?THE ANALYST: Man United v Leicester betting tips?
By Danny Higginbotham, The Analyst
UNITED’S pace and power give them the edge in open play but it is from corners that I really fancy them against Leicester.
Just look at who comes steaming into the box. Lukaku, Pogba, Bailly, Jones and possibly Fellaini.
With no Robert Huth, Leicester will struggle to contain that battery of big men.
ADD TO YOUR BETSLIP: United to score from a corner, 3/1
- Manchester United have lost just two of their 22 Premier League meetings with Leicester City and only one of these came at Old Trafford: 0-1 in January 1998.
- The Red Devils drew the most Premier League home games last season (10), but started their 2017-18 campaign with a 4-0 rout of West Ham United.
- Leicester City have scored in all but one of their 15 Premier League matches under Craig Shakespeare and striker Jamie Vardy has scored in eight of these games.
- Manchester United, who have won their opening two Premier League games by a four-goal margin, haven’t won three consecutive league games by such a margin or greater since October 1907.
- Romelu Lukaku will be looking to become the first Manchester United player to score in each of their opening three Premier League appearances for the club.
- Lukaku has scored 15 goals in his last 11 Premier League appearances at home (13 in 10 for Everton, two in one for Manchester United).
- Henrikh Mkhitaryan has already registered four assists in two Premier League games this season, three more than he managed in the whole of last season; the Armenian midfielder could become the first player in Premier League history to assist two goals in three consecutive games if he does it again versus Leicester.
- Juan Mata scored for Manchester United in both of their home and away victories against Leicester City in 2016-17, whilst also assisting in their 4-1 win at Old Trafford.

- Since Craig Shakespeare took charge of his first Premier League game against Liverpool at the end of February, matches involving Leicester City have seen more goals than any other Premier League side – 53 goals in total (29 scored, 24 conceded).
