Leicester vs Manchester United: Premier League – LIVE!

United lost 1-0 to Aston Villa and drew 1-1 with Everton in two home games before the international break to leave Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with questions to answer.

Solskjaer will be without his two first-choice centre-backs because Raphael Varane and Harry Maguire are ruled out through injury, so Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly will have the task of keeping Jamie Vardy quiet against Leicester.

United go into the game fourth in the table, two points off leaders Chelsea, but Solskjaer knows he is expected to build a title challenge following the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo.

Leicester have made a slow start to the season under Brendan Rodgers, who this week distanced himself from links to the Newcastle job, but this could be a cracker.

With kick-off at 3pm BST, follow all the action from the King Power Stadium.

It feels like a big afternoon for Manchester United.

Their form dipped just prior to the break, with a 1-0 home defeat to Aston Villa followed by a 1-1 draw with Everton at Old Trafford to raise fresh questions about Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s management.

United will be desperate to return to winning ways in the Premier League.

Leicester, meanwhile, will be hoping that the international break can prove a turning point, with Brendan Rodgers’ side so far having failed to match the highs of last season.
