United are set to be without Paul Pogba. "Paul won't be fit unless he has had a miraculous recovery overnight," said Solskjaer.

The club will also be without Anthony Martial, whereas, Luke Shaw, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Jesse Lingard could also miss out.

Leicester have a fit squad and majority of the players are all available.

This is a huge boost for the side.

United have work to do against in-form Leicester

After a convincing 4-0 win against Chelsea in the opening game, United have collected just two points from the next three.

They have conceded poor goals, missed penalties and failed to show consistency in attack.

However, Leicester have been in strong form and United need serious work to do.

They will be without key players as well and that's another worry.
