Manchester United team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Leicester City

Sports Mole rounds up Manchester United's injury and suspension news ahead of Saturday's Premier League clash with Leicester City.

Manchester United will be looking to make it four victories in a row in all competitions when they travel to Leicester City in the Premier League on Boxing Day.

The Red Devils booked their spot in the semi-finals of the EFL Cup on Wednesday night courtesy of a 2-0 victory over Everton at Goodison Park.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have won their last two in the league, meanwhile, and are unbeaten in England's top flight since the start of November - a run that has seen them rise into third spot in the table.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up United's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the clash with Leicester, who are currently second in the division.
