Manchester United return to Premier League action today against Leicester City in the afternoon, MySportDab reports. 

The match is the first of a difficult run of matches for United over the next two weeks.

A win today at the King Power is crucial for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team and the international break has affected some preparations.

Fred and Edinson Cavani both played against each other in Brazil’s 4-1 win against Uruguay on Friday morning and remain unavailable.

Team News

The International break also affected defender Raphael Varane, who suffered an injury in France’s Nations League final match against Spain.

Varane will be out a few weeks on the sidelines.

Defender Harry Maguire is also a serious doubt for the match today after his injury against Aston Villa on September 25.

The captain returned to full team training on Friday morning but he’s chances of playing are slim.

The only good news for Manchester United right now is the return of Marcus Rashford, back to fitness.

Rashford has not played any match so far this season after a shoulder surgery in the summer.

However, the Englishman has now taken part in full-contact training for two weeks and played in a friendly against Blackburn Rovers last week.

How United could Line-up against Leicester City.

Goalkeeper – David De Gea

De Gea is currently the No.1 Goalkeeper and should start against Leicester City.

Defence – Shaw, Bailly, Lindelof, Wan-Bissaka

With Varane and Maguire unavailable, Bailly and Lindelof could start in the Manchester United defence.

Shaw and Wan-Bissaka should keep their places on both sides of the defence.

Midfield: Pogba, Scott McTominay

Fred is unavailable so Pogba is more likely to play in a CM role alongside Scott McTominay against Leicester City.

Attack: Sancho, Fernandes, Greenwood, Ronaldo

Despite a poor start at United, Sancho has impressed in recent weeks and could get another start against Leicester City.

Fernandes is expected to keep his place as the No.10.

Greenwood should start on the right wing and Cristiano Ronaldo leads the Manchester United attack.

Leicester City Vs Manchester United kick off?
