Foxes unchanged for Old Trafford test

Brendan Rodgers names an unchanged side for the first time since August – and who can blame him.

The Foxes thumped four past Tottenham last time out so new arrivals Harry Souttar, Victor Kristiansen and Tete get the opportunity to continue.

James Maddison has revelled since returning from injury, and today wears the captain’s armband while Kelechi Iheanacho has the chance to cement his place as the club’s first choice striker.

Rodgers is able to name a strong bench too with the return of Youri Tielemans, Wilfried Ndidi and Jamie Vardy.

Leicester (4-2-3-1): 1 Ward; 27 Castagne, 15 Sostar, 3 Faes, 16 Kristiansen; 24 Mendy, 22 Dewsbury-Hall; 37 Tete, 10 Maddison, 7 Barnes’s 14 Iheanacho

Subs: 31 Iversen, 8 Tielemans, 9 Vardy, 18 Amartey, 20 Daka, 21 Pereira, 25 Ndidi, 26 Praet, 42 Soumare
