Predicted Leicester vs Manchester United Possible starting lineup, team news, injury, h2h results, kickoff time
Manchester United will return to action in the Premier League after the international break with a trip to King Power to face Leicester City.
United’s form declined just before the break, with a 1-0 home loss to Aston Villa followed by a 1-1 draw with Everton at Old Trafford to raise new questions about Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s management.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored a decisive late Champions League win against Villarreal between those games to give the Norwegian some breathing space, but United will be desperate to get back to winning ways in the league.
However, Leicester, hopes the international break could be a turning point, as Brendan Rodgers’ team has failed to match last season’s highs so far.
Leicester vs Man United is scheduled for a 3pm BST kick-off on Saturday, October 16, 2021.
