Man United Vs Leicester City: Team news, head-to-head statistics, predicted lineups & time

The round feature of the 2022/23 Premier League season will be closing on Thursday, September 1, as Leicester City are eager to battle Manchester United, Newspremises understands.

Leicester City wouldn’t have being at the bottom of the table after four games, but the club’s inactiveness in this summer window might have something to do with their slump.


Manchester United have also had a taste of what it is like to sit bottom of the pile, after losing their opening two games of the season to Brighton and Brentford.

Head to head

The corresponding fixture last season saw Leicester City come from behind to secure a stunning 4-2 victory over United in a result that marked the beginning of the end of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s reign.

Under Erik Ten Hag, however, we might have a fairly different contest for several reasons.

The Foxes can take solace from the fact that they are unbeaten in their past five matches against United in all competitions, winning thrice and drawing twice.

For United, the fact that they have scored in each of the previous 26 meetings against Leicester will also give them some hope that goals will be on the cards.
