We’re back with a festive Premier League predictions weekend here at BettingTips.net, as Saturday brings us the classic boxing day fixtures. Our dedicated team of experts have put the Turkey aside to bring you the very best Premier League tips, predictions & more.
For our Premier League predictions today, we’re taking a look at the lunch time boxing day clash between Leicester and Manchester United at the King Power Stadium. Below, we’ve provided you with some proper Premier League tips & betting info for this festive fixture in the Midlands.
Last weekend, Leicester beat Jose Mourinho’s Spurs 2-0 in North London, meaning they go into Christmas Day in 2nd place, 4 points short of Liverpool. Despite Leicester’s impressive league positions, however, they’ve still be struggling for home form, which is a concern for Brendan Rogers. Each of their 5 losses this season has been on home turf, with the most recent being a 2-0 home loss to Everton. The Foxes impressive league position is thanks to away form and the fact they are the only side in the league yet to draw a game this season.
How quickly things can change in football – it seems like only yesterday fans and pundits were calling for Ole’s head in the wake of United’s Champions League exit. Yet now, many Premier League prediction experts are starting to talk about them as serious title contenders – and not without reason. Manchester United are undefeated in 7 Premier League games, having won 4 of their last 5. Their most recent outing was a 6-2 thrashing of old rivals Leeds, with defensive midfielder Scott McTominay causing a shock with a record-breaking brace. Can they knock leapfrog the Foxes on Boxing Day?
Perhaps surprisingly, this fixture doesn’t favour Leicester at all, and very much belongs to the Red side of Manchester. Leicester haven’t beaten Manchester United in 12 games, dating all the way back to 2014, when a then newly promoted Leicester City side came from behind to beat Louis van Gaal’s Manchester United 5-3 at the King Power Stadium. Their most recent meeting was on the last day of the 2016/20 season, in game that offered the prize of Champions league football, which Manchester United claimed with a 2-0 win at the King Power Stadium.
Below, we’ve provided you with 3 statistical highlights as well as the results from the last 5 games between these two sides. We’ve used all of this information and more in order to bring you this Premier League predictions weekend here at BettingTips.net.
Having analysed the above information, our Premier League predictions today back an away win for the Red Devils this Boxing Day lunch time.
While our Premier League predictions are in no doubt that Leicester City’s home ground curse will left sooner or later, the tide is unlikely to change against a team they haven’t beaten since 2014. The Foxes may go into this game one place and one point above the visitors, but United are the team in better form. Further more, weaker teams than United have visited the King Power Stadium in recent weeks and come away with 3 points. It’s often been said that Man United are overly reliant on the work ethic and leadership of Bruno Fernandes. However getting players like Scott McTominay, Daniel James and Victor Lindelof on the scoresheet should motive the squad as a whole going into this match. Our betting tip for this Boxing Day fixture is to back an away clean sheet at odds of 3.75 with Bet365.
