With both sides strugging for cutting edge of late, Al Hain-Cole is backing against goals being scored at both ends at the King Power Stadium

Both Leicester City and Manchester United will be desperate to return to winning ways when they come face-to-face at the King Power Stadium in Sunday’s Premier League clash.

Having slipped to within two points of the relegation zone after three consecutive defeats, the champions are available at 4/1 (5.00) with Paddy Power to give themselves a major boost with a high profile victory here.

Meanwhile, Jose Mourinho’s men have now gone three league games without a win after being held to a third consecutive draw by Hull City in midweek, but are 8/11 (1.73) to claim maximum points in this one.

Anyone wanting to back the visitors at a much bigger price should consider Paddy Power's new customer offer of 8/1 (9.0). To take advantage of this huge price, simply registrer using the link above, back United at the usual price shown on site and if they win, the returns will be topped up to the enhanced value. Winnings paid in free bets, T&C's apply.

Two of the last three league meetings between the teams have resulted in draws, and you can get odds of 27/10 (3.70) on them cancelling each other out once again on this occasion.

While he may have blamed the referee and opposition time-wasting in a heated post-match interview, Mourinho must privately have been concerned by his team’s failure to break down Hull on Wednesday night.

With just two goals to their name in the last three league fixtures, the lack of cutting edge that has been a feature of the Red Devils season show little sign of going away.

Nevertheless, having conceded just nine times in their last 14 league games, the guests should at least have little trouble in keeping at bay the only Premier League team yet to score a goal in 2017.

Having only found the net in two of their last eight league matches, Claudio Ranieri’s struggling side will be keen to avoid an open and end-to-end encounter as they battle at the bottom of the table.

With this in mind, odds of 4/5 (1.80) seem generous on no more than one side finding the net for Leicester’s seventh league game in succession, as well as United’s third in four on the road.

'No' on both teams to score at 4/5 (1.80) for a 2pt stake with Paddy Power
