Leicester vs Man Utd – Premier League preview and team news

Manchester United will be aiming to show more of the form which saw them thrash Queens Park Rangers last time out as they visit fellow another promoted side in Leicester City.

For Nigel Pearson’s men, it is another very tough assignment, but despite their testing fixture list, they have looked right at home in the Premier League. Draws at home to Everton and Arsenal have been backed up with an equally impressive win at Stoke City, where they defended strongly and took their chance on the break thanks to in-form record signing Leonardo Ulloa.

The Foxes will have no fear here despite seeing Man Utd look a side transformed in their last game, with their own record buy Angel Di Maria producing a quality display to inspire the former Premier League champions to a 4-0 victory. The Argentine was not the only positive, as Ander Herrera commanded the midfield and grabbed a goal, while loan signing Radamel Falcao was given a rapturous reception as a substitute.

Kasper Schmeichel should be back in goal for Leicester after missing the game at Stoke, while Matt James is also fit. Nick Powell cannot play against his parent club.

Louis van Gaal could hand Luke Shaw his first Man Utd appearance. Chris Smalling returns from injury but Michael Carrick is still out through injury.
