Mourinho Reveals Key Man Utd Player Absent for Leicester
Manchester United host defending champions Leicester City at Old Trafford in the first game of this weekend’s Premier League action, on Saturday lunchtime.
The Red Devils ended their three-game losing streak with a 3-1 win at Northampton Town in the EFL Cup midweek but Jose Mourinho will be keen to get his side back on track in the league.
Mourinho has been speaking to the media today at his pre-game press conference before welcoming the Foxes to the Theatre of Dreams tomorrow.
The United boss was able to confirm that Anthony Martial will not be fit to make his return to the team. It is expected that Marcus Rashford will keep his place down the left wing after some promising signs in the game time he has been given so far this season.
Martial lasted only 38 minutes of last weekend’s defeat at Vicarage Road before going off injured.

Jose Mourinho has seen his side suffer defeats to Manchester City and Watford in successive weekends and will be hoping to get the better of a Leicester side who have made a slow start to the season themselves.
United were one of only three teams who did not lose to Leicester City in the Premier League last season on their way to a shock title victory. Louis van Gaal guided his side to two draws.
