Confirmed Man United starting XI vs Leicester City: Youngster given debut as Amad starts too

Manchester United are preparing to host Leicester City at Old Trafford in Tuesday’s top-four Premier League clash.

Tuesday afternoon’s game sees the Red Devils take on their second opponents in just nine days.

Coming into the game, United are on an excellent domestic run of form. The side’s 3-1 win over Aston Villa on Sunday now sees them unbeaten in their last 14 Premier League matches.

Looking to extend their impressive run while dealing with a gruelling run-in, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has named a strong, albeit, rotated side.

Goalkeeper David De Gea reclaims his place in between the sticks alongside a back four of Brandon Williams, Eric Bailly, Axel Tuanzebe and Alex Telles.

In midfield veteran, Juan Mata gets his fifth Premier League start of the season and will play alongside Nemanja Matic and Donny van de Beek.

All the excitement will be at the top end of the pitch though – youngster Anthony Elanga has been awarded his senior debut and forms part of an attacking trio also comprising of Mason Greenwood and winger Amad.
