After the shock exit at the hands of Bristol City in the EFL Cup quarter-final, on Wednesday night, Manchester United will be looking to get back to winning ways when they visit Leicester City this Saturday.

Ahead of the fixture we`ve assembled some early team-news.

Starting with our hosts Leicester City:

Like ourselves, Leicester City were knocked out of the EFL Cup in midweek, when they were beaten on penalties by our neighbours, Manchester City.

Claude Puel rested several of his first team that night, as is the trend in the EFL Cup, for this fixture the big guns, including Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez are set to return.

However, two of his recognised first-team squad are unavailable with both Robert Huth and Matty James back in training but not yet ready to start a match.

Continuing with Manchester United:

Jose Mourinho is, where possible, set to recall those players he rotated for the aforementioned defeat at the hands of Bristol City

However, Manchester United will be without the services of the following quartet of players – Antonio Valencia, Marouane Fellaini, Michael Carrick and Eric Bailly.

Paul Pogba is available for selection for his first Premier League game since being sent-off in the victory away to Arsenal
