Victor Lindelof reaches milestone as Solskjaer makes five Man Utd changes for Leicester

Victor Lindelof will make a landmark 150th appearance for Manchester United in the FA Cup quarter-final away to Leicester City.

The Swedish international retains his place in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s rotated lineup to face the Foxes at the King Power.

Lindelof has been in fine form in recent weeks and delivered one of his most accomplished performances in the midweek Europa League triumph over AC Milan at the San Siro.

He partners captain Harry Maguire again in defence as United look to return to Wembley for their second-consecutive FA Cup semi-final.

Lindelof joined United from Benfica in the summer of 2017 and this milestone shows impressive consistency under both Jose Mourinho and current boss Solskjaer.

Elsewhere, Alex Telles replaces Luke Shaw at left-back and Paul Pogba and Donny van de Beek both returning to the side.

Anthony Martial is set to lead the line with Marcus Rashford out injured, while Bruno Fernandes, Edinson Cavani and Amad have all been named on a strong United bench.

Man Utd XI to face Leicester: Henderson; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Telles; Matic, Fred, Van de Beek; Pogba Martial, Greenwood.
