Manchester United are set to take on Leicester City in Saturday afternoon’s late Premier League kick-off.
The Red Devils, led by interim boss Ralf Rangnick, currently sit sixth in the Premier League table on 50-points, four points behind Arsenal in fourth, who also have a game in hand.
Therefore, it goes without saying, with just nine games to go, Saturday’s game at Old Trafford against Brendan Rodgers’ travelling Foxes is a must-win for the Red Devils if they’re to stand any chance of qualifying for next season’s Champions League.

Although set to be without star striker Cristiano Ronaldo, who has been forced out of action after suffering from flu-like symptoms, Rangnick has still been able to name a very strong starting 11, including David De Gea, Raphael Varane, Bruno Fernandes and Jadon Sancho.
Speaking ahead of the important tie, Rangnick gave his thoughts on how his side can get the better of Leicester City, who, prior to the recent international break, have won three of their last four league matches.
“They are a team who always try to play – a technical team,” Rangnick said.
“For us, it’s important again to find the best possible balance of being defensive and being as compact as we can be and at the same time, creating our own moments.”
