Leicester travel to Man Utd as the Foxes look to pick up where they left off before the international break.

Brendan Rodgers' men downed Brentford before signing off for two weeks, moving Leicester into the top half of the table.

However, priorities may lie elsewhere for the Foxes with a Europa Conference League quarter-final first leg with PSV on the horizon in midweek.

Here's how the Foxes could line up in the meantime.


1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Kasper Schmeichel (GK) - His injury time stop against Rennes in the Europa Conference League could prove one of the most pivotal in the context of the season.

James Justin (RB) - With Justin, Timothy Castagne and Ricardo Pereira back from injury, Leicester are beginning to have depth in the full back areas.

Wesley Fofana (CB) - His return from injury will go a long way to solving Rodgers' defensive headache.

Caglar Soyuncu (CB) - The subject of criticism earlier in the season, but he has impressed in recent weeks.

Timothy Castagne (LB) - Opened the scoring against Brentford with a screamer last time out.

2. Midfielders

Nampalys Mendy (CM) - An opportunity has opened up in midfield for the 29-year-old with Wilfried Ndidi likely to be missing until the end of the season.

Youri Tielemans (CM) - Seems unlikely that the Belgian will extend his contract with the Foxes, which could open up the possibility of a summer exit.

Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall (CM) - Going from strength to strength this season, typically reserving his best performances for the bigger games.

3. Forwards

James Maddison (RW) - Vastly improved for the Foxes in recent months, with the midfielder likely to be eyeing a place in the England squad for the World Cup.

Kelechi Iheanacho (ST) - The Nigerian has been tasked with providing the cutting edge in the absence of Jamie Vardy.

Harvey Barnes (LW) - Has been directly involved in seven Leicester goals since the turn of the year.
