Leicester v Man Utd team news

Leicester: Jamie Vardy was hooked off early at Tottenham with a slight niggle that could be cause for concern for Brendan Rodgers.

Other than that, the squad look to have pulled up well from the victory in London and Rodgers will be expected to name a largely unchanged line-up for United’s visit.

Man Utd: Edinson Cavani and Anthony Martial are still struggling with injuries picked up earlier this month and could miss out on the Boxing Day clash.

It would be a surprise to see Ole Gunnar Solskjaer tinker with the line-up that absolutely clobbered Leeds.

Our prediction: Leicester v Man Utd

Leicester and Man Utd made it very clear that they are not to be trifled with after their performances last weekend.

However, the Boxing Day clash will prove to be a very stern test of their title credentials with both sides hoping to mount a charge on the league.

It’s definitely got goals in it.

Our prediction: Leicester 2-2 Man Utd
