Brendan Rodgers Man United vs Leicester City
Brendan Rodgers Leicester City

Leicester City are currently sitting pretty on the third spot of the Premier League table just behind Man City and Liverpool.

The Foxes are yet to lose a game in the league this season and Brendan Rodgers will be hoping that this record remains intact when he takes his team to Old Trafford this Saturday.

Leicester have won their previous two matches in the league and also the EFL second-round game vs NUFC while Man United’s only win this season came during the opening day of the campaign vs Chelsea.

Leicester team news vs Man United:

Rodgers will be travelling to Old Trafford will almost a fully fit squad but the manager is expected to make a few defensive-minded changes before the Foxes take on Man United.

Leicester City fielded a backline of Pereira, Soyuncu, Evans and Ben Chilwell vs Bournemouth and the manager should stick with the same personnel this Saturday.

Hamza Choudhury will hopefully come into the first XI meaning James Maddison should play in a wider role. This would mean that they will be no place for Harvey Barnes in the first XI and the 21-year-old will drop back to the bench.

Mark Albrighton started on the right side of midfield vs the Cherries but some reports claim that he could be dropped for the Man United vs Leicester City clash.

And if Albrighton moves to the bench then Ayoze Perez will most certainly come into the picture.

Wilfred Ndidi has excelled in defensive midfield this season for the Foxes and the Nigerian international will have the job to keep the likes of Pogba and Lingard from joining the other Man United attackers during Saturday’s game.

Jamie Vardy will play as the lone striker upfront and his former teammate Harry Maguire will have the task of keeping the 32-year-old at bay.

Leicester are undefeated in their last 5 matches in the Premier League and some experts believe they have the chance to beat Man United too since Solskajer will be itching to pick up his second win this season. And this is why Man United will put their foot on the peddle from the very first minute leaving gaps in the defence for the Foxes to exploit.

Leicester City predicted line-up vs Man United:

Starting XI: Schmeichel; Ricardo Pereira, Soyuncu, Evans, Chilwell; Ndidi; Ayoze Perez, Tielemans, Maddison, Choudhury; Vardy.
