Leicester City vs Man Utd: Live stream, TV channel, predicted line-up and how to watch midweek Premier League clash on BT Sport

Everything you need to know about Leicester City vs Man Utd as Brendan Rodgers' Foxes play host to Erik ten Hag's side.

Published: 29 August 2022 - 12.35pm

Manchester United's aggressive and direct display against Liverpool is the sort of performance that Red Devils fans routinely came to expect of Sir Alex Ferguson's formidable sides at Old Trafford. 

However, Erik ten Hag's men still find themselves languishing in the bottom half and need to replicate that level at the King Power against a Leicester side mired in the relegation zone and facing a fight to hold on to two of their most important players in Wesley Fofana and Youri Tielemans. 

This match is the last of a 10-game midweek Premier League bonanza on BT Sport, leading directly into a special edition of Premier League Tonight on transfer deadline night.

Leicester vs Man Utd match preview

The struggle to keep Fofana and Tielemans has been well documented, with the former not in the right frame of mind to play, according to Brendan Rodgers, while the latter was consigned to a spot on the bench. 

On the pitch, their influence is clearly a miss and the defensive disorganisation that preceded both Che Adams' goals in Southampton's comeback win could well have been avoided had Fofana been picked. 

After the calamitous loss to Brentford, the home fans needed to see a reaction. They duly got that, with Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford - two players under scrutiny for poor performances - producing ice-cool finishes, while Lisandro Martinez answered his critics (for the time being at least) with an accomplished display alongside Raphael Varane, as Harry Maguire and Cristiano Ronaldo watching on from the bench. 

Despite the positive result, United now face somewhat of a bogey team, having not beaten Leicester in their last five outings and lost three of their last four against the Foxes in all competitions.
