Anthony Martial Man United news
Anthony Martial Man United

Manchester United make a superb start to the new season beating Chelsea 4-0. But since then their graph has repeatedly collapsed having picked up just 2 points from their next three matches.

And next up, the Red Devils welcome Leicester City at Old Trafford this Saturday.

Right now, Solskjaer has been dealing with a series of injury concerns meaning this clash against the Foxes comes at a really awkward time for the home side.

And many experts feel Man United might not be able to overcome the Leicester test since Brendan Rodgers’ men are yet to lose a game in the Premier League this season.

Man United team news vs Leicester City:

The most important Man United team news is the injury to Anthony Martial with the Frenchman facing a race against time to make himself available.

Before the international break, the club had said that Martial should be fit to take on Leicester but we will only get to know the latest update when Ole talks to the press on Friday.

If the Frenchman cannot make himself fully fit then many believe the manager could hand youngster Mason Greenwood a start vs the Foxes.

Luke Shaw also picked up a thigh injury and has been ruled out of next weekend’s clash meaning Ashley Young will play as the left-back.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka currently has a lower back injury but reports claim the summer signing should be fit to start vs the Foxes. But if he is not available for selection then it would be a real cause of concern for the manager since Diogo Dalot is also sidelined with an injury.

Paul Pogba did not take part during the international break for France due to an ankle injury but the midfielder should be fit to feature this Saturday.

Jesse Lingard pulled out the England squad with illness but he should return back to the starting XI vs Leicester after having lost his place to Juan Mata in the 1-1 draw vs Southampton.

Daniel James has been the standout attacker for Man United during the first four games of the season and the youngster will most certainly keep his place in the starting line-up during the Man United vs Leicester City clash.

Man United vs Leicester: Red Devils’ predicted XI

Starting XI: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Lindelof, Young; McTominay, Pogba; Rashford, Lingard, James; Martial.
