Manchester United will lock horns with Leicester City at King Power Stadium on Thursday night, hoping to pick up a positive result away from home. The visitors will be coming into the match on the back of a narrow 1-0 victory over Southampton, whereas the Foxes recorded a 2-1 defeat to 10-men Chelsea.
Erik Ten Hag will probably opt for the 4-3-3 formation with a couple of tweaks from the last game, as Casemiro will likely make his debut this weekend.
4-3-3 Predicted Manchester United Lineup Vs Leicester City
David de Gea is expected to start between the sticks for the upcoming clash. The Spanish shot-stopper would look to put up a strong performance and secure a clean sheet on Thursday.
Raphael Varane is expected to start at the heart of United’s backline, with new signing Lisandro Martinez slotting into the right-centre back position. Diogo Dalot should start at the right-back position, whereas Tyrell Malacia will fill in on the other flank as the left-back.
New signing Casemiro is expected to start in the defensive midfield position, whereas Bruno Fernandes will slot in as the attacking midfielder.
Christian Eriksen remains a sure-fire starter for Manchester United this week, and it’ll be an understatement to say The Red Devils will be highly dependent on the Denmark international’s creative work if they wish to pick up a win on Thursday.
Fred will have to settle for a place on the bench, but he could be brought on in the second half of the contest if needed.
Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford will take up the wide positions, causing menace for Brendan Rodger’s men down the right and left-wing, respectively.
Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to lead the line for Manchester United in midweek. The Portugal international’s adept movement in front of the goal could cause a lot of trouble for the Foxes’ defence that has conceded ten goals in their opening four league fixtures.
Anthony Elanga could be brought off the bench as an impact substitute in the second forty-five minutes of the match.
