With a long injury list and struggling for form, Al Hain-Cole expects the Foxes' promising campaign to end in disappointment versus Solskjaer's men

Champions League football is up for grabs when Leicester City welcome Manchester United to the King Power Stadium for their final Premier League fixture on Sunday.

The Foxes are one point adrift of both their third-placed opponents and fourth-placed Chelsea, meaning only a victory would be enough to guarantee a spot at Europe’s top table.

However, having won just two of their nine league matches since the restart, they are 21/10 (3.10) outsiders with bet365 to rescue their season with a dramatic win.

Indeed, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team has won eight and lost none of their last 13 matches in the league, and can be backed at 6/5 (2.20) to round off a positive campaign with a big victory here.

A draw could be enough for the hosts should Chelsea lose to Wolves, and you can get odds of 5/2 (3.50) on them earning a single point.

Leicester vs Manchester United Preview

It seemed unlikely months ago that Brendan Rodgers' side would be the one coming into this match in desperate need of a result in order to claim a top four spot.

However, while they accumulated 39 points in the first 19 matches of the season, they have been brought crashing back down to earth by a return of just 23 from the subsequent 18.

The Foxes dropped out of the top four for the first time since September with a 3-0 loss at Tottenham last week, meaning they have now won just twice since the restart.

It is hard to see them snapping out of that form given their lengthy injury list, with those 6/5 (2.20) odds looking too good to pass up on United tying up Champions League qualification with a victory over struggling Leicester
