Man United need just a draw against Leicester City in order to finish in the top four of the Premier League table but beating the Foxes will be no easy task.
Brendan Rodger’s men have been in fine form for most of the ongoing season but since the resumption, they have not been at their best which, in turn, has given teams like Man United and Chelsea a chance to catch up with them.
And according to pundit Michael Owen, the OT outfit will rely on their attacking quality to ensure that they come out of the match with all three points.
He wrote for BetVictor: “Leicester have now won just two of their last eight games and, after such a poor run of form, only a win against Manchester United will guarantee them Champions League football next season. A draw may be enough but that would require a Chelsea defeat at home to Wolves.
“For Manchester United, a draw or a win would be enough for them to secure a Champions League berth.
“A defeat would see them relying on Wolves beating Chelsea or they would miss out on being involved in the biggest club football competition in world football.
“Despite United drawing two and losing one of their last four games in all competitions, I think they will have too much quality for a Leicester side who must be short of confidence, given their form since the restart.
“I’m going for a 3-1 win for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men in this crucial top of the table clash.”
Not only are Manchester United playing some of the finest attacking football in England right now but at the same time, Leicester City will be without key defensive players like Soyuncu and Ben Chilwell.
There’s no denying that Man United will have the upper hand in this game but with players like Jamie Vardy and Harvey Barnes at his disposal, Brendan Rodgers will be hoping to take the fight to the final minute on Sunday.
Man United still have a shaky defence so there’s every chance the home side will score. But with the likes of Rashford, Martial and Greenwood at his disposal, Solskjaer will be hoping his players can thump a couple during the course of the 90 minutes.
