Manchester United looked so good in its first match of the season, where, as you might remember, the Red Devils blanked Chelsea 4-0. Since then, it’s been tricky, with United drawing against Wolves, losing to Palace, and drawing against Southampton. All told, that’s good enough for eighth in the table, but it being United, nothing less than a Champions League place will do. Leicester City, United’s opponent on Saturday, just so happens to be in a Champions League place as the table stands right now.

Manchester United vs. Leicester City: What to watch for
This match is exclusively on NBC Sports Gold for American viewers; you’ll need to subscribe to the packed-with-features service to get the full 90 live as it happens. It’ll certainly be a good test for Man U; it’s coming off an international break, and before that, a draw with 10-man Southampton that saw exciting young talent Daniel James score the opening goal before giving up an equalizer and not being able to capitalize on their man advantage in the final stages of the match.
Leicester City, meanwhile, beat Bournemouth 3-1 last time out, with Jamie Vardy bagging a brace and Youri Tielemans joining him on the scoresheet. Vardy’s working on his fifth straight season of double-digit goals, though last match’s haul only brought him to three for the season. He still remains, even at 32, one of the top scoring threats in the league.
