The Red Devils will have had plenty of time on the training ground this week to work on tactics and team bonding due to the absence of European football.

The early signs are promising though as an Angel di Maria inspired United won their first match of the season last Sunday and boss Louis Van Gaal will be keen to build some momentum with a second successive win.

Leicester for their part also secured their first win of the season with a hard fought 1-0 success away to Stoke. The club are unbeaten at home, drawing with both Everton and Arsenal with their only defeat coming at the hands of leaders Chelsea.

Team News:

Leicester are unable to call upon the services of on-loan midfielder Nick Powell.

The United star can’t play on Sunday due to the terms of his agreement.

Also out is defender Zoumana Bakayogo while goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel faces the side where his father made his name. Esteban Cambiasso could make his first start after an appearance form the bench last weekend.

United meanwhile still have a number of players on the sidelines. The club are without Marouane Fellaini and Phil Jones, both of whom are still a between three weeks and a month away from a return to action.

They join a lengthy injury list that also includes Chris Smalling, Michael Carrick, Ashley Young and Jesse Lingard.

Van Gaal also has a decision to make over Radamel Falco. The Dutch boss started with his recent signing on the bench against QPR and the signs are the Colombian is likely to once again have to wait for a first start as he is eased into life in the Premier League.

The last time United played at the King Power stadium they won 4-1 thanks to a hat-trick from Ruud Van Nistelrooy. The Red Devils have their last 10 meetings with the Foxes.

The last time they dropped points in this fixture was in August 1998 when they drew 2-2 while their last defeat was in the league cup in 1996 when Leicester won 2-0. Manager Nigel Pearson has unhappy memories of the last time he took control of a side against United.

On that occasion he oversaw a 6-0 defeat whilst in temporary charge of Newcastle although given the commitment and organisation he has instilled in last season’s championship winners a repeat result is unlikely.
