Jose Mourinho’s lately unimpressive Manchester United travel to King Power Stadium on Sunday to take on last season’s champions (seriously, that happened - it wasn’t a collective fever dream). Claudio Ranieri’s Leicester City have fallen desperately far from the giddy heights of last year’s title win, and find themselves just a solitary point above the relegation zone.
There are a litany of important questions to which we hope to learn the answers against Leicester. Will Anthony Martial be brought back in from the cold? Which of the totally-unfit-for-duty left-back options will get a turn to disappoint and frustrate? Is it possible for Zlatan Ibrahimović to move less on the pitch?
United made short work of the Foxes in the reverse fixture in September, running out comfortable 4-1 winners. With United looking more like a Van Gaal-era tribute act in recent weeks, and Leicester in dire need of points, Sunday is unlikely to be as straightforward.
As was the case in midweek, dropped points by teams in the top four have presented United with an opportunity to close the gap on those coveted Champions League qualification places. However, in accordance with the laws of gods and men, United will remain in sixth, no matter the result against Leicester.
