Things are getting pretty dire. After Hull City pulled off a shock win over Liverpool yesterday, the bottom of the table is really bunching up. Leicester City now find themselves just one point above the drop zone and they’re in desperate need of something today.
Unfortunately, they have to do so against Manchester United, who currently sit in 6th after a 15 match unbeaten run in the league. They’re not unbeatable, of course, but we will need to be on a completely different level to all of our recent performances. Try not to think about our last game against them.

Musa and Shinji in, Gray and Albrighton out. That’s certainly an attacking look. 4-4-2, 4-2-3-1? It’s all he same, really.
Man Utd: De Gea; Valencia, Bailly, Smalling, Rojo; Herrera, Pogba; Mata, Mkhitaryan, Rashford; Ibrahimovic
As always, enjoy the game and please leave your comments below.
