Leicester v Manchester United team news

Erik ten Hag has already confirmed that Anthony Martial is out injured and will once again miss out here.

There is better news on Victor Lindelof, who is back in training and is being monitored ahead of potentially being included here.

Facundo Pellistri is the only other known absentee and the only other changes to the available players could come if United let anyone go ahead of the transfer deadline.

Our prediction: Leicester v Manchester United

United finally broke their away hoodoo against Southampton last time out, and that result looks even better now that the Saints have been Chelsea.

The Foxes are struggling, and the mood around the club has been dampened by a lack of transfer business in a slow summer.

United have to take advantage of that and keep the momentum rolling, and perhaps another 1-0 away win is on the cards.
