EPL: Leicester vs Manchester United Preview And Predictions



Manchester United:

Leicester city will host Manchester United on Saturday in what will be crucial encounter for the Red Devils. It’s indeed a daunting time for United at this time after a poor run of form.

Leicester clash is a make or break for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side as they are without thier two reliable central defenders Harry Maguire and Rafael Verane.

Marcus Rashford will be available for the clash after overcoming shoulder injury he has been nursing since last season. The Red Devils have missed the 23 year old more than they realise with his goals and mesmerizing runs on the left wing not seen so far.

Manchester United undoubtedly have the attacking firepower to take the game away from Leicester at any point but go into battle here with a weakened defence. Harry Magure and Raphael Varane’s absence will give Leicester plenty of hope. Manchester United are winless in the last five games Victor Lindelof and Eric Baily were paired.

Injuries :

Captain Harry Maguire and Rafael Verane are out of the encounter with calf issue and Groin injury respectively. Amad Diallo is also out with thigh injury.

Leicester city :

Leicester city also had a disappointing start to the season just like the Red Devils. Based on current form the Foxes have just one clean sheet in 13 games and the Brendan Rodgers side are on a run of four games without a win.

Three of the first choice back four all missed their last match through injury but Jonny Evans might be available on Saturday after missing their last match with illness.

Jimmy Verdy received heavy blow to his chest against Crystal palace and was able to continue the game after being treated on the pitch. The 34 year old will be available for the match if there is no further complications.

Injuries :

Wesley Fonana is out with a long term injury with a broken leg and ankle ligament damage while Wilfred Ndidi is also out of the encounter with Hamstring injury.
