Premier League Returns With Old Trafford Fixture a Highlight
Football leagues around the globe will resume this weekend following the end of the international break. The Premier League is not left out and it is Manchester United hosting Leicester City at Old Trafford that can be said to be one of the giant fixtures of the weekend.
Leicester City won the first leg at the King Power Stadium 4-2 and with United’s dismal form of recent weeks,the Foxes will be hoping to see a glimmer of a chance to do the double over the Red Devils.
Star forward Marcus Rashford missed international duties for England and it is possible he will get a start on Saturday evening. The Foxes are without colossal midfield maestro Wilfred Ndidi who sustained a median cruciate ligament injury in his knee and he has been ruled out till the end of the season by manager Brendan Rodgers. With Nampalys Mendy getting his form back in recent weeks for club and country,the Senegalese could be in line for a start. Hamza Choudhury will also be an option for the absent Ndidi.
On the other hand,the return of Wesley Fofana is a much needed boost for Leicester who have missed the Frenchman for over a year through a nasty injury. Manchester United have no fresh injuries to report and all their internationals have returned to club training. It proves to be a feisty game,with United hoping to bridge the gap between them and Arsenal while Leicester will be hoping to secure European places at the end of the season.
