Man Utd: 2020 in review
Leicester and Manchester United are gearing up for their 29th meeting in the Premier League era. United have claimed 19 victories, with seven games ending in a draw. The sides met in the final day of last season, with a 2-0 win for United securing a third-place finish in the league.
Leicester head into this one off the back of a fine 2-0 win at Tottenham.
Jamie Vardy gave the Foxes the lead from the penalty spot and set up the second as he forced Toby Alderweireld’s own goal before being substituted to protect an ongoing hip injury.
However, manager Brendan Rodgers has no fitness concerns about the striker ahead of the festive period.
“That’s the same injury but we’ve got a week now which is really nice. We haven’t had too many of them,” said Rodgers.
“It will give him a chance to recover and hopefully he will be okay for next weekend.”
Rodgers also hailed Vardy as the “one of the best strikers in the world”.
He added: “There are different types of strikers, Jamie’s strength is on the last line, threatening the back line.
“His biggest thing is he has no ego, he puts the work in, he’s not frightened to do the dirty work, he runs, he presses, tactically he’s very good.
“Then in the pressure moments, with the penalty he sticks that away. He must be horrible to play against as a centre-half knowing he is running across you, behind you, his movement is so clever and that is why he is at this level in the most competitive league in the world
“I can’t speak highly enough of him, he is a great guy.”
