Manchester United

Last updated: Mon 16 September 2019 14:43
In Brief

Results and displays remain poor. Bailly, Dalot, Shaw and Fosu-Mensah long-term absentees. Pogba and Martial almost certainly out too. Wan-Bissaka and Lingard doubtful.

Looking Back

United’s only win so far in season-opener and as expected displays hardly improved on last season.

Defensively remain shaky with Maguire far from worthy of his price-tag and De Gea still making mistakes on goal. Much more serious issues at other end of pitch though where unavailability of typical centre forward hurting team.

Looking Ahead

Coach Solskjaer saw all of Wan-Bissaka, Pogba and Lingard sustaining knocks while on international duty and at least Pogba 'very unlikely' to play. Martial also major doubt, while still missing 4 sidelined defenders.

James in hot form, but Rashford very ineffective when asked to play as centre forward.

Points of Interest

Easily dominate this fixture in recent years – 6 wins, 1 draw and 0 defeats in last 7 matches vs. Leicester!

Manager Comments

”Pogba won't be fit, no, unless he's had a miraculous recovery overnight from yesterday to today."

Leicester City

Last updated: Mon 16 September 2019 14:43
In Brief

Enjoying unbeaten start to season. James sidelined. Morgan doubtful.

Looking Back

Leicester with 2 wins and 2 draws in 4 rounds gone, plus penalty shootout win in League Cup vs. Newcastle.

Cashing in on Maguire proved excellent idea for Foxes, with his replacement in defence Soyuncu currently rated most effective centre-back in entire Premier League based on 6 different statistics.

Looking Ahead

Coach Rodgers has no reason to change starting XI, which would mean Albrighton preferred ahead of Perez.

Veteran Morgan doubtful with back pain, but only long-term absentee fringe midfielder Matty James.

Points of Interest

Vardy flourishing under Rodgers – in 14 Premier Leagues games Rodgers was in charge of Foxes Vardy was involved in 14 goals (12 goals and 2 assists)!
