One of the last fixtures Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would have wanted this weekend is the visit of Leicester City.
Manchester United are without a win in their previous three matches after 1-1 draws against Wolves and Southampton either side of a 2-1 loss at home to Crystal Palace.
Rocking up at Old Trafford this afternoon are Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester, who currently sit third in the Premier League.
The Foxes, along with Liverpool and Manchester City, are unbeaten so far and will be looking to gatecrash the top-six this season.
It certainly wouldn’t be a surprise to see Leicester finish above the Red Devils come May.

In fact, we’ve produced the best possible combined XI from their two sides and more Leicester players feature than United players!
Let’s take a look:
Goalkeeper | David de Gea
Not quite as straightforward as in recent years due to De Gea’s dodgy form but he still edges out Kasper Schmeichel.
Left-back | Ben Chilwell
It comes down to Chilwell vs Luke Shaw. A 22-year-old Englishman vs a 24-year-old Englishman.
We’re going for the younger option in Chilwell.
Centre-back | Harry Maguire
United gave Leicester £80m for Maguire so he’s obviously in the side.
Centre-back | Caglar Soyuncu
Leicester haven’t missed Maguire because of the performances of 23-year-old Söyüncü next to Jonny Evans. He gets our vote instead of Victor Lindelof.
Right-back | Aaron Wan-Bissaka
The £50m man has been brilliant since he arrived at Old Trafford.
Defensive midfielder | Wilfred Ndidi
One of the most under-rated players in the Premier League. The 22-year-old looks set to become a world-beater.
Central midfield | Paul Pogba
If United didn’t have Pogba, their midfield would be pretty dire. The World Cup winner is frustrating but, on his way, he’s one of the very best.
Central midfield | Youri Tielemans
Signed permanently for a club-record £40m in the summer. It looks to be money well spent for the 22-year-old.
Attacking midfield | James Maddison
The 22-year-old is seriously talented. Already being linked with a January move to United but is probably worth in excess of £50m right now.
Striker | Marcus Rashford
Rashford just edges out Martial. But the 21-year-old needs to become a more regular goalscorer.
Striker | Jamie Vardy
Vardy’s record under Rodgers is pretty remarkable. By far the oldest player in this combined XI but the 32-year-old is still lethal.News Now - Sport News
