Who will win Leicester vs Man United?

Leicester City vs Manchester United - Head-to-head

Leicester City famously won the League in 2015/16 and have been contending for a Champions League spot in recent seasons.

The question is, are they still capable of being that side or have they slipped back to the pack? Games like this will help answer that question.

Manchester United needed the week off after the frustrating fortnight that preceded it.

It may only be the first quarter of a marathon season, but this clash is extremely important in the context of where these teams go from here. We think that question will remain unanswered when both sides share the points on Sunday morning.
