Leicester vs Manchester United confirmed line-ups: Team news ahead of Premier League fixture


Leicester host Manchester United in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon in the first action from the division this weekend.

The game could have a real impact on the title race, with Leicester heading into the fixture in second spot with 27 points – four behind title-holders and leaders Liverpool – and United trailing the Foxes in third place by just one point.

Both teams collected three points last weekend, with Leicester beating Jose Mourinho’s Spurs 2-0 in north London before United defeated Leeds 6-2 in a thrilling encounter at Old Trafford.

The stage is therefore set for an entertaining fixture between Brendan Rodgers’ hosts and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s players.
