There is a lone English Premier League game taking place on Thursday night and we take a look at the match between Leicester and Manchester United from a betting angle.
Leicester have made a terrible start to the season and have only taken 1 point from their opening 4 matches. They began their campaign with a 2-2 draw at home to Brentford, but have followed that with 3 successive losses including a 2-1 home defeat to Southampton and a 2-1 defeat to Chelsea in their last match.
One thing about Leicester games this season is that they have been entertaining and over 2.5 goal backers would have collected in all 4 matches and both teams have scored in all 4 of the games as well.
Manchester United have climbed to 12th on the table after a slow start which saw them lose their opening 2 games including a 4-0 hammering away at Brentford. They followed that up with a 2-1 home win over Liverpool before edging Southampton 1-0 on the road. Three out of the four Manchester United games have had 3 goals or more in them.
Leicester won this fixture 4-2 last season and the reverse fixture at Old Trafford finished 1-1. The head-to-head stats also indicate that you are going to get plenty of goals as both teams have scored in the last 4 matches and over 2.5 goals has arrived in 3 of the last 4.

Leicester City 95/40
Manchester United 11/10
Suggested Bet: Manchester United win at 11/10
Manchester United look to have turned the corner under their new manager and can take advantage of a leaky Leicester defence to grab all 3 points.
If you are looking at playing the goals markets the 5/8 that there are over 2.5 goals is probably a bit short for my range of bets and I would prefer over 3.5 goals at 15/10.
Were I looking to back a Correct Score Line here I would be going Leicester 1, Manchester United 3 priced at 13/1 and in the Goal Scoring Market I like Jamie Vardy to score at Any Time at 17/10.
