Manchester United play host to Leicester City in a Premier League fixture at Old Trafford on Sunday. The hosts are heading into the match on the back of a pulsating 2-2 draw away to Barcelona in the first leg of their Europa League playoff time in the mid-week. The Foxes, meanwhile, secured an impressive 4-1 League-win over Tottenham Hotspur last Sunday. As of now, Brendan Rodgers’s side are occupying the 14th spot in the English top tier standings, having collected 24 points from 22 games. United, on the other hand, have played an extra game, and are sitting at the third position, with 46 points to their name, eight adrift of leaders Arsenal.

Manchester United have been in stunning form since returning from the World Cup break, having lost just once in their last 16 outings across all competitions. Last time out, Erik Ten Hag’s side produced a brilliant performance at Camp Nou to earn a draw against the La Liga leaders. Marcus Rashford was United’s best player in Catalonia as the Englishman scored the opening goal, before forcing an own goal by Jules Kounde. It was the 25-year-old’s 14th goal in his last 16 games in all competitions. Prior to that, the Red Devils secured a 2-0 League-win away to Leeds United, thanks to goals from Rashford and Alejandro Garnacho. It was their 14th top flight victory of the season. 

Leicester, also have been in pretty good form of late, having won back-to-back league-games against Aston Villa (4-2) and Spurs . Last time out, the Foxes came from behind to thrash Spurs at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Rodrigo Bentancur put Tottenham ahead inside the opening 14 minutes before Nampalys Mendy, James Maddison, Kelechi Iheanacho and Harvey Barnes found the back of the net for the Foxes in North London. It was their seven league-win of the season but still the Foxes are just four points clear of the relegation zone.
