Claudio Ranieri has taken the Premier League by a storm with the performances that his club has put forward so far this season. He sees his club sit at the top of the table with a 1 point gap over 2nd placed Manchester United, the club they will face next in the domestic League. Leicester City started the season superbly but many wrote them off to end in the 2nd half of the table at the end of the season.

But reaching the top of the Premier League after 13 games is not an easy feat and the manger will hope that his side can keep up the good work and open a 4 point gap at the top.

Manchester United on the other end had a forgettable mid-week game against PSV Eindhoven where they failed to take their chances and were held to a 0-0 draw. They were lucky to get away with all three points against Watford last week but will have their work cut out when they meet Ranieri’s side.

Leicester City Starting XI: Schmeichel; Simpson, Huth, Morgan (c), Fuchs; Mahrez, Kanté, Drinkwater, Albrighton; Okazaki, Vardy.

Leicester City Subs: De Laet, King, Schlupp, Ulloa, Dyer, Schwarzer, Inler.

Manchester United Starting XI: De Gea, Darmian, McNair, Smalling, Blind, Carrick, Schweinsteiger, Mata, Young, Rooney, Martial

Manchester United Subs: Romero, Borthwick-Jackson, Fellaini, Memphis, Pereira, Schneiderlin, Rashford
