The international break hasn't been a help to United as they have load of injuries for tomorrows game with Martial,Pogba,Shaw out for certain and Wan Bissaka,Lingard doubtful.  Will Ole go with the likes of Young,Mata,Matic or opt for youth? i think if the former all start i would expect Leicester to grab at least a draw. They have a midfield trio in Ndidi,Tielemans,Maddison that would cause the top two in City,Liverpool problems never mind a slow Mata and Matic and their striker in good form Vardy needs no introduction.

It'll be another tough afternoon. Leicester will run them ragged.

Im not so sure about that, if Leicester sat back and tried to hit united on the break they could win, but Leicester tend to be very open which suits United. Its also a big test for Leicester as most people reckon it will be them who break into the top 6 (probably at uniteds expense) so its a big game in that regards. I agree that if United play Mata and Matic they are in big trouble as both are far too slow.

Someone likes fishing. United are still contenders technically speaking but there is no doubt they are a long way off Liverpool and City (as is everyone else) and they will struggle to make the top 4 and could conceivably not even make top 6 as the squad is continues to be rebuilt and deadwood cleared out.

I wont mind too much that Liverpool fans continue to slag off united's current malaise once their own side fail once again to win the premier league, the one prize they so desperately want.

I think they'll do it this season. They've been on an upward trajectory since Klopp came.

Christ they were poor though. Leicester needlessly gave away a penalty when there was no danger. Only for that, United wouldn’t have scored had they played ‘til Christmas.

That was a much needed win for United and the most impressive thing was keeping a clean sheet and restricting a decent side like Leicester to few clear cut chances.

Maguire,Wan Bissaka and Lindelof apart from that one error 1st half that almost led to a goal defended well. McTominay is improving with the more games he plays was probably United's best player today. Could have scored 3 set piece goals this afternoon but apart from the James,Mata chances it was struggle to create much from open play.  Fred looked lively when he came on, surely a better option than Matic  for the games ahead?

Another game and another penalty for Utd, this time scored.

If the earlier penalties in the season were dispatched accordingly, Utd would be sitting clear 2nd in table.

This yew tree lad is on the Down gaa chat talking  nonsense also. Best to not take his contribution seriously.  You should see the idiotic post he made on intermediate and junior championships.
