Predicted Man United line-up to face Leicester City in the Premier League
Manchester United will travel to the King Power Stadium to face Leicester City as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hopes to bounce back to winning ways on Sunday.
Solskjaer’s winning run as Manchester United’s caretaker manager came to an end on Tuesday after his team drew 2-2 with Burnley at Old Trafford. However, the Norwegian would have been proud with the way his team came back from 2-0 down to salvage a point in stoppage time.
Anthony Martial missed the Burnley game due to injury but could return to the squad to face Leicester. Paul Pogba remains a doubt for the trip to the King Power Stadium after he picked up an injury against Burnley.
Probable Manchester United XI
Manager: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
David De Gea (GK)
De Gea is United’s undisputed No.1 in goal and he will be hoping to keep a clean sheet on Sunday.
Ashley Young (RB)
Young has been impressive under Solskjaer, dishing out consistent performances at right-back.
Victor Lindelof (CB)
Lindelof scored a stoppage-time equaliser to complete United’s comeback against Burnley in midweek. He is playing at the top of his form and will keep his place in the team.
Phil Jones (CB)
Partnering Lindelof at the back would be Jones, who’ll have to be at his best to stop Jamie Vardy and co. at the weekend.
Luke Shaw (LB)
Shaw has made the left-back position his own this season. He is a certain starter against the Foxes.
Nemanja Matic (CM)
Matic has been so vital for Manchester United under Solskjaer as his presence in the engine room gives the flair players the freedom to express themselves.
Ander Herrera (CM)
Herrera was rested in the midweek against Burnley and is likely to be recalled into the Manchester United starting XI at Leicester.
Alexis Sanchez (LW)
With Martial a doubt, Solskjaer could hand Alexis Sanchez a start on the left. The Chilean would be desperate to make a mark and guide United to all three points on Sunday.
Jesse Lingard (CAM)
Pogba remains doubtful for Sunday’s game after he picked up an injury against Burnley. For the No.10 role, Lingard could get the nod ahead of Mata.
Romelu Lukaku (RW)
Lukaku could start on the right wing and give United’s attack a different dimension against Leicester.

Marcus Rashford (ST)
Rashford will be desperate to get on the score-sheet as Manchester United look to tame the Foxes at the King Power Stadium.
