Fred: Manchester United can deal with Vardy threat

Manchester United midfielder Fred believes his side can nullify the threat posed by Jamie Vardy as they look to clinch Champions League qualification.

United head into Sunday’s final round of Premier League fixtures needing to avoid defeat at Leicester to guarantee a top-four finish, with the clubs currently lying third and fifth in the table respectively. In Vardy, the Foxes have the division’s top scorer for 2019-20, the 33-year-old having netted 23 times this term.

"He’s not the top scorer just by chance," he said. 

"So we need to nullify his threat. He’s a top player and he’s having a great season. We need to take a lot of care with him. He’s a very good player, we need to think about his goal threat, but we have very good players in defence who are capable of nullifying him."
