Team News: Leicester City
There aren’t many selection issues, with just the sole fitness concern for the Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers to be concerned about from of an almost fully healthy group. Ricardo Pereira (Cruciate Ligament Injury) is sidelined. Caglar Söyüncü will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.
It seems likely that The Foxes look set to use a 3-4-3 formation, utilising Kasper Schmeichel, Jonny Evans, Wes Morgan, Ryan Bennett, Luke Thomas, Onyinye Wilfred Ndidi, Youri Tielemans, James Justin, Harvey Barnes, Jamie Vardy and Ayoze Perez.
Team News: Manchester United
With a fully injury-free squad to choose from, Manchester United boss Ole Solskjær has zero fitness concerns to report ahead of this match.
We’re of the thinking that The Red Devils appear most likely to make use of a 4-2-3-1 system using David De Gea, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Harry Maguire, Victor Nilsson-Lindelof, Brandon Williams, Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic, Mason Greenwood, Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.
Leicester City will do well to get anything against this Manchester United side who we reckon will get a goal themselves and run out victorious.
With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a narrow 0-1 victory for Manchester United when the full-time whistle blows.
Little in this one.
