Manchester United’s Premier League form has actually been pretty decent for the most part, it’s just that our cross-town rivals are playing so incredibly well right now. Anyway, next up is a game against Leicester City, who’ll be tough to beat at home.
Ahead of the game, we’ve drawn up the likely starting line-up that Jose Mourinho will use for the encounter, and it includes some huge names.
Check out Man United’s predicted XI vs Leicester City here:
David de Gea will start in goal and he’ll get the now customary back tow of Chris Smalling and Phil Jones in front of him. Due to Antonio Valencia’s injury, Ashley Young will be pushed over to the right-hand side, giving Luke Shaw a huge opportunity to make the left-back spot his own.
Then we’ll see Nemanja Matic return to the team following him getting a midweek rest. Paul Pogba will play in his first Premier League game following suspension, and he’ll be hoping to have a huge impact on proceedings.
Jesse Lingard has been in sensational form recently so it makes sense to keep starting him. Juan Mata will come back into the XI, with Marcus Rashford likely getting the nod on the left. Romelu Lukaku will, of course, lead the line.
