Welcome to our Leicester City vs Manchester United preview, prediction and head to head analysis. Leicester City find themselves on top of the league after the two clubs ahead of them floundered last week. Can they stay on top? They will need at least a draw here to do so. Manchester United have been slowly closing the gap to the top of the table. A win last weekend puts them just 1 point away. A win here will see them go top. Can they do it?
