Manchester United are looking to make it 3 wins in as many English Premier League games when they take on Leicester City on Thursday.

United are coming off a slim 1-0 victory against Southampton that propelled them to 11th place with 6 points.

Leicester on the other hand suffered a third straight league defeat against Chelsea over the weekend.

The Foxes have not won a single game yet and with only a point to their name, they are at the bottom of the table.

Though, Leicester will find some reprieve in the fact that they have not lost to Man United in the league for over two years.

They head into this fixture on a five-game unbeaten streak against United, who last defeated Thursday’s hosts in July 2020.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s absence from the starting line-up has been a talking point amid speculation that the Portuguese star could be leaving Old Trafford.
