Manchester United travel to Leicester City on Saturday looking to close the gap on rivals Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table.

Leicester City vs Manchester United: Premier League prediction, TV, live streaming, start time, team news, line-ups


Manchester United head to Leicester City with both sides looking for a reversal of fortunes after their respective EFL Cup disappointments.

United were dumped out of the competition on Wednesday night by Championship side Bristol City, who shocked the holders with a last-gasp 2-1 win.

Leicester's recent upturn in form was halted by a crushing 3-0 Premier League home defeat against Crystal Palace last weekend, with the Foxes going on to lose an EFL Cup penalty shootout at home to Man City.

United sit second but still 11 points behind pace-setters Manchester City, and must realistically win nearly every remaining game - starting at the King Power - to stand any chance of catching Pep Guardiola's men.
