ULLOA FANCIES DOING DOUBLE OVER ‘FADING FORCE’ UNITED
DISHING OUT HURT: Leo Ulloa LEO ULLOA insists Leicester can hurt Manchester United again this weekend after claiming their opponents are not the force they used to be.
The rock-bottom Foxes stunned Louis van Gaal’s side when the teams met in September, romping to a 5-3 win at the King Power Stadium.
And Argentinian forward Ulloa, who scored his ninth goal of the campaign in Saturday’s FA Cup triumph at Tottenham, insists there is no chance of United being caught off guard in Saturday’s reverse fixture at Old Trafford.
“It’s different because when we played them before they didn’t know us. But they do now,” said Ulloa.
“We are in a different situation now, but it’s important for us to have confidence.
“Even though we know it’s difficult, we will go there with the mentality to win.
“We need to play with the same intensity. We must play strong, defend well and use the counter-attack.
IMPRESSED: Kramaric they played well. It gives us confidence.”
The Foxes are likely to hand a full Premier League debut to £9million Croatia forward Andrej Kramaric.
Boss Nigel Pearson was impressed with his showing against Spurs.
“I think Andrej grew into the game,” said Pearson.
“He can see that life in English football is that bit quicker, but I thought he showed some great intelligence and some of his runs were brilliant.
“It was a great opportunity for him to become a little bit more acclimatised in a game in which, when you look at the priorities of the season, the Premier League is the priority.”
