CONFIRMED: Leicester and Manchester United line-ups

Leicester City

Here is how Leicester City and Manchester United will line up for this afternoon’s Premier League match:

Leicester City starting XI: Schmeichel, De Laet, Morgan, Moore, Konchesky, Hammond, Cambiasso, Drinkwater, Vardy, Nugent, Ulloa

Subs: Hamer, James, King, Schlupp, Mahrez, Wasilewski, Wood

Manchester United starting XI: De Gea, Rafael, Evans, Blackett, Rojo, Herrera, Blind, Di Maria, Rooney, van Persie, Falcao

Subs: Lindegaard, Shaw, Smalling, Fletcher Valencia, Mata, Januzaj

Following their 4-0 thrashing of Queens Park Rangers last time out, Manchester United now get to show if they can be just as effective away from a newly rejuvenated Old Trafford.

Leicester City welcome Louis van Gaal’s side to the King Power Stadium having impressed since their return to the top flight, and they will be hoping to upset the odds this afternoon.

A couple of of ex-United players could have their say for the Foxes, with Danny Drinkwater and Ritchie De Laet both starting, although on loan Nick Powell cannot feature against his parent club.

With no Champions League football this season, United have been able to focus fully on this match, and with Radamel Falcao seeking his first goal since his loan move and Angel Di Maria no doubt hoping to replicate his man-of-the-match performance from last weekend, Nigel Pearson’s side could be in for a tough afternoon.
