After a terrible start that saw Manchester United sit bottom of the table after the first two games, a win this evening would see Erik ten Hag’s side leapfrog rivals Liverpool into fifth and make it three wins on the bounce. Their 1-0 win over Southampton at St.Mary’s at the weekend was their first on the road since March, a result that ended a run of seven straight away defeats in the Premier League.

Having let a 2-0 lead slip away on the opening day to Brentford and following it up with defeats against Arsenal, Southampton and Chelsea, there is no doubt that Brendan Rodgers future is in doubt. The Leicester manager is looking to avoid losing four consecutive league games for the first time since April 2012 when he was in charge of Swansea and avoid the sack at the same time.

His job has been made harder after Wesley Fofana finally got his transfer wish, joining Chelsea for a reported £75m fee after a month of speculation.

The only good news for the Foxes however, is they are unbeaten in their last four games against tonight’s opponents (2 wins, 2 draws) and will be hoping to finally get their season going after their disappointing start.

Leicester team news

Brendan Rodgers is sweating on the fitness of influential midfielder James Maddison, who missed last weekends game against Chelsea with a hamstring problem. The English midfielder has been in sensational form in 2022, either scoring or assisting in each of his last seven Premier League games, scoring nine goals and providing six assists in his 20 appearances during this calendar year.

Long term absentees Ricardo Pereira and Ryan Bertrand are ruled out yet again, while Wesley Fofana has completed his move to Chelsea for a reported £75m. Wilfred Ndidi started from the bench against the Blues at the weekend, but should come back into the starting XI.

Manchester United team news

The Red Devils will once again be without forward Anthony Martial at the King Power, while Victor Lindelof has returned to training, but this game may come too soon for the Swede after coming through just one session so far.

New signing Casemiro is pushing for his first start for the club after impressing from the bench against Southampton, while Cristiano Ronaldo is pushing for just his second start of the campaign.

New signing Antony wasn’t signed in time for tonight’s game, but manager Erik ten Hag has given us a taste of what fans can expect from the €100m man:

“He’s a player with a winning mentality and someone who is creative. He likes to dribble, he sees the final pass, he can score a goal and I think the fans will be excited by him and the way he plays his game.

“We signed him the first time he was in Europe and we supported him to find his way. From the first moment, he really impressed in terms of his football qualities and as a person. He’s a fighter and someone who has a real willingness to win games, I like that. He showed that from the first moment in Amsterdam, from the first game with the winning goal. That is what he always contributes to the team – a fighting spirit who makes actions and I expect the same from him here in Manchester.”

Scoreline prediction: Leicester 2-2 Manchester United
