Leicester vs Man United - is the Red Devils revival for real?
What Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers would give for a repeat of the last time both sides faced off at the King Power Stadium where the Foxes ran out 4-2 winners. The 49-year-old will be aware that a defeat against United on Thursday would sharpen his detractors daggers with his Leicester side yet to find their groove in the new season.
The ‘Foxes’ manager’s cause won’t be helped by the departure of Wesley Fofana to Chelsea with the 21-year-old moving to London for an ‘undisclosed sum’ amid a hint of bad blood from defender suggesting that all may not be well in the Leicester dressing room.
James Maddison is a doubt with a hamstring problem but Brendan Rodgers is hopeful the in-form midfielder will start. Ricardo Pereira and Ryan Bertrand are ruled out but there are no fresh injury concerns for the home side.
Erik ten Hag cut a happier figure speaking in the pre-match press conference and with the transfer window closing at the end of Thursday. New recruit Antony won’t be ready for the game on Thursday but it looks like Portuguese striker Cristiano Ronaldo will in fact be staying at Old Trafford.
When asked whether Ronaldo would remain with United ahead of their trip to Leicester City earlier on Thursday, manager Ten Hag replied: “It is clear. We need quality players and you need more to cover all the games to keep the consistency going. That’s what we strive for.
“We still need to strengthen the offensive department because we have many games to cover.”
Prediction: Leicester 1-Man United 3
