Leicester vs Manchester United LIVE: Premier League latest score, goals and updates from fixture today



Solskjaer on Manchester Utd defensive crisis ahead of Leicester

Manchester United travel to Leicester as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side look to get back to winning ways in the Premier League.

A defeat by Aston Villa and a draw against Everton stalled United’s momentum before the international break, and Solskjaer has been hit with several absences since. Raphael Varane was injured on France duty and Edinson Cavani and Fred are unavailable following their late matches in South America. The return of Marcus Rashford is a boost, however, while Cristiano Ronaldo will aim to add to his three Premier League strikes so far after drawing blanks in United’s previous two matches in the competition. With fixtures against Atalanta, Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester City to come next, the pressure will be on United to start their tough run of matches with three points.

Leicester are seeking a win to spark their campaign following a slow start under Brendan Rodgers. The Foxes have challenged United for the top four in each of the past two seasons but find themselves in the bottom half of the table with eight points from their opening seven games. Rodgers has been linked with Newcastle this week but insists he is happy at the King Power. “This is a great opportunity starting tomorrow to get back to our level, get our focus back again and hopefully get one or two players back, and then we can progress as the season goes on,” he said.

56 mins: Chance! A Leicester clearance comes bouncing over the head of Iheanacho and drops for Matic. He smokes one on the half-volley from well outside the box but catches it sweetly. The shot continues to rise and just shoots over the top of the crossbar. That would have been another banger of a goal if it had gone in.

There isn’t much to talk about from the rest of the 3pm kick offs. Manchester City are leading against Burnley but the rest of the games remain nil-nil.
