Leicester City vs Man Utd Team News, Tactical Analysis
Leicester City vs Man Utd Preview, Predictions, Team News: Here is some injury and suspension news coming out from both teams. Let’s also understand how the result of this game will be affecting the rankings of both teams in the English Premier League:
Coach Claude Puel will miss CB Robert Huth and CMF Matty James for this big game against Man Utd due to injuries. Striker Jamie Vardy and Winger Riyad enjoyed rest for recent games, thus, they will be ready and fit for this clash against Manchester United. They are currently in the 8th position with 26 points. As they are only one point ahead of in-form Everton, they cannot afford a defeat or draw. A victory will not promote them up on the table but they will get closer to their goal of entering top four positions.
Man Utd will be entering the field without CB Eric Bailly, DMF Michale Carrick and Marouane Fellaini due to injuries. Paul Pogba’s return is confirmed. We are hoping not to see much rotation as that strategy failed earlier for Man Utd. Manchester United is on 2nd rank with 41 points. They are only three points ahead of Chelsea and 11 points behind the first rank. In order to continue their chase towards number one position, a victory is a must here. A defeat will give Chelsea an opportunity to bring them down.
