The Red Devils returned to winning ways on Sunday with a 3-1 comeback triumph at Aston Villa. It was the 10th occasion this term that they had come from behind to win a league game, and the first team to reach 100 comeback wins in Premier League history.

With the victory, they are assured of a Champions League spot for next season, but will be hoping to finish the campaign on a high note before the Europa League final.

They still have an outside chance of winning the league title, but that depends on Manchester City picking up just one point from the remaining three matches.

They are scheduled to host the Foxes tomorrow, and could dampen their top-four prospects. United were eliminated by the Foxes in the FA Cup quarter-final, and will be aiming to avenge the result.

Key Stats:

United have an excellent league record against the Foxes, and are unbeaten in 13 league games.

Their previous league defeat came during the 2014/15 campaign. The Foxes came from behind to register a 5-3 win at the King Power Stadium.

The visitors have not beaten United at Old Trafford in any competition since 1998.

Kelechi Iheanacho has been in superb form for the Foxes. He has netted 10 goals alongside two assists from his last 10 league appearances.

Edinson Cavani has been the pick of the players for United. The Uruguayan has registered five goals from his last three outings in all competitions, and has reportedly signed a contract extension as well.

Team News:

Phil Jones (fitness) and Anthony Martial (knee injury) remain on the sidelines for United while Daniel James is doubtful with a knock. Club captain Harry Maguire could also miss out after sustaining an ankle injury against Villa.

James Justin and Harvey Barnes are out of contention with season-ending injuries. Jonny Evans picked up an injury in the warm-up to the shock 4-2 defeat to Newcastle United. He appears set to miss out on a reunion with his former club.

Predicted Line-ups:

Solskjaer has confirmed that he will make numerous changes for the clash with the fixture being played just over 48 hours after the previous encounter. There could be as many as nine changes for the clash.

Manchester United (4-2-3-1): David de Gea; Brandon Williams, Axel Tuanzebe, Eric Bailly, Alex Telles; Scott McTominay, Nemanja Matic; Mason Greenwood, Juan Mata, Donny van de Beek; Edinson Cavani

Leicester City (3-4-1-2): Kasper Schmeichel; Timothy Castagne, Wesley Fofana, Caglar Soyuncu; Ricardo Pereira, Youri Tielemans, Wilfred Ndidi, Marc Albrighton; James Maddison; Jamie Vardy, Kelechi Iheanacho

Predicted Score:

United have been in superb form over the past few months, but wholesale changes on Tuesday should offer the Foxes with the chance to get something from the game. The Midlands outfit could be without Evans, which makes them vulnerable at the back.
