Ex-Manchester United striker Michael Owen is expecting his former club to come out on top when they travel to the King Power Stadium to face Leicester this afternoon.
The Red Devils know a draw will be enough to secure Champions League qualification but Owen feels that they will grab all three points:
“Despite United drawing two and losing one of their last four games in all competitions, I think they will have too much quality for a Leicester side who must be short of confidence, given their form since the restart.”
“I’m going for a 3-1 win for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men in this crucial top of the table clash.”
As Owen says, neither United nor Leicester are heading into the match in the best of form, with the Foxes having won only two games since the restart.
It could be a cagey affair early on with neither side looking to make mistakes, but with Leicester really needing a win to guarantee a top-four finish, United will probably be able to exploit Brendan Rodgers’ side on the break.
If the game is still level on the hour mark, and the Foxes begin to push forward, you would expect the Red Devils to pick them off and seal the victory.
