Leicester City vs Manchester United: How to watch live, stream link, team news

Leicester City host Manchester United at the King Power Stadium on Thursday with the Foxes and Red Devils heading in opposite directions. 


Brendan Rodgers’s Leicester have yet to win this season and after selling Wesley Fofana amid plenty of financial restraints on the club, things aren’t looking too rosy at the King Power Stadium. As for United, things are looking a lot better as Erik ten Hag’s side secured back-to-back wins with a huge home victory against Liverpool followed up by a resilient victory at Southampton.

However, Erik Ten Hag will be aware that his side will be in for a tough test against a Leicester side who are hungry to put their three points on the board. But the Foxes could be slightly distracted by Wesley Fofana's imminent departure to Chelsea and Arsenal's continued speculation with midfield maestro Youri Tielemans. 

What time does Leicester vs Manchester United kick off?

Leicester are reeling after three-straight defeats and just one point from their first four games of the season. There is an air of negativity around the Foxes and Brendan Rodgers is battling against disgruntled fans who have seen their talented squad take an almighty leap backwards over the summer. With Kasper Schmeichel and Wesley Fofana leaving, Leicester look particularly vulnerable defensively and are lacking in confidence.

Anthony Martial missed Saturday’s win at Southampton with an Achilles problem and it remains to be seen whether the France forward will be fit enough for this game. Victor Lindelof is back in training with the squad though, having missed the first four games of the season. According to Ten Hag's latest update, Phil Jones, Facundo Pellistri, Axel Tuanzebe and Brandon Williams are all sidelined for the time being.

Manchester United team news, injuries, lineup options Brandon Williams, Victor Lindelof and Facuno Pellistri remain out, while Anthony Martial is battling back from an Achilles injury and could play some part. It will be intriguing to see if ETH brings Casemiro in for his first start and if he brings back Cristiano Ronaldo, Luke Shaw or Harry Maguire to rotate his squad. 

Ahead of the Premier League’s fifth-round fixtures, United sit eighth in the table following wins over Liverpool and Southampton. We can make it three straight top-flight wins for the first time since last December with victory in the East Midlands. The Foxes are rooted to the foot of the table.
