Premier League

Manchester United Might Lose Their Match Against Leicester With Lindelof and Bailly At The Back

The Premier League is back after the international break and Man U will be playing against Leicester City on Saturday by 3:00 pm. The Reds will be without Maguire and Varane in the center-back position as they are both out on injury.

According to records, Man U rarely pairs Lindelof and Bailey at the center back position since they both signed for the club. Eric Bailey and Victor Lindelof have played only 5 games together for Man U with Ole Gunner Solkjaer in charge.

Maguire and Lindelof were at the heart of Man U's defense before the arrival of Raphael Varane from Real Madrid this summer. The two are already starting to understand each other which is very important especially in the defense position before they were both sidelined due to injury sustained during the international break.

This chemistry between defenders especially in the center-back position is what Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof lack which might cost Man U their win against Leicester today.

Also, Eric Bailly is a very aggressive player making him prone to yellow cards or even red cards. If Eric and Lindelof couldn't understand each other in that defensive line, it might be a great problem for Ole pertaining to the kind of premier league fixtures Man U has in the nearest future.
