Michael Owen believes Manchester United will extend their winless run to four games when the Red Devils take on Leicester City at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.

The Red Devils signed off for the international break with a 1-1 draw with Southampton at St Mary’s despite Daniel James breaking the deadlock in the first half.

Manchester United haven’t won a Premier League fixture since the opening day, when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side were emphatic 4-0 winners against Chelsea FC at Old Trafford.

Crystal Palace were the first Premier League team to beat Manchester United this season after Patrick van Aanholt scored an added-time winner at the Theatre of Dreams.

Leicester City are one of only two teams in the Premier League left with an unbeaten record following two victories and two draws in their opening four games.

Former Manchester United striker Owen is backing the Foxes to secure a point against Solskjaer’s side at Old Trafford in Saturday’s fixture at Old Trafford.

“Jamie Vardy has been involved in 14 goals in 14 league games since Brendan Rodgers took over at the King Power Stadium and I expect to see the Foxes get a point at Old Trafford from what promises to be an open, exciting affair,” Owen told BetVictor.

“United have not won since the opening day of the season and their 2-1 loss to Crystal Palace in their last home game was particularly disappointing. Leicester remain unbeaten so far this term and currently head the table without the big two.

“The Foxes can take a point from a game which sees Harry Maguire face his former club and teammates for the first time since his record-breaking summer move.”

Leicester played out a 1-1 draw with Chelsea FC at Stamford Bridge last month to prove that Brendan Rodgers’ side can earn points on the road against the traditional top six.

Manchester United signed Harry Maguire in an £80m deal from Leicester City in the summer transfer window to bolster their back four with the world’s most expensive defender.
