Leicester City’s inconsistent start to the season continues with a 2-2 draw at Selhurst Park against Crystal Palace prior to the international break.
Iheanacho and Vardy’s first half efforts were cancelled out by Olise and Schlupp in the second half as both sides picked up a point each.
This kept Leicester tottering in 13th place with 8 points from 7 matches, having won only 1 of their last 5 matches across competitions.
On the other hand, Manchester United were held to a 1-1 draw at home against Everton and dropped their intensity a bit in recent weeks.
Martial’s goal was cancelled out by Townsend as the Red Devils yet again dropped points at home.
The Red Devils has a number of difficult fixtures coming up; hence a string of positive results is the requirement.
Man United is 4th in the table with 14 points from 7 matches.
Both sides last met in May for an EPL clash at Old Trafford where Man United lost 1-2 to the Foxes.
