It’s been a pretty good week for Leicester City. We’ve had three points in the league and a win in the league cup, won some international call ups and sold none of our star players.
Unfortunately, it’s been a pretty great two weeks for our opponents Manchester United. They’ve blown by their opposition this year with two 4-0 wins and are fully rested, having avoided a midweek fixture with a bye into the 3rd round of the cup.

Leicester City Team News:
While Vicente Iborra remains out, Danny Drinkwater, Robert Huth and Kelechi Iheanacho are all back in training, though still may not feature. Harry Maguire and Wes Morgan have both missed time after injuries picked up against Sheffield United and Brighton respectively, but Shakespeare expects both to be fit. If either is unavailable, Christian Fuchs would be the primary replacement.
Manchester United Team News:
Marcus Rojo will be a long term absentee for United, but they have an otherwise healthy squad, and it would be very unlikely to see Mourinho change a team that has started the season so well.
Leicester City: No changes again for the Foxes
