A charged-up Leicester City will be looking to avoid three straight losses at home when they take on Manchester United at the King Power Stadium on Saturday night (1.15 am Sunday IST).
Leicester City vs Manchester United Preview:
The two clubs have had different fortunes throughout the season. The Foxes were languishing at the bottom after only 6 points from 8 games before the appointment of former Southampton manager Claude Puel. The 2016 champions have since made huge progress and are now at 8th with 26 points from 18 games.
Manchester United have always managed to get the results, in spite of much-criticised performances against the top 6 sides. Although Jose Mourinho’s side are second in the table with 41 from 18 games, an 11 point gap with leaders Manchester City is going to be very hard to negate.
Having both been knocked out of the English League Cup this mid-week, both will be looking to return to winning ways.
Leicester City vs Manchester United Team News:
Both the teams can be assured of the fact that none are missing any players ahead of their clash due to suspension.

United, on the contrary, will be missing 4 key players in Antonio Valencia, Marouane Fellaini, Michael Carrick and Eric Bailly.
