Our prediction: Leicester v Man Utd

United are built for knockout cup competitions. They're steely at the back, capable of keeping clean sheets against any frontline, and have enough rapid pace on the counter attack to get the job done at the other end.

They produced a pair of near-textbook displays to see off AC Milan and will aim for a similar result against Leicester.

Both teams enjoy counter-attacking, so this one may take a little while to get cooking as neither will fly out of the traps but, as the game opens up, expect United's strength to shine through.

Our prediction: Leicester 0-1 Man Utd (8/1 at bet365)
