By on August 26, 2017 - 83 views

Manchester United are looking to maintain their 100% winning start to the season when they host Leicester City this evening.

The Red Devils have looked convincing in 4-0 wins over both West Ham and Swansea to start the season.

Visitors Leicester City were beaten 4-3 at Arsenal on opening night before a comfortable 2-0 win at home to Brighton & Hove Albion last weekend.

The two teams are confirmed as:

Manchester United

David de Gea; Antonio Valencia, Phil Jones, Eric Bailly, Daley Blind; Nemanja Matić, Paul Pogba; Juan Mata, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Anthony Martial; Romelu Lukaku

Substitutes: Sergio Romero, Matteo Darmian, Chris Smalling, Ander Herrera, Marouane Fellaini, Jesse Lingard, Marcus Rashford

José Mourinho’s sole change from the side that started both the West Ham and Swansea games sees Anthony Martial start down the left in place of Marcus Rashford who drops to the bench.

David de Gea has only had two saves to make this season but could be in for a busier afternoon as the visitors come out in a 4-4-2 formation having scored five goals in their opening two games this season.

Leicester City

Kasper Schmeichel; Danny Simpson, Wes Morgan, Harry Maguire, Christian Fuchs; Riyad Mahrez, Wilfried Ndidi, Matty James, Marc Albrighton; Shinji Okazaki, Jamie Vardy

Substitutes: Ben Hamer, Ben Chilwell, Daniel Amartey, Andy King, Demarai Gray, Kelechi Iheanacho, Islam Slimani

No surprises in the starting lineup for Craig Shakespeare’s side after both Wes Morgan and Harry Maguire have shaken off knocks to start today.  The visitors lineup in a 4-4-2 formation as usual with former-Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho among the substitutes.
