Leicester: After a rare summer in which their key players were not picked by wealthier clubs, the Vultures appear to be circling King Power once again. However, on this occasion, it is their manager who is targeted by the brand new Newcastle United, who would covet the Northern Irishman as the inevitable successor to Steve Bruce. Indications coming from Leicester are that they expect their manager to stay put, although the eager looks from St. James’ Park will certainly add to the intrigue as the Foxes seek to get back to winning ways .
Rodgers is hoping to welcome Jonny Evans back for a visit to his former club. With the center-back to the side, Leicester look like a much stronger defensive unit which they’ll need when they face Cristiano Ronaldo and company.
Manchester United : With Harry Maguire already sidelined with a calf problem, seeing Raphael Varane limp from France’s UEFA Nations League final victory over Spain has been a blow to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who is expected to be deprived of both. players for the trip to the East Midlands. Liners Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly have rarely played together and when they did, the Red Devils are averaging 1.33 points per game in the Champions League and Premier League.
United have been particularly wary in setting a specific timeline for the recovery of either first-choice center-back, although Maguire is hoping for an early return. “It’s getting there,” said the 28-year-old. “I still haven’t trained with the team, but I’m improving, I’m progressing as I should.”
A weakened Manchester United backline is unlikely to keep their clean sheet clean, although Leicester’s own struggles at the back mean it promises to be a game with plenty of goals. TO TAKE: Leicester 2, Manchester United 2
