Predicted Manchester United XI to face Leicester in the Premier League

Manchester United resume Premier League duties as they visit Leicester for an early Saturday kickoff. The Red Devils are in red hot form and are on a three-game winning run. They ran rampant against Leeds in their last league game while left it a bit late against Everton in the League Cup.

The Foxes aren’t doing badly either, with 4 wins from their last 5 games. They made light work of Tottenham in their last game. With both teams in such good form, it would be hard to predict a winner but Manchester United could edge it out given their splendid away form.

Manchester United Team News

There will be a few injuries to wiggle through for this game. Scott McTominay still does not have a return date after his groin injury, so he looks ruled out. The defensive duo of Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo are also expected to be out. We saw the long awaited return of Eric Bailly. There seems to be no other injuries for Solskjaer to deal with.

Probable Manchester United XI

Formation: 4-2-3-1

David de Gea (GK)

Rested for the League Cup encounter, should resume his duties again.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka (RB)

The tough-tackler should return to his usual place after Tuanzebe deputised in the last game.

Victor Lindelof (CB)

Returns in place of Eric Bailly. Remains one of the first-choice defenders.

Harry Maguire (CB)

The captain will continue to lead his team. Much improved showing in the last game.

Luke Shaw (LB)

Came on towards the end of the last game but will very likely start this one.

Paul Pogba (DM)

Should retain his place after some splendid showings in the last few games. Looks good in a deeper role.

Fred (DM)

Likely to come back for this one and partner Pogba in midfield. Was given some much-needed rest against Everton.

Bruno Fernandes (AM)

Will be United’s biggest weapon against a solid Leicester side.

Mason Greenwood (RW)

The youngster looks to be having somewhat of a dull patch but it might not be long before he looks back to his best.

Marcus Rashford (LW)

Another player who got some deserved rest. Should be raring to have a crack at the Foxes.

Anthony Martial (ST)

Martial’s return to form could not have come at a better time, with a huge number of fixtures on the way.
