Man United v Leicester: Hosts to produce another rout of Foxes

| 26.08.2017

Manchester United have started the season in imperious fashion, with successive 4-0 victories leaving them top of the Premier League table. We’re expecting much of the same on Saturday, as Leicester City visit Old Trafford.

The last two meetings between this pair finished 4-1 and 3-0 in favour of the Red Devils. With Jose Mourinho’s men looking increasingly strong at present, the Man United -2 handicap looks generous at 23/10, while there’s 11/2 about United -3.

Meanwhile, there’s an appealing 14/1 on offer for the hosts to win 4-0 for the third time in succession. With Leicester also managing a dismal 10 points on the road last term, this looks an especially good longshot.

However, if you think United could score big, but aren’t as confident about the hosts keeping a clean sheet, the 10/3 on Man United to Score 4+ Goals is a safer alternative.

In the goalscorer markets, Juan Mata looks the dark horse to back. The Spaniard scored home and away against the Foxes last term, en route to reaching double figures. He’s 2/1 to find the net anytime.

As for Romelu Lukaku, the big Belgian has grabbed four goals in his first three games for the club, and can be backed at 2/1 to Score 2 or More Goals in this one.

Finally, with Mourinho’s side having won all four halves of football they’ve played in the Prem so far, the 2/1 for Man United to Win Both Halves could prove popular.

In the match betting, the Red Devils are 1/3 favourites for victory, with 4/1 about the draw, and 9/1 on offer for Leicester to produce a first Old Trafford win since 1998.
