Leicester will provide stern opposition for Manchester United in the last Premier League match before Christmas. Claude Puel’s side have been in fantastic form overall since he arrived, replacing Craig Shakespeare at the helm. They had only lost one league game when Crystal Palace came to the King Power Stadium last week, and that was a battling defeat against the record-breaking leaders Manchester City, whom they also played in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday. That is why it was such a shock to see Roy Hodgson’s men win with such ease.

It has been a rough few weeks since the Manchester Derby defeat for Jose Mourinho’s men, but they are still standing tall and attempting to chase City down. As it stands, they are 11 points behind, but that gap could be a staggering 14 points by kick off in this one. Pep Guardiola’s men host Bournemouth earlier in the day on Saturday and will fully expect to take the points at the Etihad Stadium against a leaky Cherries defence.

Form 

As mentioned above, it was a real shock that Palace were able to win the game in the manner they did, 3-0, on Saturday. Leicester had looked both more solid at the back and potent up front; Riyad Mahrez has been in fine form, netting in his previous two games but he was very much off the boil. He failed to link up with Jamie Vardy effectively, and the England man will want to prove a point against the team he broke the record for consecutive goals in the Premier League against two years ago.

Thankfully, for the Red Devils, Paul Pogba returns to the side after a ban and he is the man who makes them tick. The French midfielder adds physicality and creativity when he plays and the entire team visibly responds with quicker passing and more direct running around him. That showed when he did play in the win at Arsenal, but also when he didn’t against City, Bournemouth and West Brom. It will certainly be a good battle between him and another returning player, for Leicester, Wilfred Ndidi. Both play vital roles for their respective teams and will be key to determining who comes out on top in this one.

Team News

As mentioned above, Ndidi returns for Leicester and Pogba does for United. Neither team will have any other concerns ahead of the match, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan still on the fringes of Jose Mourinho’s thinking with reports suggesting he doesn’t work hard enough.

Marc Albrighton and Damarai Gray will most likely flank Vardy with Mahrez in behind, but Islam Slimani and Kelechi Iheanacho will be pushing for starts up front. Marouane Fellaini continues to be absent for the visitors, too, meaning Ander Herrera will once again feature in the middle of midfield. Luke Shaw has been impressing at fullback.
