Leicester City vs. Manchester United

The Foxes, who are now at the bottom of the standings, are still looking for their first top-flight triumph.

Erik ten Hag, the manager of United, must have been worried that his team would suffer a third straight Premier League loss prior to their matchup with Liverpool.

The atmosphere at Old Trafford has improved in just two games, though, as United followed up a 2-1 victory over bitter rivals Liverpool with a 1-0 victory at Southampton.

The most recent victory occurred in very different circumstances and conditions than the match with Liverpool, but Ten Hag will draw encouragement from that as he works to make United into a squad that doesn’t appear lackadaisical and uninterested in competing against the bottom teams in the division.

With a stunning finish at St. Mary’s, Bruno Fernandes responded to criticism of his performance, scoring for the first time since May 2.

Ten Hag won’t let his team’s four goals in two games overstate their accomplishments, but they have passed the first part of their test of character with flying colours.

With Leicester losing three straight Premier League games, Brendan Rodgers expects a similar response from his team.

Unlike against Arsenal and Southampton, there were encouraging signs from the performance at Chelsea, however it must be remembered that the Foxes played for 62 minutes plus added time with just 10 men.

The persistent speculation surrounding key players has undoubtedly not helped Leicester, but that cannot be used as an excuse when too many players have struggled in the first few games of the season.

Only James Maddison has shown exceptional performance, and Rodgers will be anxious for the playmaker to make a quick recovery from a minor muscle issue.

Leicester hasn’t lost to United in five games going into this match; the last time United won at home on Thursday was in July 2020.

Despite Rodgers’ assertion that he is “hopeful” about Maddison’s health, the midfielder may only be used as a replacement for Leicester.

Ayoze Perez might be given a chance down the right side, while Wilfred Ndidi will want to be recalled before Boubakary Soumare.

Youri Tielemans is anticipated to start in the middle of the field unless anything changes regarding his future.

Ten Hag may decide to give Casemiro some playing time against Arsenal on Sunday, maybe replacing either Scott McTominay or Christian Eriksen.

Cristiano Ronaldo's next match

The rest of Manchester United’s starting lineup, barring any injuries, may remain the same. Cristiano Ronaldo will only be chosen as a replacement if he is still with the team.

Anthony Martial, who has been dealing with an Achilles problem, will at most be named to the bench.

Ward, Castagne, Amartey, Evans, Justin, Ndidi, Tielemans, Dewsbury-Hall, Perez, Barnes, and Vardy might be Leicester City’s starting lineup.

De Gea, Dalot, Varane, Martinez, Malacia, Casemiro, Eriksen, Elanga, Fernandes, Sancho, and Rashford might be Manchester United’s starting eleven.

1-3 for Leicester City Microsoft United
Even though Leicester lost at the weekend, there was enough in their performance to indicate that a victory might be just around the corner. However, United is once again playing with assurance, so we anticipate an away victory in the East Midlands.
