Manchester United Predictions

United Evaluating Head of Steam Under Ten Hag

What a difference one week can make. Manchester United were plunged into crisis after beginning the 2022/23 season with back-to-back defeats by Brighton & Hove Albion and Brentford. These losses put them in the bottom half of the table, and it was clear that United would need a much more skilled manager to rescue them. Erik ten Hag was probably wondering if he made a mistake by moving from Ajax to Old Trafford. He had been surrounded with smart operators at Ajax.

Successive victories can be a great tonic for any team. After United’s victories over Liverpool, Southampton and other clubs, the mood is brighter in Manchester. It was especially important that they won against arch-rivals, a team who have been regular Premier League title contenders under Jurgen Klopp.

The second victory was less impressive. Although Southampton is a much weaker team than Liverpool, they still could have easily picked up a point Saturday. The difference in the game was Bruno Fernandes’ second-half performance, however the Saints had many chances to win and United won the match largely due to the generosity of their rivals.

It was still a very important victory. It would have been another example of two steps forward and one back if United had come up short at St Mary’s. Ten Hag and his team will be arriving at King Power Stadium with renewed energy, hoping to get ready for the busy couple of months ahead.

Leicester Need to Get off Mark Sooner Rather Than Later

In the 2019/20 and 2020/21 seasons, Leicester were the best of the rest in England’s top tier. Both campaigns ended with Foxes supporters feeling dissatisfied that their team was not selected for the Champions League. This speaks volumes about Brendan Rodgers’ side’s performance. Although it was disappointing to fall out of the top 4, Leicester seemed to be in the top third. The FA Cup was won by them.

It is safe to say that their goals have slowed down since then. After a tough summer, Leicester are not only in the relegation zone, but also at last. Alex Smithies is the back-up goalkeeper for Leicester. Many players are having their heads turned including Wesley Fofana, who is heading to Chelsea and Youri Tielemans, an Arsenal goalkeeper. Kasper Schmeichel, a former club captain has moved to Nice.

It never rains but it pours. Leicester created more than enough opportunities to avoid defeat by Chelsea at the weekend, yet their failure to convert saw them fall to a 2-1 loss to opponents that were reduced to 10 men in the first half. Rodgers is now under immense pressure. A large portion of the fans are in favour of Rodgers being replaced as manager.

Goals on the Table With Both Defenses Still to Fully Convince

Only Bournemouth has conceded more goals this season than Leicester after their 9-0 defeat by Liverpool. Jonny Evans was partnered by Daniel Amartey in the middle of the backline against Chelsea. Although the latter is an acceptable player, his presence in this role marks a significant drop in Fofana’s performance. United should enjoy some success in the transition as Leicester has been struggling with organizational problems for some time.

In some ways though, this fixture is a perfect one for Leicester. They would not have had the same expectations if they were hosting a smaller team, such as a Fulham or Bournemouth. Rodgers might have been resentful of the crowd and they would be more restless.

All of this is possible against United. However, the fact that Leicester face a member the big six reduces their expectations. They may be able to adapt well to whatever adversity comes their way.

Despite all the problems Leicester has, their players still have a lot to offer. Harvey Barnes, Jamie Vardy and James Maddison, who are skilled attackers, can be a problem for any division’s defense. Both teams can score in this game if you go for more than 2.5 goals.
