Team News

Man Utd
Leicester
  • Both Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Jesse Lingard returned from England duty due to injury and illness respectively but should be fit to face Leicester.
  • Paul Pogba was unable to feature for France over the international break due to an ankle injury and, along with compatriot Anthony Martial, is ruled out.
  • Mason Greenwood could be in line to start in attack, with Andreas Pereira moving into a deeper role from the stalemate with Southampton.
  • Unlike their hosts the Foxes have their strongest lineup available for the trip to Old Trafford and they'll be keen to prove capable of competing with United for a place in the top six.
  • Some would argue that Leicester's XI is stronger than that of their hosts right now, but Brendan Rodgers is likely to make at least one defensively minded change from the win over Bournemouth.
  • Hamza Choudhury may well come into the midfield, moving James Maddison to a wider role on the left, while Ayoze Perez will hope to replace Marc Albrighton.

Prediction

  • With injuries mounting against the Red Devils before the international break, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be sweating on the fitness of a handful of players this weekend.
  • All eyes will be on Harry Maguire's first game against his former club and with Jamie Vardy in fine form it's sure to be a difficult afternoon for the England centre-back.
  • Leicester haven't beaten Manchester United since their first meeting back in the top-flight ended in an eight-goal thriller. They won't have a better chance to end a run of ten matches without a win in this fixture.

  • I want 2 believe that we’ve all been proven wrong by the effort our UTD and with some merit of luck and precision despite our poor play. 1UTD ������

  • Gosh what's a boring match. At almost 80 minutes of time elapsed,MU have 8 goal's attempts supposedly, I didn't realize when they came..

  • @dib Correctin myself, a post shor by Rashford few secongs ago, so they have 9 attempts now. I missed the previous 8 though :)

  • 1-0 Rashford

  • 2-1. Money for Maguire will get points here too.

  • @koziol.mutant I would be shocked if Leicester do not win 1-0

  • If United don't win today either, I hope their fans realize that the club is knee deep.

  • Leicester city +0.75

  • Man united 1-2 Leicester city

  • Leicester remain unbeaten with eight points from four games, while Man Utd are winless since their opening-day win against Chelsea.

  • 1-3

  • Man Utd have key players injured.

  • Leicester win to nil. I’m a united fan too. Don’t @ me. Most probably 0-1.

  • @RMartin very confident about Leicester keeping a clean sheet in general so maybe 0-0 is the best we can hope for.

  • United 2:0

  • UNITED 3-1
