Aaron Wan-Bissaka & Paul Pogba: Man United early team news vs Leicester City

Manchester United vs Leicester City

When the Premier League restarts after the international break, Man United welcome Leicester City to Old Trafford.

After four rounds of the season, Leicester are third in the standings, while Man United are eighth.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side will head into the Foxes match without a win in their last three games (two draws, one defeat).

Meanwhile, Leicester are on a three-match winning run.

Will Aaron Wan-Bissaka be fit to face Leicester?

Aaron Wan-Bissaka has enjoyed a bright start to his Man United career.

While the right-back struggled against his former employers Crystal Palace, overall, Wan-Bissaka’s performances have been positive.

Indeed, Wan-Bissaka was called up to the current England squad. However, on Tuesday, the defender pulled out of international duty with a back problem.

Man United have posted the following injury update on Wan-Bissaka:

Manchester United defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka has been forced to withdraw from the England squad due to a back issue.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be hoping the 21-year-old is available for United’s next assignment, the Premier League fixture with Leicester City at Old Trafford on 14 September.

Accordingly, the hope is that AWB will be fit to face Leicester.
