Predicted Leicester line-up to play Manchester United: Kramaric to start

Old Trafford Statues

Match between Manchester United and Leicester City to be played on Saturday 31st January 2015 at 15:00. Venue: Old Trafford, Manchester.

Leicester City may be bottom of the Premier League table but their FA Cup victory away to Tottenham Hotspur will have given them plenty of confidence heading into their next match.

That is against Manchester United at Old Trafford, a side the Foxes have already defeated once this season on an unforgettable day back in September.

Back then Leicester were flying high and three United goals – including a beauty from Angel Di Maria – could not prevent Nigel Pearson’s side from ultimately triumphing.

Two goals from Leonardo Ulloa and one apiece from David Nugent, Esteban Cambiasso and Jamie Vardy put Louis van Gaal’s men to the sword and they will be hoping to do the same again.

A match at Old Trafford is always a challenge and United’s defence is unlikely to be as shaky as it was that day, but Leicester’s win against Spurs means they will be confident heading out on the road once more.

Below is the side we predict Pearson will pick on Saturday:

Predicted Leicester City starting line-up: Schwarzer, Simpson, Morgan, Wasilewski, De Laet, Vardy, King, Drinkwater, Schlupp, Kramaric, Ulloa
