THE TEAM NEWS

MAN UTD

  • After their 4-0 win over Chelsea on opening day, United have not won any of their last three so they will be keen to get back on track.
  • Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has a variety of injury concerns coming into this match with Martial, Pogba, Lingard and Wan-Bissaka all doubts.
  • Pogba and Wan-Bissaka appear to be the most likely to be passed fit for this match although Lingard and Martial may be close.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Lindelof, Young; McTominay, Matic; Andreas Pereira, Mata, James; Rashford

Unavailable: Bailly (Injured), Fosu-Mensah (Injured), Shaw (Injured), Martial (Injured), Pogba (Injured), Dalot (Injured)

Doubtful: Lingard (Illness), Wan-Bissaka (Injured)

LEICESTER

  • Leicester are one of just three remaining unbeaten teams in the Premier League right now and confidence is high in the camp at present.
  • Brendan Rodgers has made a couple of changes in each match so far this season but he may name an unchanged team from last time out.
  • The 3-1 win over Bournemouth was arguably their best performance so far with Jamie Vardy currently in exceptional form leading the attack.

Predicted line-up (4-1-4-1): Schmeichel; Ricardo Pereira, Soyuncu, Evans, Chilwell; Ndidi; Albrighton, Tielemans, Maddison, Barnes; Vardy

Unavailable: Amartey (Injured), James (Injured)

Doubtful: Morgan (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

It is Leicester who come into this match in the better form as United continue to struggle. The flattering 4-0 win against Chelsea is United's only win in their last nine league matches going back to the end of last season and this in-form Leicester side can come away with at least a point here.
