Leicester City Team News

Leicester will be without Wesley Fofana, James Justin, and Wilfred Ndidi due to injuries, but Jonny Evans’ presence in the middle of the defence might provide the Foxes a major boost.

Evans did not play for Northern Ireland during the international break owing to a combination of injuries and illness, but he might face his former club on Saturday.

Kelechi Iheanacho and Jamie Vardy, who both scored against Palace before the international break, might play as the front two, while Ricardo Pereira and Boubakary Soumare are battling for a place in the starting XI.

Manchester United Team News

Marcus Rashford, who has healed from a shoulder procedure, will return to the Manchester United group.

The Red Devils will be without Raphael Varane due to a groyne problem, and Harry Maguire is also unlikely to play after returning to the grass on Thursday morning, so Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof will be the two centre-backs on the field.

Due to international obligations, both Fred and Edinson Cavani will be unavailable, which means Paul Pogba will play in a midfield two alongside Scott McTominay, with Jadon Sancho on the left, Mason Greenwood on the right, and Bruno Fernandes operating immediately behind Cristiano Ronaldo.

Possible Lineups

Leicester City XI: Schmeichel; Pereira, Evans, Soyuncu, Bertrand; Lookman, Soumare, Tielemans, Barnes; Vardy, Iheanacho

Manchester United XI: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Bailly, Lindelof, Shaw; McTominay, Pogba; Greenwood, Fernandes, Sancho; Ronaldo
