Leicester City vs Manchester United Preview
Having twice let a lead slip to eventually draw 2-2 here in December’s league visit to this stadium, it is hard to see Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team leaving themselves anywhere near as open against the Foxes on Sunday..
Indeed, they have conceded just three goals in their last 11 matches in all competitions and kept seven clean sheets in 10 on the road – including each of the last five in a row.
However, with only five goals to their name in seven matches, the guests also don’t seem particularly likely to really go for the jugular themselves in what is likely to be a closely-fought quarter-final.
