Manchester United will lock horns with Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Sunday evening, hoping to pick up a win and proceed into the semi-finals of the FA Cup.

The Red Devils will be coming into the match on the back of a narrow 1-0 win over AC Milan in the Europa League, whereas Brendan Rodgers’ men recorded a thumping 5-0 win versus Sheffield United last week.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will probably opt for the 4-2-3-1 formation with a couple of tweaks from the last game. Edinson Cavani might get the nod over Mason Greenwood, whereas Paul Pogba looks likely to make his way back into the starting eleven.

Defence

David de Gea is expected to replace Dean Henderson in goal for the upcoming away encounter. The Spanish shot-stopper would be looking to put up a strong performance and secure a clean sheet on his return.

Victor Lindelof will continue to form the centre-half partnership with skipper Harry Maguire at the heart of United’s backline.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka is a guaranteed starter at the right-back position, whereas Luke Shaw will fill in on the other flank as the left-back. The English duo would be expected to stay compact and keep their shape defensively.

Midfield

Paul Pogba is expected to start in the central midfield position, whereas Scott McTominay will slot in as the defensive midfielder. The former scored the winning goal against the Rossoneri in midweek, and he’d to hoping to repeat more of the same on Sunday.

Bruno Fernandes and Mason Greenwood remain sure-fire starters for United this week, and it’ll be an understatement to say The Red Devils will be highly dependent on the former’s creative work if they wish to pick up a positive result against the Foxes.

Daniel James looks likely to start the game over on the left flank, looking for opportunities to stretch the attack using his pace and directness whenever possible.

Marcus Rashford, who was replaced by Pogba at half-time yesterday, remains a concern ahead of the clash.

“Marcus a little twinge – we couldn’t take a chance on him. He couldn’t have played more than 45 minutes.” – Solskjaer revealed on his post-match press conference.

Fred will have to settle for a place on the bench but might be called upon in the latter stages of the game if needed.

Attack

Edinson Cavani came close to starting against AC Milan, so he should be fit to lead the line for the visitors against Leicester this weekend. The Uruguayan’s adept movement in front of the goal can be utilized as an asset against Rodgers’ side.
