Bailly, Mkhitaryan, Rashford and Ibrahimovic start against Leicester

Manchester United face Leicester City in the Premier League at the King Power Stadium this afternoon. United have been poor for the last few matches, drawing against Hull City in the Premier League at home during the week, in a match that a win should have been possible from. United will need to capitalise on the fact that Arsenal and Liverpool dropped points this weekend, which could see them head into the top four in much easier fashion than if they continue to frustrate as that will only result in United missing yet another chance to find something special this season. They have a 50/50 chance of lifting the EFL Cup at the end of the month, which will be a good start to the season’s end, but a place in the top four, earning a UEFA Champions League place at the end of the season is a must.

Manchester United:

De Gea;

Valencia, Bailly, Smalling, Rojo;

Herrera, Pogba;

Mkhitaryan, Mata, Rashford;

Ibrahimovic

Substitutes:

Romero; Blind; Lingard, Carrick, Young, Fellaini; Martial

Leicester City:

Schmeichel;

Simpson, Morgan, Huth, Fuchs;

Mahrez, Drinkwater, Ndidi, Musa;

Okazaki, Vardy

Substitutes:

Zieler; Chilwell, King, Albrighton, Kapustka, Gray, Benalouane

Manchester United and Leicester City have a long history of meetings which stretches back to 1894. In total, 123 matches have been played with United winning 62, drawing 28 and losing just 33 – the last defeat on the 21st September 2014. United will need to ensure they do the double over Leicester this season, ideally repeating their 4-1 humiliation of the reigning Premier League champions back in September.
