Preview & Predicted XI: Leicester City v Manchester United

After a very impressive win against QPR we must now concentrate on getting 3 points against a tough Leicester City side but one that I think we will beat comfortably.

Leicester have had a very good start to the season and have put in some impressive performances especially against Everton and Arsenal at the King Power Stadium. They are a team full of energy and pace with a lot of former United players within the squad and look to have found a really good striker capable of scoring goals in the Premier League with the Argentine striker Leonardo Ulloa. Ulloa has pace and is very good in the air and I can see him causing a few problems for our defence but overall our defence should come out on top against the Argentine striker. This is a Leicester team that is used to winning and it appears they’ve taken that into this season  in a much tougher division they’ve kept the squad pretty much the same as it was last season which I believe has really helped them so far.

After the great win against QPR I can see the same team stating against Leicester. Di Maria will be crucial for us this weekend his pace will stretch a Leicester defence which doesn’t really have that much Premier League experience, he will be a very big problem for Leicester and I think he will be directly involved in most of our attacking play. I can see Daley Blind doing a great job keeping our midfield calm against an energetic Leicester side and breaking up the play will be so important. Robin Van Persie is yet to score this season but against Leicester its a great opportunity for him to get going for the season and hopefully we will see the best of him again his movement will be very difficult for the Leicester defence. Falcao will more than likely start on the bench again as he continues to build his fitness again like Van Persie I can see his movement causing a lot of problems. I think Tyler Blackett deserves a lot of praise for the way he has come into the side and for such a young player he has been arguably our best centre back so far this season. He will be very important his strength against Ulloa and Nugent will be a massive help for us.
