Leicester vs Man United
Leicester City host Manchester United in the first match on Sunday in the Premier League.
Man United are looking to surge back into the top four under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
While United dropped their first points under Solskjaer against Burnley last time out, the Norwegian’s record reads eight wins and one draw.
Will the Red Devils return to winning ways at the King Power Stadium?
Leicester continue to baffle under Claude Puel.
Fans were calling for the Frenchman’s head after defeats to Newport, Southampton and Wolves. But then Leicester pulled off a 1-1 draw at Liverpool last time out.
Alexis Sanchez & Anthony Martial
Several hours before kick off, rumours are doing the rounds about Man United’s XI.
According to the predictions of those in the know, Alexis Sanchez will start the game while Anthony Martial will begin on the bench.
Martial signed a new long term deal with Man United last week. However the French forward is returning from injury.
As for Sanchez, he’s shown some promise under Solskjaer. The Chilean only has two goals for Man United this season.
Man United’s squad vs Leicester
The following set of players were spotted travelling to the King Power Stadium:
Goalkeepers: De Gea, Romero, Grant
Defenders: Lindelof, Young, Bailly, Shaw, Dalot, Jones
Midfielders: Pogba, Herrera, Mata, Fred, Matic, Lingard
Forwards: Martial, Lukaku, Sanchez, Rashford
Social media rumours
Would expect Solskjaer to go back to something like his strongest team today. Would mean Herrera back in and Rashford through the middle. Sanchez could start with Martial only just back from injury.

While Martial might have signed a big new deal this week I think Sanchez will start ahead of him today

Official team news is a long way off, but early indications suggest Alexis Sanchez could start today with Anthony Martial lacking match sharpness. (Cue angry tweets when this is inevitably wrong) #mufc https://t.co/cNQr3pWHGu
