Duo fit as Solskjaer makes 4 changes | Expected Man Utd line-up vs Leicester

Manchester United take on Leicester City at the King Power on Sunday afternoon. Here is the line-up I think Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will go with:


Manchester United will look to maintain the pressure on the top four with a win over Leicester City at the King Power on Sunday afternoon. Here is the line-up I think Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will go with:

Goalkeeper: David De Gea will have been disappointed to have conceded twice during the draw with Burnley in midweek but obviously the Spaniard will keep his place between the sticks this weekend.

Defence: Chris Smalling was named on the bench on Tuesday night after recovering from a foot injury so he’ll be hoping to feature on Sunday but I think he’ll be named among the substitutes once again. Victor Lindelof is turning in to a key player under Solskjaer so he’ll keep his place in defence while Eric Bailly could come in for Phil Jones alongside the Swedish international.

Luke Shaw should keep his place at left-back while Ashley Young is expected to start once again at right-back. Diogo Dalot is an option for Solskjaer but I think the Man Utd boss will stick with the experience of Young.

Midfield: Nemanja Matic should once again start in the holding role in front of the defence while Paul Pogba will be looking to continue his resurgence under Solskjaer after getting on the score-sheet for the ninth time in midweek.


Andreas Pereira will be disappointed with his error that led to the second Burnley goal and the youngster is expected to make way against Leicester with Ander Herrera coming back in to the Man Utd midfield.

Attack: Anthony Martial missed the game on Tuesday night with a minor knock but the Frenchman is back in contention and I think we’ll see him recalled on the left side of attack this weekend.

That will free Marcus Rashford to move back in to the central striking role after his stint out wide against Burnley with Romelu Lukaku the man likely to make way.

Juan Mata could also drop to the bench with Jesse Lingard getting a recall after being rested in midweek and Alexis Sanchez is expected to return to the squad after he missed out against the Clarets.

Here is how we think United will line-up:
