Leicester City v Man United: Potentian Tougher Test For Van Gaal

Leicester City v Man United: Potentian Tougher Test For Van Gaal

Leicester City have shown strong home form this new Premier League season already with draws at the King Power Stadium against Everton and Arsenal. Despite their believed inferiority to bigger clubs, the Foxes have stormed out of the gates looking for an early boost in points for their survival campaign.

Matthew Upson remains a long term absentee while first choice goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel is a game time decision and his absence from goal could give a significant tilt the way of the visitors.

Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal looks to have only taken a few matches to realize his desire to play a 3-5-2 with the current contingent of players at the club was not going to work. Seeing them revert to a 4-3-1-2 against Queens Park Rangers last weekend proved the potential effectiveness of his new look attack.

However, Leicester away are a tougher test than QPR was at Old Trafford. Additionally the United injury list continues to grow with it up to seven first team regulars out in the form of Marouane Fellaini, Michael Carrick, Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Ashley Young, Jesse Lingard and James Wilson.

Leicester City XI: Hamer: Laet, Morgan, Moore, Konchesky; Mahrez, Cambiasso, Hammond, Schlupp; Ulloa, Nugent.

Manchester United XI: De Gea: Rafael, Evans, Blackett, Rojo; Herrera, Blind, Maria; Mata; Rooney, Persie.
