Manchester United vs Leicester City: Premier League Match Preview, Team News, Dream11 Predictions

Manchester United vs Leicester City is the upcoming match in the Premier League on Saturday as Manchester United welcome Leicester City to Old Trafford with top 4 chances becoming slim with each match day.

Manchester United vs Leicester City: Match Preview:

A late run in the League is all that can take United back into the top tier of European football next season after Atletico Madrid knocked them out of the Champions League before the international break.

Currently, it seems unlikely Ralf Rangnick's side will be able to overcome Arsenal's challenge on that front, although their win over Tottenham did at least keep them within touching distance.

Leicester City, meanwhile, appear to have come through their own difficult period and have won three of their last five outings.

Team News:

Manchester United:

Man United will again be without the services of Mason Greenwood due to a club suspension, while Edinson Cavani is also out, having picked up a calf problem while representing Uruguay on Tuesday.

Fred and Alex Telles will need to be assessed after their international commitments for Brazil, but France duo Raphael Varane and Paul Pogba are both expected to be fit despite suffering small foot injuries during the recent international break.

Neither Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho were involved for England during the international break but could start here, while Ronaldo is set to lead the line with support from Bruno Fernandes, with both players on a high, having helped Portugal qualify for the World Cup.

Luke Shaw, who represented England over the break, could also be back in the side at left-back, but Diogo Dalot should keep out Aaron Wan-Bissaka on the right.

Leicester City:

As for Leicester, Jonny Evans and Wesley Fofana are both available for selection at Old Trafford and could start, which would be a huge boost for the Foxes.

Marc Albrighton and Harvey Barnes should also both be fit despite recent issues, but Jamie Vardy is out with a knee injury, while Wilfred Ndidi will miss the remainder of the campaign with his own knee issue.Luke Thomas remains a doubt due to a knock, while Danny Ward and Ryan Bertrand are definitely out.

Patson Daka could get the nod over Kelechi Iheanacho at the tip of the attack, but Maddison and Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall should both retain their spots in the starting side.

Manchester United vs Leicester City: Head to Head:

Manchester United will be extra motivated to get a result here knowing they have lost all of the previous three head to head meetings with the Foxes.

Leicester City celebrated a 4-2 victory in mid-October when they faced the Red Devils in the reverse fixture at King Power Stadium.
