Leicester City V Manchester United Preview, Predicted XI And Betting Odds

 

United dropped the first points of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s reign in charge against Burnley, but the Norwegian will be heartened by how they came from 2-0 down to salvage a point.

Leicester will be dangerous opponents for the Red Devils after picking up a draw at Anfield midweek. Claude Puel’s side have also beaten Manchester City and Chelsea this season.

On the injury front, United will be concerned about Paul Pogba’s fitness. He picked up a knock against Sean Dyche’s men and looks to be a doubt for the game on Sunday.

Anthony Martial should be back in contention after missing the draw against Burnley with what Solskjaer described as a “slight injury.”

Marouane Fellaini remains sidelined with a calf issue but the Belgian is close to sealing a permanent move to China. The Chinese transfer window closes at the end of February.

Marcos Rojo has been back in light training but there is no indication as to when he’ll return to the first-team squad after his latest knock.

Leicester have just one injury concern currently, with Daniel Amartey sidelined until at least March with a broken ankle.

At the bookies, United are the slight favourites for the match at the King Power. The Red Devils are 11/10 at Unibet with a draw 13/5 at 188BET. A victory for the Foxes is 3/1 at Betfair.

Manchester United’s Predicted XI To Face Leicester:

De Gea, Young, Lindelof, Smalling, Shaw, Herrera, Matic, Mata, Lingard, Rashford, Sanchez
