-1 with Everton in their most recent fixture. It was the third loss in four for Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s side in all competitions. Leicester may be boosted in defence as Jonny Evans could return to the squad following a foot injury. The Foxes’ will be without Wesley Fofana (ankle), Wilfred Ndidi (thigh) and James Justin (knee). For United, Harry Maguire, Marcus Rashford and Amad Diallo may return, although Raphael Varane (abductor) is ruled out until late October.

Matchwinner Betting Odds

The matchwinner odds for Leicester vs Man United will yield some good returns this weekend. United are the favourites to take all three points due to their 29-match unbeaten run away in the Premier League. Matchbook will offer the best odds of 23/20 for an away win. Odds on Leicester to win at the King Power are lower, with VBet offering 67/25 for a home win. Given the Foxes’ current form, this outcome is unlikely, as they are winless in six of their last seven in all competitions. The Midlands side have also failed to win at home in their last three. For the best value this Saturday, back a draw between Leicester and United. The Red Devils have struggled against Leicester in recent meetings. They have lost two and drawn one of the last three head to heads. Brendan Rodgers’ side have also drawn three of their last six in all competitions, showing they can hold out for a draw. At 11/4 odds, Betfred will provide generous returns for a stalemate at the King Power.

BTTS Betting

Additional value can be found in both teams to score market in the Leicester vs Man United fixture. Recent meetings between these sides have produced plenty of goals, and they have looked shaky in defence recently. There are decent odds for BTTS No, with BetVictor offering 13/10 a goalless draw or for just one team to find the net. However, this is unlikely as the last three meetings between Leicester and Untied have seen BTTS. Also, the Red Devils have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last seven, and Leicester have just one shut out in eight of their last nine. Therefore, Mansion Bet’s odds of 77/100 represent the best value in the BTTS market.

Anytime Goalscorer

The anytime goalscorer market is definitely worth a punt this Saturday with goals expected. Cristiano Ronaldo was surprisingly left out for United’s 1-1 draw with Everton, and Solskjær is unlikely to make the same mistake again at the King Power. Ronaldo was in top form in the internationals for Portugal, netting four goals in two matches. STSBet will provide the best odds for another Ronaldo goal at 11/10. Leicester talisman Jamie Vardy has provided a rare bright spark for the Foxes this season, and he is our anytime goalscorer pick this weekend. Vardy will be raring to go after the international break as he has scored four goals in his last three Premier League matches, including a brace in the 2-2 draw against Burnley. At 2/1 odds, provided by Bet365, there is decent value on the Foxes’ forward to hit the net again.

Leicester will be hoping to spring another surprise against a wounded Man United on Saturday. Both sides will be desperate for a win to end their poor spells of form, which could lead to an exciting match up between the sides.
