Reigning champions versus the most successful England team. Or also the sixth to the sixteenth. Different variations can be named fight of two units, which closes the twenty-fourth League program this weekend on the island.
The surprising champions from Leicester this season is down to advance to the eight-finals of the Champions League grossly failing a mere point divides Ranieri's charges from an ignominious relegation. United's under Mourinho fourteen matches in the English league did not lose, which is certainly appropriate valuation balance - even straight seven matches of this number for United ended in a draw.
This Foxes have completely different worries - those from their last two matches in the Premier League and have won only two when Vardy et al. against United they lose on Sunday, becoming the first champion in the history of the English top competition, which in the following season after winning the trophy lose four consecutive matches. Last time it happened Liverpool in 1983 - long before the thirty-five years.
Mourinho will miss against Leicester-back Phil Jones, who injured a foot against Hull. In its place will likely stand Eric Bailly, who is already back from his mission in Gabon national team at the African Cup of Nations, or Chris Smalling.
That reigning league champions Leicester Daniel Amarteyho still waiting, because waiting on Ghana unsuccessful battle for third place at the African Championships on Saturday night.
