Venue: King Power Stadium, Leicester.
Brendan Rodgers will be hoping he can transform the fortunes of his Leicester side as they welcome a faltering Manchester United to town.
The Red Devils have failed to win their last two Premier League games and without having played anyone of note, it is in danger of being an average start to the campaign.
It has been a tough start to the season for the Foxes, who have only won 2 of 7 games played and find themselves languishing down in 13th.
Leicester fans are not giving up hope yet however and with Brendan Rodgers at the helm, they will believe anything is possible.
Kasper Schmeichel is one of the best goalkeepers in the league and he will be doing his bit to keep United at bay for as long as possible.
Jonny Evans will be crucial in central defence against his former club while Youri Tielemans has a whole host of admirers in the central midfield role.
Harvey Barnes’s industry in midfield, combined with the flair of Kelechi Iheanacho and Jamie Vardy’s deadly finishing, make Leicester a threat in every game they play.
Manchester United will be hoping to avoid another week of drama as domestic football returns and the pressure grows on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The Red Devils could be without Harry Maguire and Raphael Varane for this one, so could be looking to Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly in central defensive positions.
Fred and Scott McTominay are the preferred choices in the middle of the pitch while Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes have a huge creative role to play for the Red Devils.
Cristiano Ronaldo is back at Old Trafford and he has been banging in the goals for club and country already this season.
