Will Manchester United Challenge for the Top Spot With Two Tricky Fixtures Lined Up?

Leicester – Away

This is a top of the table clash, not many would have predicted such a rise for Leicester City this season but with Jamie Vardy scoring like there is no tomorrow, Leicester actually have a decent chance of winning the game. Remember last season? In that crazy 5-3 win for Leicester, we don’t expect the same crazy goal scoring antics but this could be a tough task for Manchester United.

Vardy has 12 goals to his name and if United’s defence can shackle the England international, the Red Devils might have a chance of escaping this game with a point but with United playing in midweek against PSV in the Champions League and qualification for the group still to be decided, this could be one game where they slip up and Leicester’s amazing run of form would continue. How many would bet against Vardy from scoring in this game?

West Ham – Home

The Hammers have had a much better season that most would have predicted, riding high up in sixth place and having beaten the likes of Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal, Slaven Bilic has done a wonderful job this season for the other club in London. Playing Manchester United away is never an easy task but West Ham have been at their best in most of the away games and this could be yet another tough task for Manchester United.

The Red Devils needed a bit of time and gas to get going against West Brom in their last game and with West Ham having a game plan to disrupt and defend as much as possible, this could be a question of keeping the patience and perseverance. United would have to be at their best but a home game is the best tonic for any club and this should allow United to get the three points against the Hammers but a scored draw wouldn’t be a surprise if it does happen.
