Leicester vs Man Utd LIVE: Premier League team news and line-ups with Ronaldo and Casemiro on the bench

“Ronaldo is not leaving United,” says Ten Hag

Leicester City host Manchester United tonight as midweek Premier League action continues on transfer deadline day. Brendan Rodgers’ men need to revive their season after finishing bottom of the Premier League by just one point after losing three of their first four games.

They will miss the defensive skills of Wesley Fofana, who joined Chelsea for £70m, but the Foxes received a deadline day boost with the signing of Wout Faes for £15m from Reims. The 24-year-old defender will not feature tonight but could provide much-needed reassurance for Leicester’s ailing defense later in the season.

Tonight’s opponents also confirmed a signing of their own today as Antony completes his £85.4million move from Ajax to Old Trafford. Erik ten Hag will hope Antony’s arrival can help United’s recent resurgence after victories over Liverpool and Southampton, but the striker will play no part tonight. As such, the Red Devils are expected to remain largely with the same team that ensured those victories as they seek a return to prominence with a third win in the top flight.

Follow all the action at the King Power Stadium as Leicester take on Manchester United:


Team change between Leicester and Man Utd

Brendan Rodgers makes three changes from the Leicester side who lost to Chelsea last time out as Luke Thomas and Wilfred Ndidi step in to replace Timothy Castagne and Daniel Amartey.

James Maddison also returns because Dennis Praet falls on the bench. Youri Tielemans starts from the club despite rumors of a possible move.

Erik ten Hag again names an unchanged team. Cristiano Ronaldo and Casemiro are on the bench.


Leicester vs Man Utd lineups

Leicester XI: Ward, Thomas, Ndidi, Evans, Justin, Soumare, Maddison, Tielemans, Dewsbury-Hall, Barnes, Vardy

Man Utd XI: De Gea, Dalot, Varane, Martinez, Malacia, McTominay, Eriksen, Elanga, Fernandes, Sancho, Rashford


Cristiano Ronaldo’s Man Utd future set to make headlines on hectic transfer deadline day

Cristiano Ronaldo remains the subject of fevered speculation as the summer transfer window enters its final day.

Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has played down suggestions that the 37-year-old Portuguese skipper could leave the club for a second time after he was linked with Napoli and former club Sporting this summer.

The imminent arrival of Ajax frontman Antony in a £80.6million deal with a further £4.2million in add-ons has prompted suggestions that Ronaldo, who has started just one game so far this season, may be allowed to leave .

However, when asked about his future, Ten Hag said: “We need numbers there, we not only need quantity, but quality.”


A change of shape?

Manchester United are looking to win back-to-back Premier League away games for the first time since last September. If they win tonight, the Red Devils could also win three straight league games for the first time since December.


Ten Hag keeps United’s winning streak going

Manchester United are in the hunt for a third win in a row and Erik ten Hag is keen to keep the momentum going and insists he has to win every game.

“Of course it’s very clear that we have to win every game,” said the Red Devils boss,

“You go from game to game and of course we want to develop a process and keep improving this process. But you have to win your games, so we have to keep going.

“We want to compete with the best clubs and win every game, so you need a good squad.

“A squad that also has competition but also during the season you have injuries, suspensions and loss of form so you need substitutes to fill the role. You need quality and I think now we have a squad that has quality.”


Leicester are delighted, says Daka

Leicester City striker Patson Daka says the team are delighted and have put the terrible results from the start of the season behind them.

“It wasn’t the start we had hoped for or wished for,” the Zambian international told LCFC TV. “It was a time where we are getting better every day, evolving and getting closer to what we want to achieve. I guess sometimes life doesn’t go to plan, but how you react is more important.

“Every day is another chance for us to react better. It was a disappointing start but it’s over. We have to look ahead and get a better start to the season now.”


Early team news for Leicester v Man Utd

Leicester City could welcome back James Maddison, who missed Saturday’s defeat by Chelsea with a hamstring problem, but Ryan Bertrand and Ricardo Pereira remain absent for the long term.

Manchester United’s new signing Anthony was not registered in time to be available for tonight’s game and Anthony Martial is sidelined with an Achilles injury.

Victor Lindelof has returned to training but is unlikely to be risked although he could come on the bench.


Fighting foxes

Leicester haven’t won their first four games of a Premier League season for the first time since being relegated in 2003/04.

The Foxes have gone on to their longest five-game winless streak since the start of a Premier League season, most recently in 1994.


Manchester United sign Newcastle goalkeeper on loan

Manchester United have completed the one-season signing of Martin Dubravka from Newcastle United.

The 33-year-old goalkeeper comes on to cover for David de Gea after Dean Henderson went on loan to Nottingham Forest.

United have paid a £2million loan fee for the Czech Republic international and a £6million buy-in commitment should he start a certain number of Premier League games.

Dubravka is expected to be the sixth and final signing of Erik ten Hag’s summer makeover at Old Trafford.


Manchester United results

Man Utd’s season got off to a shocking start In their opening game, they lost 2-1 at home to Brighton before things got even worse against Brentford.

The Bees scored four goals in 20 minutes to delight the hearts of all United fans and begin the Erik ten Hag era with the worst possible start.

However, Ten Hag dropped Cristiano Ronaldo and Harry Maguire for the game against Liverpool and the Red Devils impressed with a dominant 2-1 win.

The manager stuck with centre-back pairing Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane for United’s game against Southampton and they were rewarded again with Bruno Fernandes scoring the only goal of the game.

That’s two wins in a row for Man Utd, can they make it three tonight against Leicester?
