LEI vs MUN Fantasy Prediction: Battle for second spot set to make the Christmas period a riveting affair.
Stuttering in form, Leicester City were not only in dire need of three points in the Premier League but also of an emphatic result which would reaffirm their status as a top 4 side. And the side did exactly that with its 2-0 win over Tottenham, a result which saw them nail their second spot in the league.
Not only was the result a crucial one in terms of the league standings but saw Leicester City show what they are capable of when functioning as a complete unit. The team ran rings around a direct competitor for second place, a result which epitomised Leicester City’s standing in the league.
Buoyed by that performance, Leicester City will take to the land of today’s showdown striving to dole out a spitting image of that result. They are up against a Manchester United side just one point behind them, a clash where a win would be a massive shot in the arm for Leicester City’s top 4 credentials.
This will make for an intriguing showdown given the ramifications emanating from the affair. We envisage both the sides taking the one point apiece from the affair as this curtails in a draw.
Daniel and Ricardo are both going to be out of action for the day’s affair due to the Leicester City duo’s injury.
Probable Playing XI
Schmeichel, Fofana, Evans, Fuchs, Albrighton, Ndidi, Tielemans, Justin, Barnes, Vardy, Maddison.

Leicester City – Vardy: 11 Goals, 4 Assists.
Manchester United – Bruno: 9 Goals, 5 Assists.
LEI vs MUN Fantasy Prediction
With a cleansheet against Tottenham, Leicester City’s Kasper Schmeichel worked in the backdrop to help guide his side to a convincing win.
James Justin was exceptional in that contest as well, a performance which saw the wingback make life extremely cumbersome for Tottenham in both attack and defence.
The side’s cleansheet in that encounter sees us opt for Jonny Evans as well from the club. The opposition meanwhile will see us rope in the CB pairing of Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof owing to the side’s cleansheet against Everton in the Carabao Cup.
With two goals and an assist the last time around, Bruno Fernandes becomes the first pick for us in this slot. Midfielder Fred accompanies him owing to his ability to disrupt attacking plays by fraying them with his tackles and blocks.
He might not have snared a goal against Tottenham but James Maddison was crucial to the two goals his side hit on the day. He finds company in Wilfred Ndidi who closed the ball and won challenges to leave Tottenham high and dry in attack.
With a goal and assist against Tottenham, Jamie Vardy took his tally to 11 goals and 4 assists for the season. Marcus Rashford is our pick from the opposition after he helped himself to the two goals against Leeds United.
Captain and vice-captain
Bruno’s 9 goals and 4 assists will see him be our captain while Vardy is the vice-captain.
Kasper, Jonny, Justin, Harry, Victor, Bruno, Fred, James, Ndidi, Jamie, Marcus.
