Old Trafford will be the focus of much attention on Sunday as Leicester City go in search of the three points they need to ensure that their Premier League fairy-tale has a happy ending. Standing in their way will be 20-time former league champions Manchester United who also have plenty left to play for this season.

The home side are just five points behind fourth-ranked Arsenal with a game in hand and can still qualify for the Champions League. A win against Leicester would maintain the pressure on Arsene Wenger’s men.

Louis van Gaal’s team have been strong on home soil, having conceded just one goal in their last seven fixtures at Old Trafford. They will also be coming into this game in high spirits after their victory over Everton in last weekend’s FA Cup semi-final.

Visitors Leicester City will have just one objective on their agenda this weekend – gaining the three points they need to secure the Premier League crown. The Foxes only need to match Tottenham Hotspur’s result to win the title but with their rivals not playing until Monday, only a win would see them crowned champions on Sunday.

Claudio Ranieri’s team come into this game on the back of a nine-game unbeaten run which culminated in a 4-0 demolition of Swansea City last time out. They have won their last three games on the road without conceding a goal. With just three points needed from the next three game, the prospects look good for the Italian Coach and his unlikely band of heroes.

Both sides have players out of action but perhaps the most significant absentee will be Leicester’s Jamie Vardy who is suspended for this game.


Manchester United have lost just two games at home this term and Leicester have lost just two games on the road. While it would tempting to back the away side to complete their incredible quest, the statistics point towards a draw.
