Leicester v Man Utd: Red Devils can down sprightly Foxes


PREMIER LEAGUE analyst Daniel McCulloch (@DMcCulloch1984) takes a look at Super Sunday's showdown between Leicester and Manchester United at the King Power Stadium.

How do you begin to understand a side like Leicester? Since the start of December alone, they won at Stamford Bridge, drawn at Anfield and beaten Manchester City yet lost at home to Cardiff and been knocked out of the FA Cup by Newport.

Manchester United have won eight of their nine games under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and while they've had a little luck in that sequence, at 11/10 with Bet365 I have to fancy them here.

Leicester do clearly have a good record against the Big Six but it's worth noting that despite United's wretched start to the season under Jose Mourinbo they are 13 points clear of Sunday's opponents and an odds-against quote seems perfectly acceptable to me.

Top it up with Marcus Rashford to score at 7/4 (Unibet) – he's notched in five of his nine games since the Norwegian took over, including three of his four away so he also looks value in the Anytime Goalscorer market.

I have loved numbers and sport throughout my life, so betting was a natural step. I started writing my own betting column at university and have continued throughout my adult life. I bet on football, golf and the NFL mainly but two flies going up a wall could also capture my attention. I am a West Brom fan and also follow teams in other sports but I think it's fair to say that no side compare with The Baggies!
