Tournament: Premier League 2019/20
Time: 15:00 at GMT and 19:30 at IST
Arena: Old Trafford
One team comes into it with good form and the other comes into it with struggles and winless in the last three matches. Lets get into preview for both teams-
Manchester United come into this match being winless in past three matches. Ole Gunnar Solksjaer wants to make his side a exhilarating team to watch with high pressing and fast paced. Right now nothing is bearing to fruit for him. They struggled against wolves but showed positive signs in the first half. But everything thing fell apart against Crystal Palace. It is still early in the season but you can’t lose these matches especially at home. They are facing a team many feel could break into top 6. United had a good run of fixtures after Chelsea but have only accumulated only 2 points from 3 matches. They need to win this match and need their important players to step up.

3. Eric Bailly is a long term absentee. Diego Dalot might return after International break. Luke Shaw has a hamstring problem and could miss the Leicester match. Anthony martial is expected to be fit for Leicester. (Manchester Evening News)
Probable Line up:
As of today Leicester are 3rd in the Premier League. Its just 4 matches so it will change but they have started very well. Getting a hard fought draw to Wolves and a dominating second half display against Chelsea earning them a draw was motivating for Leicester fans. They followed it by beating Sheffield United and Bournemouth. My doubt about Leicester was can they pick up points from the fixtures they are expected to win. A win against United could send shivers among other teams. Brendan Rodgers is creating something beautiful up here. This could be the real test for Leicester. It is still early but could show us whether they can break into top 6.
Ndidi and Chilwell returned from injury against Bournemouth. Right now there is no fresh injury concern for Leicester.
Probable Line Up:
Leicester City 0-1 Manchester United
Manchester United 2-1 Leicester City
Leicester City 2-2 Manchester United
Manchester United 2-0 Leicester City
Manchester United 1-0 Leicester City
Leicester City will give Manchester United a very tough game. Rodgers will try to keep his side compact and make it lethal on counter. They have a brave and a strong physical side but i beleive they will come short at Old Trafford. Its not been like the Fortress it used to be but at the Moment Ole needs a win. There could be big implications for this young United side if they come up short here. United’s new look defence will help them overcome Leicester where Maguire will reunite with Leicester but this time as an opponent. So i expect a Strong physical match with United nicking a winner.
