Man Utd will look to keep their top four hopes alive when they entertain Leicester at Old Trafford in the Premier League.

Ralf Rangnick's men were dumped out of the Champions League at home to Atletico Madrid when they were last in action before the international break, while they remain four points adrift of Arsenal in the final Champions League position.

Leicester, meanwhile, have enjoyed an upturn in form despite a turbulent campaign, with their 2-1 win over Brentford lifting them up to 10th in the table with games to spare on the teams around them.

Man Utd team news

Raphael Varane allayed fears of another injury setback for United after declaring himself fit following a foot injury which forced him off France's friendly against the Ivory Coast on international duty.

Harry Maguire also started for England in midweek, while Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes teamed up to send Portugal to the World Cup at North Macedonia's expense.

However, Edinson Cavani picked up an injury while on Uruguay duty and is a doubt.


Leicester team news

Brendan Rodgers would have welcomed the international hiatus with Leicester's injury list showing few signs of easing to any significant extent.

Jamie Vardy is inching closer to a return from a hamstring issue for the Foxes, although Wilfried Ndidi has been ruled out for the remainder of the season after sustaining a knee injury.

However, Marc Albrighton could return for Leicester this weekend, while Ademola Lookman will return after missing the win over Brentford through illness.


Man Utd vs Leicester score prediction

More dropped points for United would likely signal the end for their push for Champions League football this season.

The Red Devils appear a more cohesive pressing unit under Ralf Rangnick, but they struggle to sustain their intensity for 90 minutes and often allow their opponents a route back into matches.

Nevertheless, they should have too much for a Leicester side who, despite showing improvements in recent weeks, still look short of the level they displayed over the previous two seasons.

Prediction: Man Utd 2-1 Leicester
