Leicester vs Manchester United: Top of the Table Clash! No longer An Upset!

The King Power Stadium will witness the ‘Top of the Table Battle’ as Leicester City hosts Manchester United today in this weekend’s premiership. While this match up directly pips first against second in the league along with bringing back some bittersweet memories from the past, depending on which side you fancy, all eyes will be on one man irrespective, Jamie Vardy. If Vardy scores against United he will break the Premier League record – set by Ruud van Nistelrooy – for scoring in the most consecutive appearances, with his opener against Newcastle last time out representing the 10th league game he had netted in a row equaling Nistelrooy’s record.

Leicester City hope to extend their six-game unbeaten run and four-game winning streak against United today which saw them over threw Manchester city last week and became the league leaders.

However, Manchester United having won 10 out of their previous 11 games against Leicester City remain as the favorites. With 12 goals scored across the two meetings between the sides last season, this game promises to be another intriguing battle. Leicester, who have the league’s deadliest attack (28 goals), have the task of breaking down United, who have the meanest defence (conceding just 9 goals).

Interestingly, Leicester also looks forward to become the first non traditional top five teams to top the table at the beginning of December since 14 years as they are just one point above today’s opponent Manchester United.

Leicester City:
Manager – Claudio Ranieri
Key Players – Jamie Vardy, Riyad Mahrez

Manchester United:
Manager – Louis Van Gaal
Key Players – Anthony Martial, Wayne Rooney

Today’s evening kick-off is something of a good versus evil battle for the football purists.

Can Vardy inspire another exciting attacking display from the hosts to extend Leicester’s unlikely lead at the top or will Van Gaal’s improving back line win out?

We’ll have to wait for the clock to strike 5:30 and catch live action
