Gary Neville predicts Leicester City v Manchester United result

Leicester City host Manchester United in the Premier League this weekend.

Gary Neville has told Sky Sports. that Leicester City’s home encounter with Manchester United this weekend will end up in a satisfying draw for both teams.

The Foxes head into the Premier League game on the back of a 3-0 victory at Newcastle United, a result which saw them leapfrog Manchester City and Arsenal to the top of the league table.

United’s last-gasp 2-1 win at Watford last weekend gives them the chance to go top with a win at Leicester, but Neville believes a hard-fought draw will instead be the outcome.

“I think it'll be a draw. I don't think either team would be disgusted with a draw,” Neville told Sky Sports. “Obviously United want to go and win every game, it's the nature of the club, but Saturday is a very difficult game. It's a game that lots of other teams have struggled in."

All eyes will be on Leicester’s Jamie Vardy this weekend as he looks to break Ruud van Nistelrooy’s overall record of scoring at least once in 10 consecutive Premier League matches.

Vardy equalled the Dutchman's record with his first-half strike at Newcastle, a goal which saw the striker become the only English player ever to score at least once in 10 successive Premier League matches.

His task of becoming the outright record-holder will be put to the test as United currently boast the best defensive record in the league, conceding nine goals in their 13 matches to date.

United boss Louis van Gaal has come in for heavy criticism following his pragmatic and often dull style of play, but nobody can argue against their defensive record and results have been good.
