    Leicester City Football Club - nicknamed The Foxes, The Blues, City, and Blue Army; are a professional football club based in Leicester; and were founded in 1884 by a group of old boys of Wyggeston School as Leicester Fosse, and joined the Football Association in 1890. In 1919, when League football resumed after World War I, Leicester Fosse ceased trading due to financial difficulties of which little is known. The club was reformed as Leicester City Football Club, particularly appropriate as the borough of Leicester had recently been given city status. Although they have never won the title in the top division of English football, Leicester City have enjoyed moderate success through the years - winning 3 League Cups, and reaching the final of the FA Cup 4 times. Watford's most prominent rivalries are with fellow Nottingham Forest, Coventry City and Derby County; and they have been playing their home games at The King Power Stadium (originally named Filbert Way) since 2002.

    Need legs in midfield, stick to 4-3-3 but drop Fellaini and Carrick, bring in Morgan and Herrera.

    de Gea
    Valencia Smalling Blind Darmian
    Morgan
    Rooney Herrera

    Lingard Rashford Martial

    Very good line up. The only change I'd like to see is CBJ for Darmian.

    I want Leicester to win the league, and I still think they will even after we stick 3 past them without reply. Martial will dick them. They'll have a couple of decent chances of their own, but De Gea will laugh them off and save them with his arse.

    I don't think they will be as effective without Vardy. I'm feeling optimistic about this one for some reason. 2-0 United, Rooney and Martial to score.

    This is United who everytime we think have turned a corner end up coming up short. This has a draw written all over it. The back four will be putting their lives on the line to shut us out. It's going to be tighter than people think. Think it will be 1-1.

    Would love Leicester to win the title but our top 4 hopes hangs in the balance, so I hope we twat them.

    They can just beat Swansea, Everton and Chelsea. No worries :)

    Probably beat them, in the process deny them the title, and be hated even more.

    Sounds a good plan to me.

    Martial vs Simpson, Rashford vs Huth/Morgan, all of them vs De Gea.

    Yeah, we are winning this.

    I'm conflicted - I obviously want us to win but since I don't think we have any chance of top 4, I'd hate Leicester to miss out (even if Vardy is an odious little cnut).

    It's better for us long term if Spurs don't win the league. Hopefully Chelsea will roll over against Leicester to feck Spurs over and we can somehow rob 4th from Citeh.

    They have to beat Swansea, their next games get tougher while Spurs have an easier run in. Spurs should beat West Brom at home. Its going to go all the way to the wire. If Leicester lose to Swansea then I am sure Spurs will overtake them.

    After the West Brom game, Spurs go to Chelsea, who have been playing quite well.

    So even if Leicester and Spurs win their next games against Swansea and West Brom respectively, Spurs could draw at Chelsea which would mean Leicester having to beat United at OT to bag the title.

    Chelsea in their last 6 games have won 2 , lost 2 and drawn 2. On form that doesnt look that impressive. DDWLLW

    Should have beaten them at the KP - confident we'll beat them at Old Trafford. I'd love for CBJ to start this game - his performances prior to his injury should have meant he came straight back in but, he hasn't for whatever reason.

    DDG
    Valencia, Smalling, Blind, CBJ
    Schneiderlin, Rooney, Herrera
    Lingard, Rashford, Martial

    That is the starting XI I'd like to see.

    I hope we smash them proper. But yeah I'll take a scrappy 1-0 win with an OG off Ulloa's arse. Underdogs fairytale be darned.

    Home game against a top team is something we can handle. Won't be easy but with a full week's rest, should be no problem playing a fast front line again. Just need to not go too conservative, which will undoubtedly happen
