At the most wonderful time of the year, Christmas, I am sure I am not alone in saying that the Boxing Day fixture programme is one of my favourite of the year.
At a time when COVID-19 restrictions are affecting us all and or normal way of life is different to how we would normally plan it, football, although being played behind-closed-doors, does provide some respite.
This lunchtime, Manchester United have a difficult looking away fixture against Leicester.
However, for the winner of what should be an exhilarating game at the King Power Stadium, is the opportunity to claim second place in the Premier League table although with games involving the other teams to follow, it could be on a temporary basis.
Ole Gunnar Solksjaer, after a poor start to the season, has turned the sides fortunes around and the Manchester United faithful will be hoping that, today, the wonderful away form displayed this season, can be continued.
With the kick-off fast approaching, we are now able to bring you the team-sheets as selected by Ole Gunnar Solksjaer and Brendan Rodgers.
Starting with our hosts, Leicester City:
