Team News:

Leicester City
Leicester will again be without the services of Ricardo Pereira through injury, while the match is also expected to come too soon for central defender Caglar Soyuncu.

Jamie Vardy is fit, though, with the experienced striker overcoming the groin issue that he picked up during the win over Tottenham. As a result, Vardy should lead the line with support from James Maddison and Ashley Barnes in the forward areas.

Rodgers could select a back three with Christian Fuchs coming into the side, but there are unlikely to be any changes in midfield with Youri Tielemans again set to line up alongside Wilfred Ndidi.
Leicester City possible starting lineup:
Schmeichel; Fofana, Evans, Fuchs; Albrighton, Ndidi, Tielemans, Justin; Barnes, Vardy, Maddison

Manchester United
As for United, Scott McTominay and Aaron Wan-Bissaka both missed out against Everton through injury, but the pair could come back into the starting XI on Saturday afternoon.

There will be changes from the side that triumphed in the EFL Cup, with Victor Lindelof, Fred, Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Luke Shaw and David de Gea all expected to return.

Daniel James impressed against Leeds last weekend, but Mason Greenwood could be given the nod on the right, while Edinson Cavani is likely to drop to the bench despite the Uruguay international scoring a brilliant goal at Goodison Park during the week.

Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo, though, are still unavailable for selection.
Manchester United possible starting lineup:
De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; McTominay, Fred; Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford; Martial
Manchester United Premier League form: WWWDWW

Prediction: Leicester City 2-2 Manchester United
