Leicester City Vs Manchester United: Team News, Predicted Lineups, Key Men and Odds

Leicester City are set to face another stern test in the Premier League after their impressive display against Liverpool in their last outing as they are ready to take on Manchester United. The Foxes have not had the best of times this season and will be hoping to inflict another upset and get their season going.

On the other hand, Manchester United extended their unbeaten run to nine matches after they were able to salvage a draw in their last outing against Burnley. Paul Pogba and Victor Lindelof scored late in the match against the Clarets to secure a point after Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood gave Burnley a two-goal lead. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side would look to keep their unbeaten streak intact as they get ready to lock horns against the Foxes tomorrow.
