The final round of Premier League 2019-20 is up and Leicester City will host Manchester United at King Power Stadium on Sunday. Leicester City are placed on fifth position with 62 points from 37 matches whereas Manchester United are currently placed on third position with 63 points in same number of matches.
It’s a do or die game for Leicester City as they need to register a win over Red Devils in order to book their Champions League spot. On the other hand, Red Devils just need to avoid the defeat in this game. Due to superior goal difference, a draw will confirm their seat in Champions League which is starting next month.
In case of draw, Leicester City will still have chance to qualify for Champions League if and only if third ranked Chelsea get defeated by Wolves at Stamford Bridge, which is looking pretty unlikely to happen at the moment. Battle for Champions league among Manchester United, Leicester City, Chelsea is looking pretty dramatic which will certainly increase heart beats of fans.
For Leicester City everything was looking in total control till December last year when they were placed on second position. But everything seems to be going against them from last 20 top flight assignments. With just 5 wins from last 20 top flight assignments, Foxes seem distracted.
City’s declining form saw United’s turnaround in fortunes. Manchester United are on a 13 match Premier League unbeaten run which will certainly increase tension in City’s camp. Although United have dropped points in two of their last three games.
Ahead of this game, Foxes have enjoyed full week rest, which certainly have refreshed them. At home, Leicester City have three wins and four clean sheets from their last quartet of Premier League fixture at King Power Stadium.
