Manchester United are on their merry way to King Power Stadium after two consecutive wins for their match against Leicester City this Friday, September 2. As Manchester looks for their third win, the Foxes need to fend them off if they want to leave 20th place and earn their first win. Before Manchester United collected their two wins, they unexpectedly lost to Brentford, so many doubted them ahead of their game against Liverpool. Lo and behold, it ended 2-1 in favor of Man United! After that, they were also victorious against Southampton, so it sure is looking like Manchester’s luck is turning up. New head coach, Erik ten Hag, now has better hope and confidence in his team, especially after their rather shaky starting matches. Opening season ‘22-’23 in a slump, the Foxes’ condition and morale aren’t getting better with the persistent speculation about their main players’ performance. However, that still doesn’t cover why the majority of their men are underperforming. The only player we see standing out and performing efficiently right now is James Maddison, who unfortunately is suffering a minor injury at the moment. We’re sure coach Brendan Rodgers is desperate for Maddison to return as soon as possible, but until then, there’s only so much he can work with. Looking into their history, their last five fixtures to be exact, Leicester remains undefeated by Manchester United ever since December 2020. Leicester won three of those five, and the remaining two were draws. The question now is, will they be able to keep that undefeated streak, or will Manchester United reap a sweet victory after almost two years? In the end, we have to look at the now, the patterns, and the performances. While there is a win waiting for Leicester right around the corner, we’re positive they won’t be getting it from Manchester. Man United is playing with certain confidence right now after getting their first victory from their bitter rivals, Liverpool. With Maddison missing from the roster and other players struggling to find their place, it’s Manchester United’s game 3-1. 3 AM Philippine Standard Time, 2 September 2022. King Power Stadium, LEI.
