Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Manchester United will be aiming to keep their Champions League hopes alive when they take on Leicester City on Matchday 31. The Red Devils did well to beat Tottenham before the international break, with the team regaining a much-needed confidence, but Ralph Rangnick’s men need to keep on making progress if they are to secure a top-four finish. Cristiano Ronaldo is back from international duty, while Mason Greenwood remains on the sidelines.
The good news for the hosts is that Scott McTominay has overcome his injury. The Foxes, on the other hand, are not having a season to remember, with the team sitting in 10th place in the standings ahead of the trip to Manchester. Brendan Rodgers’ troops have already suffered seven defeats on the road this term, and they are unlikely to spoil Man Utd’s party at “the Theatre of Dreams”. Wilfried Ndidi misses out with a knee injury, while Jamie Vardy is a major doubt.
