Manchester United are still riding high in the Premier League table, sitting fourth with 14 points, just a couple behind leaders Chelsea. But that position belies the fact that they've only picked up one point from their previous two games and need a win here if they're going to be genuine title challengers this season.

The jury is very much still out on that one, because although Utd have clearly improved under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, questions remain over whether they're consistent enough to give Chelsea, Liverpool and Man City a proper fight this year. A draw with Everton and a loss to Aston Villa in their previous two games suggest they may not be quite there yet.

But a win over Leicester would keep them in the hunt, and could even take them to the top of the table depending on results elsewhere. But they'll be without several players, as Raphael Varane was injured while on international duty while Fred and Edinson Cavani won't feature having also been away for qualifiers. 

On the plus side, Harry Maguire is back from injury and starts in place of Varane. Cristiano Ronaldo also starts after his controversial absence last time out, while Nemanja Matic, Paul Pogba and Jadon Sancho are all recalled.

Whatever Utd's problems, Leicester City have more things to worry about. They only narrowly missed out on Champions League qualification last season, but those days seem a long way off right now. They find themselves marooned in mid-table and without a win in their last four games.

Injuries, particularly in defense, have hit them hard. Wesley Fofana, James Justin and Wilfred Ndidi are all still out, but Jonny Evans returns against his former club. Daniel Amartey, Ricardo Pereira, Boubakary Soumare and James Maddison are all brought in too, as Brendan Rodgers makes five changes.

Here's how they line up:

Leicester City: Schmeichel, Castagne, Soyuncu, Evans, Pereira, Maddison, Tielemans, Amartey, Vardy, Iheanacho, Soumare

Manchester United: De Gea, Wan Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, Matic, Fernandes, Pogba, Greenwood, Ronaldo, Sancho
