Maguire out - How Man Utd could line up against Leicester

The Manchester United captain was forced off against Aston Villa at the weekend due to an ankle injury and will miss the game versus the Foxes

Manchester United will be without captain Harry Maguire for this week's Premier League game against Leicester City.

Against Aston Villa on Sunday Man Utd won 3-1, but the victory was soured slightly at the news that Maguire good miss weeks of action after picking up an ankle injury.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed after the match that it could be as much as a month on the sidelines for Maguire.

That will mean Eric Bailly coming into the starting XI to partner Victor Lindelof in the centre of defence.

Man Utd are in the middle of a run of three games in five days, so Solskjaer will probably rotate things a bit, especially with the rescheduled game against Liverpool coming up on Thursday.

That could mean Luke Shaw dropping to the bench with Alex Telles coming in at left-back, though Aaron Wan-Bissaka could retain his place at right-back.

In midfield, Nemanja Matic could be given a rare start in place of Fred alongside Scott McTominay.

Donny van de Beek will likely be given a start, too, perhaps with Bruno Fernandes given a rest.

Daniel James and Anthony Martial remain injured, so Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood will probably retain their places, with Edinson Cavani starting up top and Paul Pogba dropping to the bench.
