Thoughts From Both Camps

“I think we have to beat them because we are still in the race for fourth position. We cannot allow that they are the champions this weekend at Old Trafford. I think they shall be the champions a week later. We don’t spoil the party, only postpone it a little bit.”

– Louis van Gaal, Manchester United.

“Now is the real chance to win the title. Next season, you never know. It is once in a lifetime. I am pragmatic man and we need three points more. We are fighting to make this dream a reality, but it isn’t yet. I can understand all the happiness around the city, but we have to work. Sunday will be a very tough match and I have a lot of respect for Louis van Gaal and their fans, but we go with the same mentality.”

– Claudio Ranieri, Leicester City.

Contributor’s Pick

According to Head-2-Head statistics, Manchester United have won four and lost one out of their previous six matches against Leicester City but the Foxes have won six of their last seven league matches.

Both clubs are in a rich vein of form and are consistently finding the back of the net, all the while putting up solid defensive performances. Although Manchester United have won their last six home matches in the Premier League, Leicester City will start as favorites and are likely to win by a 2-1 scoreline.
