5 Reasons Why Manchester United Will Beat Leicester This Weekend

Leicester City 5-3 Manchester United

Back in September Leicester City pulled off one of the upsets of the season as they came from 3-1 down to beat Manchester United 5-3 at the King Power Stadium.

With this in mind you are probably confident of a Manchester United victory this weekend. Which may interest you in putting some money on them. You may wish to do so using any of the betting sites listed here.

United should be confident ahead of December and January fixtures

Tag: Manchester United Fixtures @ 12:41 pm

Manchester United are staring at a very difficult set of Christmas and New Year fixtures which could see the club one step closer to regaining the Premier League title if they manage to get through the matches without losing a game.

United travel to Swansea City for their next fixture before Newcastle United and West Brom make visits to Old Trafford before the end of December.

Knowing where to go online to find cheap sports tickets for sale will be vital ahead of January with United going away to West Ham United in the FA Cup before the mega clash at home against Liverpool and a trip to Tottenham. Wigan away and Southampton at home sandwich these ties.

Match Preview: United Seek Vital Away Win at Newcastle

Last weekend, three defensive lapses, unfriendly woodwork, and a furious comeback that fell short saw Manchester United fall at home against Tottenham.

A home defeat is hard to take no matter how it happens, but when said failure is coupled with both of your primary title rivals winning away from home, it’s best to avoid take a peek at the league table, even if you’re not nearly as far behind as it might feel.

Such defeats also increase the importance of winning away from home, so today’s trip to Newcastle needs to be more profitable than the last two trips to the stadium formerly known as St. James’ Park. A draw today would certainly be a much better result than January’s 3-0 defeat, but with Chelsea and City both winning easily at home yesterday, a mere point wouldn’t be much to celebrate.

Matchday Live: Everton v. Manchester United

After the heart-wrenching way last season ended for all associated with Manchester United, the new season couldn’t get here fast enough.

It hasn’t been easy to relive the end of last season countless times through adverts, montages, and other unwelcome but unavoidable reminders, and reliving them many more times throughout this season won’t be easy either.

However, optimism that last season’s bad memories can be put in the back of the mind should be high. Sure, United haven’t signed that midfielder that many feel is required, and big-money targets Eden Hazard and Lucas Moura opted for other options, but the signings of two top talents in Japanese star Shinji Kagawa and one Robin van Persie have signaled some serious intent and generated a great deal of excitement and anticipation ahead of tonight’s season-opening visit to Everton.

Will There Be Last Day Luck or Disappointment for United?

Right now, there are many, many, many Manchester United supporters around the world hoping for good fortune today.

The Premier League title hangs in the balance, but the likeliest outcome is not one that favors United. But you know the saying, it’s not over ‘til it’s over. Anything is possible today.

Of course, United need to take care of business themselves while hoping for that bit of good fortune elsewhere, and that won’t be an easy task. Sunderland, after having quite the upturn in form after replacing Steve Bruce with Martin O’Neill in December, enter the season’s final day having not won any of their last seven league games. But they took four points from City this season, and United’s home win in November was anything but convincing.

Manchester United: De Gea, Jones, Evra (C), Ferdinand, Evans, Valencia, Young, Scholes, Carrick, Giggs, Rooney

Sunderland: Mignolet, O’Shea, Bardsley, Bramble, Turner, Gardner, McClean, Colback, Vaughan, Sessegnon, Campbell

Will United deliver decisive blow in derby epic?

In case you weren’t aware – and if you weren’t, you’ve been living under a giant rock in the remotest of places – there’s a match of some importance tonight in Manchester.

The Premier League title race has been a two-team tussle between United and City for much of the season, and it’s been expected for some time that it could all come down to tonight’s showdown at the Etihad. And after many a twist and turn, we’ve finally reached the match everyone’s been waiting for, and it stands to have as much meaning as many thought it would.

Is it the most important match in Premier League history? Many have billed it as much. While that might be up for debate, it certainly has an argument for being the most important Manchester derby of all time.

It’s been previewed from almost every angle possible, many a statistic has been thrown out, many quotes have been given and analyzed. Along with the thousands packing into the Etihad tonight, millions upon millions around the world will be watching, United supporters, City supporters, neutrals.

Will it live up to the hype and be a classic? That would give people more to talk about, but when it comes down to it, the result is all that matters. For United, a draw would do, but United are going for the win, as they should.

Will United Leave It Late against Everton Again?

For Manchester United, the equation for the next two games is pretty simple. Defeat Everton today and City next Monday, and the Premier League title goes to Old Trafford once again.

Manchester United: De Gea, Rafael, Ferdinand, Evans, Evra, Valencia, Carrick, Scholes, Nani, Rooney, Welbeck. Subs: Amos, Jones, Smalling, Giggs, Park, Young, Hernandez.

Everton: Howard; Hibbert, Jagielka, Heitinga, Distin; Osman, Neville, Fellaini, Gibson, Pienaar; Jelavic. Subs: Mucha, Stracqualursi, McFadden, Cahill, Gueye, Barkley, Anichebe.
