The Red Devils hope to continue their newly-found momentum when they face Leicester at King Power Stadium.

Manchester United will face Leicester City in their sixth Premier League game of the season.

Erik ten Hag has used the same lineup that defeated Southampton 1-0 on Saturday.

A four-man defence line of Tyrell Malacia, Lisandro Martinez, Raphael Varane, and Diogo Dalot play in front of David de Gea.

Christian Eriksen and Scott McTominay form Ten Hag’s midfield duo in the absence of Casemiro.

Up front, the trio of Jadon Sancho, Bruno Fernandes, and Anthony Elanga play behind Marcus Rashford as Man Utd’s target striker.
