Leicester City welcome Manchester United to King Power Stadium on the final day of the season, with a place in next season's Champions League at stake.


The Foxes have surrendered the position of superiority that they've held for much of the season, and now sit outside the top four despite holding a 14-point cushion over United as recently as January.


A poor run of form has seen Leicester drop out of the top 4

As for United, they've been in superb form since football got back underway in June - though they have slipped up in their last two outings, losing to Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-finals before labouring to a draw against West Ham in midweek.


That point against the Hammers took United into the top four for the first time since September, leaving the Red Devils needing just a point to seal their passage back into European football's premier club competition.


Here's 90min's preview of the game.

Soyuncu was sent off in the 4-1 defeat to Bournemouth

The home side will be without Turkish defender Caglar Soyuncu, who will serve the last of his three-game ban following his red card against Bournemouth. England internationals James Maddison and Ben Chilwell are also ruled out through injury, as are Ricardo Pereira and Christian Fuchs.


Manchester United are likely to be without Eric Bailly as he recovers from concussion. Luke Shaw is also doubtful, while fellow Englishmen Phil Jones and Axel Tuanzebe remain out of contention.

Recent Form


Brendan Rodgers' men have struggled to pick up victories since the restart, winning just twice in their previous nine games.


Sunday's defeat against Tottenham Hotspur took the Foxes outside of the Champions League places for the first time since their defeat against opponents Manchester United at Old Trafford in September.


Leicester have been below par since the restart

On the other hand, Man Utd go into this game having lost just once in their previous 21 games in all competitions.


However, Solskjaer's side have suffered a bit of a wobble in recent times, picking up just one win from the previous four - looking generally looking lethargic and fatigued in their fixtures against Chelsea and West Ham.


Here is how both sides have looked in their previous five games.


Leicester City

Tottenham Hotspur 3-0 Leicester (19/07)
Leicester 2-0 Sheffield United (16/07)
Bournemouth 4-1 Leicester (12/07)
Arsenal 1-1 Leicester (07/07)
Leicester 3-0 Crystal Palace (04/07)


Manchester United

Man Utd 1-1 West Ham (22/07)
Man Utd 1-3 Chelsea (19/07)
Crystal Palace 0-2 Man Utd (16/07)
Man Utd 2-2 Southampton (13/07)
Aston Villa 0-3 Man Utd (09/07)



Prediction


Both managers have their eyes on Champions League football

With both sides coming into this game off the back of disappointing performances, there is no telling what the outcome of this one will be.


Knowing that a draw won't be enough (unless Chelsea slip up against Wolves), we should expect to see Brendan Rodgers adopt an attacking strategy. This could play into the hands of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, whose side have shown how good they are on the counter over the past couple of months.


The first goal will be crucial in this one. Should it come for Leicester City, it could blow the game wide open. Should it come for Manchester United, it may be the end of the contest.


Prediction: Leicester City 1-3 Manchester United
