Manchester United will play hosts to Leicester City at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon hoping to seal a victory in front of their home supporters. The Red Devils come into this game on the back of a disappointing 1-1 draw versus Southampton before the international break. However, Brendan Rodgers’ side will be a tricky opposition for them as they are yet to be beaten in the Premier League this season.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expected to opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation and might name an unchanged starting XI for this weekend’s league encounter versus the Foxes.
4-2-3-1 Manchester United Predicted Lineup To Face Leicester City
David De Gea will operate as Solskjaer’s first-choice keeper once again despite failing to keep a clean sheet in any of his last three league starts for the Red Devils. Both Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire will continue their partnership at the centre of the Man United backline as they look to keep the Foxes at bay on Saturday.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka will lineup in the right-back position, hoping to cause more problems going forward. Luke Shaw is still sidelined with a serious injury so Ashley Young will continue to feature as the left-back. Man United need to put in a much-improved display than what they did against the Saints to ensure they can secure three points against Brendan Rodgers’ men this weekend.
Both Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay will play as the anchormen in midfield as they try to dominate possession and cook up some decent goal-scoring chances for the front players. The dynamic duo will also need to work hard inside their own half so that they can provide adequate protection to the Red Devils backline.
The talented trio of Andreas Pereira, Juan Mata and Daniel James should keep their place in Solskjaer’s first XI for this clash at Old Trafford. James has been Man United’s best weapon going forward over the past few weeks before the international break. Therefore, we can expect him to cause a lot of headaches for the Foxes defenders this Saturday.
Anthony Martial will likely miss out on this encounter due to injury. However, Jesse Lingard should be fit for a place on Solskjaer’s bench and might come on during the match if required.
Marcus Rashford will lead the line for the Mancunian giants up top. He has struggled to score goals consistently in the Premier League this season which is a cause for concern. However, the English striker will hope that he can put an end to his barren goal-scoring run by finding the back of the net against Leicester this weekend.
