Premier League Preview: Leicester City v Manchester United

The Foxes edged out a 2-0 win over Tottenham last time out and boss Brendan Rodgers is set to stick with the majority of his team against United.

Star man Jamie Vardy did go off in the final minutes against Spurs, but he should be OK to play with the returning Christian Fuchs in line to replace Timothy Castagne in defence.

For United, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is unlikely to make too many changes to his own winning team after they thrashed Leeds 6-2.

Scott McTominay was the goal scoring hero against Marcelo Bielsa’s side, but a groin injury will keep him out of this one, with Donny van de Beek set to fill in and Alex Telles replacing Luke Shaw at left back.

And it’s an early start on Boxing Day at the King Power Stadium with a 12.30pm kick off.

Leicester City cruise to 3-0 Premier League win over Brighton

A spectacular brace from James Maddison set the tone for the Foxes as Graham Potter’s visitors slide closer to relegation zone.

Despite struggling to live with Leicester as the match wore on it was Brighton that created the best early chances as Danny Welbeck brought a sprawling stop from Kasper Schmeichel.

But that was only to be a flicker of hope for the Seagulls as Maddison cushioned home James Justin’s cross on 28 minutes.

That strike opened the floodgates for the home side as Ayoze Perez forced diving save from Mat Ryan before Jamie Vardy made it two.

Perez’s line breaking pass released Justin behind again and the veteran striker got in front of his man to tap home.

And with Brighton unable to respond to wave after wave of Leicester attacks, Maddison buried his superb second just before the break.

Vardy’s hold up play created an angle for the England midfielder and he arced a wicked effort past Ryan.

The second half was never in any danger of matching the first 45 as Maddison almost clinched a hat trick and a luckless Brighton battled to keep the score down.

Leicester City edge out 1-0 Premier League win over Wolves

Jamie Vardy’s first half penalty proved the difference on afternoon of limited chances at both ends with the Foxes boosting their Top Four chances on home soil.

Neither side created much in a tight opening at the King Power, with Leicester given a real helping hand with their opener.

Dennis Praet’s driven cross hit Matt Kilman on the hand inside the box and after a long VAR check, referee Anthony Taylor pointed to the spot.

Vardy has one of best penalty records in the Premier League and the former England man was never in danger as he confidently tucked past Rui Patricio.

But if Leicester’s first spot kick was a controversial one, Taylor awarded them a more straightforward one before the break as Rayan Alt-Nouri tripped James Justin.

However, Vardy’s consistent record was to be dented as his second attempt was a poor one and Patricio made a scrambling stop.

Leicester picked the momentum up after the break as Vardy tested Patricio with a fierce drive and James Maddison fired wide.

But despite struggling to make any inroads on Leicester, Wolves did almost nick a point late on.

Ruben Neves’ spectacular drive looked destine for the top corner but Kasper Schmeichel reacted brilliantly with cat like reflexes to make a game winning stop.

Fulham linked with Leicester City midfielder Daniel Amartey

Scott Parker’s side are short on Premier League experience and following back to back defeats in the opening two games, he is still looking to strengthen.

Amartey has barely featured for the Foxes under Brendan Rodgers, with no top-flight football in over 14 months at the King Power Stadium.

Understandably the Ghanaian international is rumoured to be keen on leaving Leicester in the coming weeks, with reports from Football Insider claiming Fulham can complete a deal in the region of £5m.
