Manchester United only just got off the pitch at Villa Park on Sunday afternoon, but they’re already back in Premier League action on Tuesday, hosting Leicester City at Old Trafford. Under normal circumstances, this match would be highly anticipated given the implications for the league’s top four spots. But these are not normal circumstances — United are almost guaranteed to field a heavily rotated team with another match against Liverpool in just two days, and Leicester are themselves reeling from injuries and have one eye on a cup final.
David de Gea may make a Premier League return in goal for the first time since being replaced by Dean Henderson, but the entire outfield could well be made up of back-ups and youngsters. With Harry Maguire going off injured on Sunday, Eric Bailly and Axel Tuanzebe are likely to start. Dan James is out injured as well, which means that one or both of Amad Diallo and Shola Shoretire could be in line for their first league starts.
