The highlight of this weekend’s Barclays Premier League program is undoubtedly this top-of-the-table clash between Leicester City and Manchester United at the King Power Stadium.

Leicester City the real deal

With over a third of the season gone, it appears that Leicester City are not going anywhere. In fact, while the main contenders keep dropping points, Leicester City keep winning and are now sat proudly on top of the Premier League table.

During his first 13 games in charge, Italian Coach Claudio Ranieri has defied the expectations of even the most optimistic Foxes fans. He has unleashed the full attacking potential of the team, resulting in a 28 goal haul – the best of any side in the league.

On Saturday, the Foxes have a chance to extend their lead at the top of the table when they host second-place Manchester United. The team from the East Midlands have won their last four Premier League games and are unbeaten in six.

United back in business

Louis van Gaal can take Manchester United to the top of the Premier League table with victory over Leicester on Saturday. After a difficult couple of seasons for a team that once enjoyed success on tap, it seems that normal business is close to being resumed at Old Trafford. However, the style of football has not been to everyone’s taste and the Dutch Coach still has his critics amongst the fan-base.

The Red Devils come into this game on the back of a 2-1 win at Watford that completed a run of five games without defeat and lifted the side to second place in the Premier League table.

United will be without Phil Jones, Ander Herrera, Antonio Valencia and Luke Shaw for this clash.


Both teams have scored in all but one of Leicester’s home games. The table-topping team are the league’s top scorers but have conceded more than any other team in the top 15. You can back Both Teams to Score at 3/4 with Betfair.
