See Manchester United’s Possible line up vs Leicester City; Team news and Prediction #LEIMUN

Published

High-flying Manchester United look to close the gap on Liverpool as they travel to Leicester for their boxing day clash.

The last couple of weeks has been nothing but joy for Old Trafford faithfuls as they’ve seen a surge in form, one which has seen them move up quickly to 3rd on the premier league table. They’re 5 points adrift leaders, Liverpool and just a point off their opponents of the day, Leicester City.

Worthy of notable mention is United’s away form this season. They’ve won 6 of their 6 games on the road this season, 10 dating back to last season. Another win tomorrow would see them equal a premier league record of 11 straight away wins, which is currently held by Chelsea and Manchester City.

Leicester had a slight wobble from late November as they lost three of their four matches in all competitions, but the former English champions have won four of their last five. They’re placed second in the table for the second Christmas in a row although their home form hasn’t been convincing.

The last time both sides met was on the final day of last season, with both needing a win to qualify for the UEFA Champions League, but a Jesse Lingard’s last minute goal saw United qualify ahead of the Foxes after a 2-0 win.

Team News

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has a full squad to pick from with almost every member of his first team fit to play. The United boss made 9 changes for the team that beat Everton 2-0 in the Caraboa cup.

There will be changes from that side, with Victor Lindelof, Fred, Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Luke Shaw and David de Gea all expected to return.

Predicted Lineup

Manchester United

De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; McTominay, Fernandes, Fred; Greenwood, Martial, Rashford
