Leicester vs Manchester United prediction: How will Premier League fixture play out today?

Cristiano Ronaldo on the pitch for Manchester United

Leicester City welcome Manchester United to the King Power Stadium this afternoon as the visitors look to regain momentum in the Premier League title race.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s United drew 1-1 with Everton last time out, having lost to Aston Villa in their previous top-flight fixture.

As such, the Red Devils enter the weekend on 14 points, joint-third in the standings with rivals Man City, as well as Everton and Brighton.

Leicester, meanwhile, are down in 13th, having failed to win any of their last four Premier League games – with draws in their last two outings.

Here’s everything you need to know about today’s game.

When is it?

The match will kick off at 3pm BST.

How can I watch it?

The game will not be broadcast in the UK.

What is the team news?

Man United will be without defender Raphael Varane, who will miss “a few weeks” of action due to an injury sustained in France’s Nations League triumph against Spain.

Centre-back partner Harry Maguire has missed United’s last two games through injury but could return here, as could the recovering Amad Diallo and Marcus Rashford.

Leicester defenders James Justin and Wesley Fofana remain long-term absentees, while midfielder Wilfred Ndidi is expected to be out for the next few weeks.

Former United defender Jonny Evans withdrew from Northern Ireland’s squad this month due to injury and illness, but he may be fit and healthy to return here, alongside striker Kelechi Iheanacho, who proved his fitness while playing for Nigeria last weekend.

Predicted line-ups

Leicester: Schmeichel; Castagne, Soyuncu, Vestergaard, Bertrand; Lookman, Choudhury, Tielemans, Barnes; Vardy, Iheanacho.

Man United: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Bailly, Shaw; McTominay, Pogba, Fernandes; Greenwood, Ronaldo, Martial.
