A late run in the League is all that can take United back into the top tier of European football next season after Atletico Madrid knocked them out of the Champions League before the international break.
Currently, it seems unlikely Ralf Rangnick’s side will be able to overcome Arsenal’s challenge on that front, although their win over Tottenham did at least keep them within touching distance.
Leicester, meanwhile, appear to have come through their own difficult period and have won three of their last five outings.
Here’s everything you need to know about the game.

Manchester United vs Leicester City team news
United have confirmed Edinson Cavani suffered an injury while away on international duty and will duly be assessed. At this stage, it seems unlikely the veteran striker will be fit enough to feature.
Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw both overcame knocks during the break to star for France and England respectively, while there is little in the way of fresh injury concerns.
For Leicester, Ademola Lookman, Jonny Evans and Wesley Fofana should all be in contention.
Manchester United vs Leicester prediction
While United did manage to beat Spurs, they weren’t fully convincing. Leicester, meanwhile, are still prone to the odd bout of inconsistency.
