Man Utd to secure Champions League at Leicester
What a way to end the season. The Premier League’s best shown down will be at Old Trafford where Manchester United and Leicester will fight it out for the final Champions League place. Who will secure the riches? Have a read of our preview here:
Foxes falling away
What has happened to Leicester City? At one stage they looked to be the only side capable of challenging Liverpool for the title, now they appear set to miss out on a top-four spot.
The restart has seen them fall off the pace badly. Since returning to the field they have won only two matches in eight and have two very difficult games remaining.
Mid-week saw them thrashed by Tottenham before a finale at home to United. They will take encouragement from the win against Sheffield United, a vital three points given their situation.
Whether Brendan Rodgers will be able to conjure up a brave last stand remains to be seen but the ever-reliable Jamie Vardy will play a key role. The striker has netted 23 goals in 34 appearances this season and continues to defy his critics.
After the result against the Blades Rodgers admitted a lack of consistency could cost them.
"We have played well since we have come back but not been consistent enough. Tonight we were able to do that. A very good performance,” he told the BBC.
"The result gives us the second-highest finish in Leicester's history. We have two games to go to create some more history."
Vindication for Ole
After looking well off the pace for so long, United could end up finishing in the top four thanks to a wonderful run of form since returning from lockdown.
United have won five of their eight games while remaining unbeaten. They have dragged themselves into the Champions League spots and now posses and exciting team.
Not only has Bruno Fernandes lit up the midfield, but the front three are quick, technically gifted and, most importantly, young. In Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood and Anthony Martial the Red Devils have an attacking trio to build around for the future.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer always said he was building for the longer term, two more wins and he will give himself a great chance of doing just that.
Leicester City v Manchester United betting tip
This one is so hard to call, but with it meaning so much to both teams it is likely to be a very cagey affair. That said, Man Utd only need a point to secure fourth spot, so we are backing this one to end in a draw at odds of 3.55 with 888sport.
