Description: LEI Vs MUN Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Last chance for Leicester City to nestle their way into the ensuing season of the Champions League
The restart of the Premier League has turned out to be a horrific and calamitous time out in the middle for Leicester City. From torching their way as they regaled in an unprecedented season to sit as high as third place, the club has ended up plummeting all the way down into 5th place with the three month hiatus wrecking havoc upon their season.
Failing to pull up their socks and get their house in order, the wind has been knocked out of the club’s campaign to fast turn into a sinking ship. Along with it, the club has been riddled by injuries in its defensive ambit to see its entire backline sit out the most pivotal period for the club.
From hammering onto a Champions League spot to currently sitting out of the top 4, Leicester City need to put their predicaments to bed one last time this season. When the club goes playing against Manchester United in its final league stage encounter, anything less than the three points could see the club’s aspirations of playing in the Champions League next season be poured cold over.
LEI Vs MUN Dream11 Probable Winner
Where Leicester City need a win today, Manchester United can manage to get away with a draw. With Chelsea losing to Liverpool the last time around, the club is currently in third place by virtue of goal difference.
Given Leicester City’s regressing form and depleted backline, this should be a tie where Manchester United manage to scram their way to a win.

LEI Vs MUN Dream11 Picks
Doling out a makeshift defensive setup didn’t work in Leicester City’s favour the last time around with the club being hit for a horrendous three goals by Tottenham. However, it was a scoreline which could have turned out to be extremely embarrassing had it not been for the side’s goal-keeper with Kasper Schmeichel managing to string together some crucial saves for the club.
Unfortunately for Leicester City, it’s not only the defensive side of the game which has lost touch with itself. The attacking exuberance which had powered the side till this stage has run out of steam with the side having run its race this season.
The club’s tiring legs in attack will accord Manchester United a solid chance to come out with a cleansheet today to see us indulge in the pick of a triad from the side. We begin with Aaron Wan-Bissaka who has the three assists this season with the CB pairing of Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof coming in alongside him.
The last week saw Manchester United’s attempts of spinning out a narrative in their favour of being a stalwart in the Premier League fall flat on its face. The club was bundled out of the FA Cup by Chelsea before going onto only draw 1-1 with relegation threatened West Ham, results which alluded towards the true disparaged quality of the side.
It’s a team which can be reduced into shreds, something which will see Leicester City approach this one with an attacking gameplan. And pivotal to that discourse will be Ayoze Perez who has the 8 goals for the club this season to see him become our first pick from the club.
He’s joined by CDM Wilfred Ndidi who has been handed over an elevated role off late to safeguard his side’s defence at a time when the club is fraught with injuries. Manchester United on the other hand see us opt for Bruno Fernandes who has 7 assists this season inside the space of 3 months with Matic coming up along with him.
Falling behind in the race for the Golden Boot to Ings, for Jamie Vardy this is the last chance to win the coveted prize. Currently on 23 goals, he needs to score twice today to put himself in clear reckoning of walking away with the prize under his arms.
Anthony Martial will meanwhile be our pick from Manchester United after he got his 6th assist of the season the last time around with Marcus Rashford, the club’s top scorer with 17 goals and 7 assists coming in as well.
Captain And Vice-Captain
His 17 goals see Martial captain our team while Bruno is the vice-captain.
