Who: Leicester v Manchester United
When: Sunday 5th February, 16.00 UK time
Live on: Sky Sports 1

Leicester have yet to score a Premier League goal this year as their relegation fears deepen, and they host a Manchester United team unbeaten in domestic league action since mid-October.

A 1-0 defeat at Burnley in midweek condemned Leicester to a third consecutive league defeat and they last claimed three points when beating West Ham 1-0 in their final fixture of 2016. The Foxes now return to the King Power Stadium where they also beat Manchester City 4-2 during December and are offered at 5.00 to win this fixture. Odds of 13.00 are also available for Leicester to complete another 1-0 home victory on Sunday.

Jamie Vardy has failed to score a goal for Leicester since claiming a hat-trick in that win against City although he has been subsequently suspended for three matches. The England international netted the opener in the corresponding fixture last term and is priced at 9.00 to be First Goalscorer in this match plus 7.00 to net in a home victory.

Vardy is also available at 3.25 just to feature on the score sheet while Islam Slimani could return for this clash following a groin injury, and he is quoted at 4.00 to repeat his goal from the win against West Ham.

Manchester United will visit the King Power Stadium will the aim of extending a current fourteen game unbeaten sequence in league action although they drew their second successive league match at Old Trafford in midweek when involved in a 0-0 stalemate with struggling Hull. Yet United have claimed ten points from their latest four league matches on the road and are priced at 1.67 to win this contest plus 3.25 to score exactly 2 goals as per their three away victories during December and January.

In each of those three away wins, Zlatan Ibrahimovic featured on the score sheet and he is offered at 2.38 to score a goal in another away success besides being offered at 4.50 to be Last Goalscorer for the sixth time since the beginning of December.

With Juan Mata opening the scoring twice already this year, odds of 8.00 are available for the Spaniard to become First Goalscorer whereas Paul Pogba has claimed three competitive goals from mid-December onwards and is offered at 3.25 to net in this match.

Odds of 6.50 are being quoted for this game to finish in a 1-1 draw as per the corresponding fixture last season while Leicester are available at 2.50 to score exactly 1 goal and 7.50 to win by one clear goal. Manchester United can be backed at 3.50 and 4.50 for one and two goal winning margins.
