Against Spurs in their last outing, goals from Nampalys Mendy, James Maddison, Kelechi Iheanacho, and Harvey Barnes were important in their 4-1 win over Tottenham, as they came from a goal down. Hoping to push up into the top half of the table, a win today will be huge for Brendan Rodgers’ side

Leicester City are in good form coming into today’s match. With great attacking threats up front, Leicester have what it takes to cause an upset at Old Trafford. United however with their impressive home record will be a tough nut to crack for the Foxes. Goals should be scored at both ends with a narrow win for United being the most probable result.
