Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Man Utd team vs Leicester predicted if eight stars miss game
Since then though, United have failed to win a single game – dropping points against three weaker opponents.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer now has the added worry of injuries, with eight players potentially ruled out this weekend.
So how could United line-up on Saturday if this group all fail to pass late fitness tests?
Firstly, three players are definitely out of contention for the Leicester clash, in the form of Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Luke Shaw and Eric Bailly.
Shaw continues to recover from a thigh injury, while the other pair remain sidelined with knee problems.
Diogo Dalot is another doubt as he battles to return from a groin injury.
More hope is held when it comes to French duo Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba, though.
The duo are nursing thigh and ankle problems respectively but are both in contention to feature this weekend.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka pulled out of England duty last week following a back injury.
And Jesse Lingard soon followed his team-mate after picking up an illness.
It is unlikely that all eight stars will miss the encounter against Brendan Rodgers’ men.
But these problems leave Solskjaer with a headache ahead of Saturday’s 3pm kick-off.
David de Gea will start in between the sticks once again.
In defence, Victor Lindelof may have to be deployed as a makeshift right-back should Wan-Bissaka fail to recover in time.
Harry Maguire and Phil Jones would then be used at the heart of the defence, with Ashley Young replacing Shaw at left-back.
In the midfielder, Scott McTominay and Nemanja Matic could attempt to fill the role left vacant by Pogba.
Further up the pitch, in-form Daniel James is expected to be used from the start once more.
Andreas Pereira started down the right against Southampton and may be used again.
Juan Mata will then be used in the No 10 role. Marcus Rashford is set to lead the line once again for Solskjaer‘s side.
Potential Man Utd starting XI: De Gea, Lindelof, Maguire, Jones, Young; Matic, McTominay; James, Mata, Pereira; Rashford
