Man United vs Leicester: Premier League preview

A win at Aston Villa was the start of a run of three games in five days for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer & Co. culminating with the rescheduled visit of Liverpool on Thursday.

Leicester went down 4-2 at home to Newcastle but West Ham’s own defeat to Everton have given them some much-needed breathing space in their bid to finish fourth or higher.

Date, time and venue

Manchester United vs Leicester is scheduled for a 6pm BST kick-off on Tuesday, May 11, 2021.

The match will be held behind closed doors at Old Trafford.

Team news

Harry Maguire is expected to miss the game for Manchester United after being forced off against Aston Villa with a suspected ankle injury in one of what could be a few changes from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

This is the second game of three in five days for United, so the likes of Alex Telles and Donny van de Beek could come in for needed minutes.

Leicester City may also be tempted to make changes with the FA Cup final to come at the weekend. James Maddison and Ricardo Pereira continue to be monitored, meaning Timothy Castagne and Ayoze Perez may come in.

Prediction: Man United 1-1 Leicester

Likely plenty of changes and, perhaps, more important games to come for both so we may not be treated to the second-vs-fourth battle this suggests on paper.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer undeniably has his squad playing for him so, despite rotation and fatigue, will be a good match for Brendan Rodgers’ side aiming to make amends for Friday’s loss to Newcastle.
