PREDICTION
This will be a fascinating match as United have to go out and win every game now but Leicester will relish playing on the counter attack. It will not be easy for Mourinho's men given Leicester's form and the hosts are capable of testing them so expect goals in this one.

MEMORABLE MEETING
September 2014 offered up a sensational meeting between the two clubs at the King Power Stadium. Manchester United would find themselves cruising to victory in the second half as they were 3-1 up, but Leicester had other ideas as they scored four unanswered goals to turn the game on its head and earn all three points thanks to a 5-3 win.
