Arsene Wenger states his prediction for Leicester v Man United
Arsene Wenger is predicting an entertaining game between Manchester United and Leicester City on Saturday
Arsene Wenger has warned Manchester United that they are in for a stern test of their title credentials when they take on Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Saturday.
The Red Devils take on the surprise Premier League leaders on Saturday evening knowing that a victory would move them to the top of the table after 14 games of the new campaign.
Leicester have been one of the Premier League’s surprise packages this season and are currently two points clear at the top of the table.
And Arsenal boss Wenger, whose side are currently two points behind the leaders, has been impressed by City’s attacking displays in recent months.
Asked if he will watch United’s clash with Leicester on Saturday, Wenger told a news conference on Thursday morning: “It will be quite interesting because Leicester are a team who have no pressure and they play with no pressure and quality.
“It’s a very explosive team, especially on the flanks. When they win the ball, they come out on fire in a very explosive way.
“At the start of the game, Man United will have the possession and Leicester will be the team that can create havoc on the counter-attack. It’s very hard to predict.”
Arsenal, who slumped to a 2-1 loss to West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League on Saturday, take on Norwich City at Carrow Road on Sunday afternoon.
