Your stat pack for Sunday's big game

Friday 24 July 2020 14:00

All eyes will be on the King Power Stadium on Sunday, when Manchester United take on Leicester City in a key battle for top-four places.

The Reds will secure qualification for next season's Champions League by avoiding defeat, and the omens for our final league game of the season are good.

Scroll down to find out why, as we break down the key stats before our trip to the East Midlands...


United have played at the King Power Stadium six times, losing just once – a 5-3 defeat in September 2014. That’s the Foxes' only Premier League home victory over the Reds in 13 attempts, if you include their old Filbert Street home.


The Reds are unbeaten in our last 10 Premier League matches against Leicester, winning seven and drawing three of those games. Only against Aston Villa (15) do we have a longer ongoing unbeaten run among current Premier League sides.

The restart isn't far off, so we're showing action from our 12 league wins so far. Next, it's United 1 Leicester 0...


United have opened the scoring within the opening 10 minutes in each of our last three Premier League matches against Leicester, with Marcus Rashford the man to strike early in each of the last two meetings.


While the Reds are second only to Manchester City when it comes to points taken since the restart, Leicester are averaging just 1.1 points-per-game in the Premier League since football resumed (9 points from 8 games) – only the 14th-best tally among the 20 sides.


Should he start on Sunday, former Foxes man Harry Maguire would become the first outfield Red since Gary Pallister in 1994-95 to start every game in a Premier League campaign. He is also one of seven Premier League outfielders to have played every minute this season.


Juan Mata has been involved in six goals in his last six Premier League games against Leicester (4 goals, 2 assists), scoring three in his last two against the Foxes at the King Power Stadium, including a brace in a 2-2 draw in December 2017.

United Away


See highlights of our 19 Premier League away matches, charting the highs and lows of an unprecedented '19/20 campaign...


Although United were beaten by Cardiff at Old Trafford in our final game of last season, we haven’t lost game 38 in a Premier League campaign when it’s been held away from home since 2001 (a 3-1 defeat by Tottenham). That’s a run of nine final day games on the road unbeaten!


United legends Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes netted 216 Premier League goals between them, but not a single one of them came against the Foxes – despite the homegrown pair playing against Leicester 25 times! A list of Reds who have struck against the East Midlands outfit in the top-flight since 1992 includes Bastian Schweinsteiger and Jaap Stam, who scored their only league goals in this fixture.
