WHAT'S OUR RECORD AGAINST LEICESTER LIKE?
There have been 128 previous competitive meetings between the clubs, with United holding the upper hand thanks to their 66 wins. Leicester have managed 33, while there have been 29 draws. The Reds have hosted Leicester on 50 occasions and there have been 26 clashes in the Premier League era to date. Of those 26 games, United have won 17, drawn seven and lost just two. Last term, the Reds had the honour of opening the Premier League season with a Friday night clash against the Foxes at Old Trafford, winning 2-1 thanks to Paul Pogba's early penalty and Luke Shaw's first career goal. The reverse fixture at the King Power Stadium saw Marcus Rashford score the only goal in the ninth minute, earning us a 1-0 win in early February.
HOW DID LEICESTER GET ON LAST SEASON?
The 2018/19 campaign was a largely inconsistent one for the Foxes, who eventually secured ninth place ahead of West Ham United thanks to their superior goal difference. An indifferent start resulted in the sacking of manager Claude Puel in February, before former Liverpool and Swansea boss Brendan Rodgers left Scottish champions Celtic to take over the reins. After losing his first match in charge at his former club Watford, Rodgers inspired a revival which saw the Midlands outfit win their next four league games, and they ended the campaign strongly, beating Arsenal 3-0, running Manchester City close at the Etihad Stadium in a 1-0 defeat, then finishing with a goalless draw at home to UEFA Europa League winners Chelsea. Leicester also reached the Carabao Cup quarter-finals, going out on penalties to Pep Guardiola's City after a 1-1 draw at home, but they were knocked out of the Emirates FA Cup at the first hurdle following a disappointing 2-1 defeat at League Two side Newport County in the third round. However, there were plenty of positives to take from the season – not least the form of Ricardo Pereira and James Maddison, who claimed both of the main awards at the club's end-of-season ceremony following impressive debut campaigns. They will be keen to make further progress in 2019/20, in what will be Rodgers's first full season at the helm.
