Home Fans Nervous About Relegation, as Leicester City Host Manchester United on Thursday
With a win in their previous game, (2-1) against Chelsea, Leicester will likely be in a positive frame of mind.
Also, with an unfortunate Leicester that has not managed to win in their last League so far, Brendan Rodgers’ men form is worryingly poor. They should solve their trend if they don’t want to occupy the lasts places in the League Table. They currently stand twentieth in the League, with one point for a total of 0 wins, 3 losses and 1 draws having drawn one game and lost three meetings.
Playing at home, Leicester have drawn one game and lost one game.
Leicester City will have 4 points so far this season, should they secure a win.
Good Attacking Performance
Leicester have a good scoring record this season, with six netted so far. This season, their stand-out attacking players have been James Maddison (2), Harvey Barnes (1), and Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall (1). Brendan Rodgers will know the risks of constantly leaking goals throughout the season, with 10 goals conceded so far. He needs to find a way to shore-up the defence, in order that opponents are unable to take advantage of this.
Leicester are missing three players through injury or illness. This will affect Brendan Rodgers’s selection choices significantly.
Manchester United have so far accrued six points in this season of the Premier League
Man U come to this match on the back of a 0-1 away loss against Southampton at St. Mary’s Stadium.

Man U have won one game and lost one game of their two League matches away from home this season.
A victory for Manchester United would put them on 9 points.
Injury and illness have depleted Erik ten Hag’s Man U and they will likely be missing five key personnel for Thursday’s match.
