Manchester United play hosts to Leicester at Old Trafford on Sunday in the Premier League, as the visitors look for a win that would see them crowned English champions for the first time.

Manchester United have enjoyed their last two outings, recording a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace last time out in the Premier League. The Red Devils then made it through to the FA Cup final with a 2-1 semi-final win over Everton, with Anthony Martial grabbing a last-gasp winner.

Arsenal’s draw at Sunderland on Sunday has given the Red Devils hope that they can still claim a top-four spot. Louis van Gaal’s men are five points behind fourth-place Gunners, but have what could be a crucial game in-hand.

For Leicester this game could be a culmination of all their hard work this season. The Foxes moved one step closer to being crowned Premier League champions last time out with a 4-0 hammering of Swansea.

Riyad Mahrez opened the scoring, before Leonardo Ulloa scored a brace and Marc Albrighton sealed the win with a stoppage-time fourth goal. The Foxes know that they now only need to win one of their remaining three games to be crowned champions.

Facts And Figures

Manchester United have dominated the 19 Premier League meetings between these two teams, recording 12 victories, five games have finished in draws and Leicester have won just twice.

It has been a similar story of United dominance in the nine Old Trafford meetings, as the Red Devils have recorded six wins, two games have finished in draws and Leicester have won just once.

United have won eight out of the last ten meetings between these two teams in all competitions, with the Foxes winning just once in that period.

Manchester United have won their last six Premier League games and also kept clean sheets in their last four home games in the top-flight.

Leicester have won six out of their last seven in the Premier League and have also kept clean sheets in six out of their last seven top-flight matches

Team Selection And News

For the home side full-back Luke Shaw and German midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger are expected to miss the rest of the campaign through injury, while young winger Adnan Januzaj is also unlikely to feature as he lacks match fitness.

Leicester central midfielder Matt James has yet to feature for the Foxes this due to injury and is unlikely to feature in this clash. The Foxes may name an unchanged line-up, with top scorer Jamie Vardy suspended. Leonardo Ulloa is likely to continue up front in his place.

Possible Manchester United Team Selection

De Gea, Valencia, Smalling, Blind, Rojo, Carrick, Lingard, Fellaini, Rooney, Martial, Rashford

Possible Leicester Team Selection

Schmeichel, Simpson, Huth, Morgan, Fuchs, Mahrez, Drinkwater, Kante, Schlupp, Okazaki, Ulloa

Match Prediction

Leicester may need the win to seal the Premier League title, but Manchester United are also fighting for a top-four place and I can see this being a tight game. I will have to go for the draw in this clash.
