Manchester United vs Leicester Predictions & Match Preview

All eyes will be on Old Trafford when Manchester United and Leicester City face each other in the Premier League round 36. 

The Red Devils aim to build on a 3-1 win over Aston Villa, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. 

Edinson Cavani, who has been scoring goals for fun of late, is widely expected to return to the starting XI, while Anthony Martial remains in the recovery room.

You should bear in mind that Manchester United are eyeing their fifth consecutive win at home ground. 

The Foxes, on the other hand, are on the right track to book their place in the Champions League, but given their defensive in the 4-2 loss to Newcastle United, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts. 

All Justin, Morgan, and Barnes are out of contention with injuries for the away team.

Team News:

United find themselves sweating over the fitness of Harry Maguire, who was taken off at Villa Park with a suspected ankle problem and is highly unlikely to be ready for Tuesday's game, that is if it is not too serious.

The centre-back joins Daniel James, Anthony Martial and Phil Jones in the United treatment room, and given the extremely tight turnaround in fixtures, Solskjaer will certainly rotate his resources.

Eric Bailly should fill the void left by Maguire's absence in defence, while out-of-favour players such as Alex Telles, Nemanja Matic and maybe even Donny van de Beek could benefit from some necessary changes.

Leicester boss Rodgers may also be tempted to rotate with the FA Cup final in the back of his mind, and he has admitted that he will need to be careful over James Maddison and Ricardo Pereira following their returns from injury.

Timothy Castagne could feature on the right if Pereira drops out - with Daniel Amartey returning to the rearguard - but James Justin, Wes Morgan, Harvey Barnes and Jonny Evans are all absent.

Ayoze Perez could feature behind the front two if Rodgers opts to give Maddison the night off, with Iheanacho aiming to build on a tally of 10 goals from his last nine Premier League appearances.

Manchester United possible starting lineup:
Henderson; Tuanzebe, Lindelof, Bailly, Telles; Matic, McTominay, Van de Beek; Mata; Greenwood, Cavani

Leicester City possible starting lineup:
Schmeichel; Amartey, Soyuncu, Fofana; Castagne, Ndidi, Tielemans, Thomas; Perez; Iheanacho, Vardy
