    Leicester City vs Manchester United: Team news & key stats

    Leicester midfielder Wilfried Ndidi injured his hamstring earlier in October. And as Wesley Fofana continues to face a long-term absence, right-back James Justin is also missing the tie.

    United’s centre-back pairing of Harry Maguire and Raphael Varane are ruled out injured, with the latter picking up his injury during the Nations Cup.

    Key Stats:

    • Leicester won their last league meeting with Manchester United 2-1 in May – they’ve not won consecutive league games against the Red Devils since September 1973.
       
    • Manchester United have lost just one of their 15 Premier League away games against Leicester (W9 D5), going down 5-3 in September 2014 under Louis van Gaal. However, they did lose 3-1 at the King Power Stadium in the FA Cup last season.
       
    • Leicester striker Jamie Vardy has scored in each of his last three Premier League appearances – the only player older than Vardy will be on the day of this game (34y 278d) in Premier League history to score in four consecutive appearances is Gary McAllister in May 2001 for Liverpool (36y 127d).
       
    • Cristiano Ronaldo’s only previous appearance against Leicester in his career was in a 1-0 win for Man Utd at Old Trafford in April 2004 (Gary Neville scoring the winner). The Foxes would be the 120th different opponent Ronaldo has scored against in his club career if he finds the net here.
