Leicester go into the fixture third on the Premier League table remaining one of three teams to maintaining an unbeaten start to the season with 8 points from their first 4 matches. United on the other hand have had a torrid start compared to their glory yesteryears lying 8th on the log without a win since their opening day hammering of Chelsea.
United are set to receive a major injury boost with boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hoping to see Paul Pogba, Luke Shaw, Jesse Lingard, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Anthony Martial return to action after being absent for their countries through injury.
In-form club player of the month Daniel James is a certain starter with Marcus Rashford expected to lead the line of attack.
Leicester City coach Brendan Rodgers is hopeful of a positive result against the Red Devils despite his side failing to win at Old Trafford since 1998.
Striker Jamie Vardy has been in sensational form for City netting thrice and is expected to cause trouble against a shaky United defence.
The most expensive defender in world football Harry Maguire faces his former employer at his new home for the first time since his £80million move to United over the summer.
Head to Head
Manchester United have won 4 of the last 5 meetings between the two sides with the other being a 2-2 stalemate in December 2017.
