Charlie Nicholas is tipping Manchester United to claim a 1-1 draw with Leicester City in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

The Red Devils dropped their first points under interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last week when they were held to a 2-2 draw by Burnley at Old Trafford last week.

Manchester United are aiming to try and break back into the top four before the season is out as they look to try and secure qualification for next season’s Champions League.

They currently find themselves sixth in the Premier League table as they look to try and climb the table under Solskjaer.

However, Arsenal legend Nicholas is tipping Leicester to hold Manchester United to a 1-1 draw at the King Power Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Writing in his column for Sky Sports, Nicholas said: “A first slip-up for Solskjaer, but being 2-0 down and getting something from it keeps momentum going.

“Martial has re-signed his contract, so there is a feel-good factor there – they are not losing any games and keeping the group together and they have their points to prove.

“After going behind early at Anfield, Leicester did really well and I feel like I’m waiting for Puel to get the sack every game. They responded brilliantly at Anfield, they defended and attacked well, they did not get enough service to Vardy, but Maddison missed a couple of sitters and they could have easily won that match.

“So this will be a tough test for United, but I think it will be a draw with Vardy being a real handful and I’m totally not convinced by United’s defence.”

Manchester United brought in Solskjaer as their interim boss after having sacked Jose Mourinho last month.

The Red Devils have not won the Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson’s final season in charge back in 2013.
