Leicester City vs Manchester United: Match details
Match: Leicester City vs Manchester United
Competition: Premier League
Date: October 16, 2021
Kick-off time: 3:00 pm, October 16, 2021 (UK time)
Stadium: King Power Stadium
Betting prediction: Leicester City 2-2 Manchester United
Though Leicester City are hardly in good form at the minute, Manchester United are without some key assets for the King Power clash, and a draw could certainly be on the cards here if Jamie Vardy continues his hot form in front of goal. United should be capable of bagging a few given the Foxes’ struggles to start the season. A draw is a decent possibility all things considered.
Leicester City vs Manchester United: Recommended bets
Result/Both Teams to Score: Draw – Yes (10/3 odds)
Given all angles considered here, a scoring draw seems a fair possibility. Vardy is in good form in front of goal, while Cristiano Ronaldo will likely lick his lips at the prospect of getting at a Leicester backline missing some key assets.
Player to be booked: Luke Shaw (12/5 odds)
With three yellow cards already this season and the prospect of coming up against a solid counter-attacking outfit in Leicester City, boasting the likes of Kelechi Iheanacho and Ademola Lookman on his flank, Luke Shaw could well earn his fourth booking of the season.

Leicester City vs Manchester United: Match preview
Leicester City are desperate to get back on track in the Premier League as the Foxes have not won in their last four league fixtures (0-2-2). Brendan Rodgers’ outfit has started slow out of the blocks this season despite their back-to-back 5th place finishes in the last two campaigns.
Jamie Vardy is still managing to find the back the net, however, with the former England international sitting joint-top of the goalscoring charts on 6-goals, level with Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah. The veteran forward will likely be the key for any result Leicester hope to bag on the day.
In contrast, Manchester United are in the very thick of it this season, as expected, sitting in a four-way tie for third along with Manchester City, Everton, and high-flying Brighton. But the Red Devils are winless in their last two league fixtures, including a disappointing home loss against Aston Villa.
Cristiano Ronaldo has nevertheless hit the ground running overall on his return to the club, with a 0.75 goals/match strike rate thus far in the league, though like United, he has drawn a blank in his last two league outings. United also have a serious headache at the heart of their defense, and there is no guarantee they will bag three points here.
Leicester City team news vs Manchester United
Brendan Rodgers will be without James Justin, Wesley Fofana, and Wilfred Ndidi for the vital home clash with Manchester United.
Leicester could be set to have Jonny Evans back in the team, but the Northern Irish international is still listed as doubtful.
Manchester United team news vs Leicester City
Manchester United will be without first-choice center back pair Raphaël Varane and Harry Maguire due to injury, as well as Fred and Edinson Cavani given late international commitments.
Marcus Rashford could make the squad for the first time this season, but Amad Diallo is still unavailable.
