Anthony Martial to start? – Predicted Man United XI to face Leicester as top-4 race picks up the pace

Anthony Martial Manchester United

Manchester United saw their 100% winning record under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer come to an end against Burnley.

The Red Devils were trailing 2-0 before some last-minute heroics from Victor Lindelof brought home a point. Paul Pogba scored a penalty in the 87th minute to bring us back into the game, and the Frenchman is carrying a knock.

The midfielder should still be fit to face Leicester City at the King Power Stadium. The Foxes won’t be an easy team to face given that they drew with Liverpool in the previous game. Solskjaer should stick with his winning formula.

Predicted Manchester United XI

Formation: 4-3-3

Manager: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

David de Gea (GK)

The Spaniard has to be at his best to keep out a sprightly Leicester City team from scoring.

Ashley Young (RB)

Young has done a great job for United as the right-back and should keep his place in the team.

Phil Jones Manchester United

Phil Jones (CB)

The Englishman is getting an extended run in the starting XI and should not be replaced by Chris Smalling for now.

Victor Lindelof (CB)

The Swede scored an important goal in our chase for the top four, and his defence has improved as the season has progressed.

Luke Shaw (LB)

Shaw is another player who has done well under Solskjaer and we should stick with the left-back on Sunday.

Nemanja Matic (CM)

Matic started our last game and he should keep his place in the team for the trip to Leicester.

Ander Herrera

Ander Herrera (CM)

It was a bit of a surprise seeing Herrera not start the previous game, but the Spaniard should return to the side on Sunday.

Paul Pogba (CM)

There are some concerns about Paul Pogba not being 100% fit, but he should start the game unless it is a serious issue.

Jesse Lingard (RW)

Lingard was another star who didn’t start against Burnley, but the attacker should return to the XI against the Foxes.

Marcus Rashford of Manchester United

Marcus Rashford (ST)

Rashford should get the nod to start ahead of Romelu Lukaku for this game. The Englishman has looked great under the new manager and would want to score on Sunday.
