Leicester City make their first visit to Manchester United as Premier League champions, a mantle that the home side have enjoyed plenty of times down the years.

MANCHESTER UNITED VS LEICESTER CITY – AT MANCHESTER UNITED

Somewhat unsurprisingly, the Red Devils have gone on to win six and draw two of these matches.
