Leicester will play hosts to the best side in the league based on current form in Manchester United at the King Power Stadium after an impressive draw against league leaders, Liverpool. Manchester United also will just be coming off the back of a 2-2 draw against Burnley at Old Trafford
Under-fire boss Claude Puel made a huge statement against Liverpool at the Anfield and repaid the faith the management had in him by letting him hold on to the job amidst rumours of his possible replacement by Brendan Rodgers.
That said, Leicester could well be making a point against the top teams this second half of the season.
Before the draw at Liverpool, they had defeated Manchester City and Chelsea and could well be on the way to put a halt to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
That said, Leicester haven’t been too strong at home and would have to improve on that if they hope to claim the final spot for Champions League qualification.
Indeed, they have managed only 14 points in 11 games and can’t be said to have the edge over Manchester United at the King Power stadium.

Solskjaer endured his first setback in his stint as caretaker boss as the Red devils could only salvage a point against a Burnley team that were trashed 5-0 by the other side of Manchester.
Making a case for Manchester United they were facing a team whose Starting XI looked slightly different from the one City had faced and they did pretty well to come back from 2-0 down.
The morale at the Old Trafford is at its highest since the departure of long-time boss Manchester United with more players enjoying their lives at the club now.
This could be seen with Anthony Martial signing a new contract and committing his future to the club. The players would opt on nothing less than a win here as they try to gain in on the top four.
