Another hot display for Boxing Day is the match between Leicester City and Manchester United on Dec. 26th.
The earliest match of the Boxing Day is the game between Leicester City and Manchester United at King Power stadium of the Foxes. Leicester and Man United have met in a total of 28 matches and ended only 7 of them with drawn results. The Red Devils have more victories with 19 times dominated the Foxes, while Leicester City only got 2 wins.
It is an interesting showcase, but not for the history factor between two sides.
Manchester United and Leicester City literally have no history, but the match between them will be interesting for one factor: race for the title. Leicester is now ranked at the second place on the table followed by Man United essentially.
The showcase will be crucial for the title race and which team wins in the upcoming display will possess the advantage to challenge Liverpool – the reigning champion of the English Premier League.
The home team will miss the service Jonny Evans, Christian Fuchs, and Nampalys Mendy because of suspension. But the Foxes will remain to have the full service of key players including Youri Tielemans, James Maddison, Jamie Vardy, Harvey Barnes, Wesley Fofana, and Ricardo Pereira.
The power of Leicester City will remain to be overwhelming and with the current fierce form, the home team will be a dangerous challenger for the Red Devils.
But Manchester United refuses to be an outsider, neither they accept to join the match on the Boxing Day without a chance to grab 3 points from it. The Red Devils will come to King Power stadium and fight for 3 points – thing that will help them race for the title.
Manchester United has no injuries, no suspension and no drawbacks to bring in the match full squad of best players. The Red Devils will have plenty of choice for their squad, and we will wait for what Ole Gunnar Solskjær does to his squad.
We might see the magical trio of Donny van de Beek, Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes in the midfield. On the wings, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood will remain to be the top options of Solskjaer. Nonetheless, Daniel James might appear on the second half if the attacking outcome of the Red Devils did not run smooth.
Manchester United will have full healthy squad, so their defense will be boosted with some qualified named such as Eric Baily. Scot McTominay can be in the midfield as well if Solskjaer decides to play safe in the upcoming match against Leicester.
Below is the predicted result and the predicted squads for two sides.
