Just a couple of seasons ago Leicester were being touted as the team primed to break up the established Premier League top six, but things can change very quickly in football. It’s still early days yet, but Leicester’s start to the season has been nothing short of woeful. Currently rock bottom of the table, with only a single point from four games, the Foxes need to find some form — and fast. 

In that regard, the visit of Man Utd isn’t especially well timed for the home side. While the Red Devils also endured a tough start to the season — the 4-0 defeat to Brentford was humiliating for such a historic club — things are slowly turning around under new boss Erik ten Hag. An impressive win over bitter rivals Liverpool was followed by victory over a struggling Southampton, and Man Utd will now look to pile further misery on Leicester.

For all the debate surrounding Man Utd’s decline, a win here could see the club jump up as high as 5th in the EPL table, which would be an excellent platform to build from, especially as the club has just confirmed the signing of young winger Antony from Ajax. Conversely, Leicester certainly aren’t dreaming of European qualification right now; they simply need the three points just to have a shot at climbing out of the relegation zone. 

Here's how they line up: 

Leicester: Ward, Thomas, Ndidi, Evans, Justin; Soumaré, Maddison, Tielemans, Dewsbury-Hall, Barnes, Vardy

Man Utd: De Gea, Dalot, Varane, Martínez, Malacia, McTominay, Eriksen,  Elanga, Bruno Fernandes, Sancho, Rashford

Can Man Utd keep their win streak going and climb further up the table, or will Leicester finally claim that first victory of the season? Find out by watching the Leicester vs Man Utd live stream.
