Leicester vs Man UnitedEnglish Premier League, KO: 16:00 Jul 26, 2020, King Power Stadium
THE Premier League concludes on Sunday and there is a mouthwatering match between Leicester and Manchester United at the King Power Stadium.
Both sides are fiercely competing with Chelsea for one of the two remaining Champions League berths but something has to give on Sunday in this final day showdown.
Leicester have seen their quest for Champions League qualification crumble following a damaging run of just two wins from eight since the resumption.
The Foxes have been thumped in each of their last two away games and Brendan Rodgers men come into this bout off the back of a bruising 3-0 defeat away at Spurs last weekend.
Manchester United, meanwhile, saw their 19 match unbeaten run come to an abrupt end during last Sunday's FA semi-final defeat against Chelsea before being held to a 1-1 draw at home to West Ham in midweek.
Having said that, the Red Devils go into the final round fixtures occupying third-place in the Premier League and knowing that a point would be enough to seal a return to Europe's top-table.
Leicester have avoided defeat in 15 of their 18 Premier League games at the King Power this season and a home success on Sunday is priced up at 9/4 with UniBet while the draw is at a best 13/5 with Betfred.
A fourth Premier League away win on the spin for Manchester United – an outcome that would see the Red Devils finish third in the table – is trading at 13/10 with Betfred.
My recommended Bet Builder in last weekend's tussle between Tottenham and Leicester landed and I'm going to take a similar approach at the King power on Sunday.
The combination I like the look of this weekend is over one match goal, both teams to collect at least one card and over five match corners – all of which combined pays 4/5 with Bet 365.
Taking the above-mentioned betting angle would have banked profit across seven of the Foxes eight run-outs since the resumption and it's a punt that would have paid out in four of United's last five league outings.
What's more, 31 of Leicester's Premier League games this season have produced two or more strikes and 33 of United's 37 outings to date have featured over 1.5 goals and given what's at stake here I'm happy to back both teams to pick up at least one card.
I'm also going to delve into the player props market with the view to backing Leicester City centre-half Jonny Evans to attempt over 61.5 passes at 5/6 with Bet 365.
Taking this approach would have banked profit across seven of the Northern Irish defenders last nine appearances for the Foxes and I like the look of a repeat here on an afternoon where Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could take a safety first approach seeing as United are not in must-win territory.
Only Liverpool and Man City rank higher than Leicester for possession stats this season – the Foxes have averaged 55.3% possession over the course of this campaign – and only three players in the division have successfully completed more passes than Evans (2437) this season.
When digging deeper it can seen that the Leicester stalwart has surpassed the 61.5 pass line in 21 of his 37 top-flight appearances this term – Evans attempted a whopping 118 passes away at Spurs last time out – and that adds to the appeal of siding with the aforementioned angle in this crunch King Power clash on Sunday.
