For United, it’s been a strong start to the season on the whole but with just one win in their last four they’ll also be looking to shake off a minor wobble.

Matches between the two sides are always entertaining encounters with both teams looking to play on the front foot and with three points being much-needed for both sides, it’d be a surprise to see anything different on Saturday afternoon.

Brendan Rodgers has a number of injury considerations ahead of the clash with United.

Jamie Vardy and Jonny Evans could be fit to return for the Foxes.

Vardy suffered a chest injury in the 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace and received a lengthy spell of treatment but should return alongside Evans who is expected to return from illness.

Wilfred Ndidi picked up a hamstring injury ahead of the international break and it’s expected that this game will come too soon for the midfielder.

James Justin isn’t far from a return following a nasty knee injury but is expected to miss out, while Wesley Fofana is a long-term absentee.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should be boosted by the return of Marcus Rashford to his squad.

The forward has been out for several months after undergoing surgery on a shoulder injury but has returned to full training and should be in contention.

However defensive duo Harry Maguire and Raphael Varane are both expected to miss out this weekend due to injury.

Maguire suffered a calf problem before the international break and was ruled out of England duty as a result.

Solskjaer admitted before the break that he hoped that Maguire would be fit to face Leicester but the centre-back is yet to return to full training.

Varane will also miss the clash against the Foxes after picking up an injury for France during their UEFA Nations League clash with Spain last week.
