Starting XI: Manchester United v Leicester City – Premier League 2016/17

Manchester United will be pitted against the Premier League champions Leicester City at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon, the sixth match of the new league season. United won their first three matches in the league, beating Bournemouth 3-1, Southampton 2-0, and Hull City 1-0, before falling to defeats against Manchester City; 2-1 and Watford; 3-1. United also lost their first UEFA Europa League group stage match away to Feyenoord, conceding an offside goal late in the first half of the match. Fresh from three defeats in a row, United beat Northampton Town 3-1 in the EFL Cup on Wednesday evening, ending their chances of four defeats in a row in a performance which was less than perfect against the League One side, but enough to earn a place in the fourth round of the competition, facing Manchester City at Old Trafford on the 26th October. United now need to step up their game against the Premier League champions, who themselves had not started their season well and currently sitting in the eleventh position in the league, not getting much negative press from the media, which is something United cannot say, still, United are the media’s meal ticket as everyone wants to read about them; hated, adored, never ignored!
