    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, before joining 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.

    Leicester City have enjoyed moderate success through the years - winning 3 League Cups, and reaching the final of the FA Cup 4 times; prior to their odds-defying Premier League title win in 2015/16. Leicester City's most prominent rivals are 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.

    Away to the champions. We'll be lucky to get a draw.

    Mahrez, Vardy and Gray to have worldies and United will do good to come away with a point to the Champions of England. As much as I want to predict 1-2 to United, I'm just going to go with a draw at 1-1.

    Kasper Schmeichel to have the game of his life, Jamie Vardy to rediscover his Ballon D'or form for this game only. You get my drift.

    3-1 to United. They're really shit and we're not that bad, expecting couple of goals from Zlatan.

    Mkhitaryan was shit today so Mata deserves a start. Really hope Bailly is fit to start, we need him to be a fixture in our side. Shaw or Blind are both fine for left back, please no darmian though. PLAY MARTIAL. That's it really.

    Away from home against a team fighting for their place in the Premier League?

    Nailed on 1-1 draw.

    I also feel the pain of the 13% who have voted for a 5-0 Leicester win. :lol:

    They will turn up like they did versus City and end our UCL hopes (via the league) for good

    Difficult to feel any way confident after 3 league draws on the bounce, but Leicester look terrible. We might nick this by a goal.

    Have a gut feeling we'll finally start scoring goals here, 3-2 to Leicester.

    We'll win it easily, and make some more ground up on Arsenal and Liverpool, who will more than likely drop points, maybe overly optimistic after such a poor game, but it's often the way things happen.

    They've been a better team at home than away. 5 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses at home.

    Another potential banana slip.

    HELLO
    In a fantasy world I'd love to see

    Martial - Rashford - Mkhi
    Pogba - Carrick - Herrera
    Shaw - Rojo - Jones - Valencia
    DDG

    Basically stretching the pitch as much as possible. Ibra on ASAP if it's bringing us no joy.

    They have one of the worst defenses in the league. Another bottle job in front of goal to make them look better than they are.

    A draw would be a good bet. Might sneak a win but it wont be pretty.

    We won't win this one. Rashford will be rewarded for his horrific performance with another start, we'll see Pogba and Ibra fail to carry the team and have to endure Mata/Rooney in behind Zlatan once again. Hopefully we can nick a point.

    They are in dreadful form, to the point where something looks rotten in the camp, so we should be punishing them.

    Then again we should have punished bottom of the league at home tonight so it could be more frustration.
