Man City vs Norwich

Man City vs Norwich : James Maddison is also one of the players missing with injury. Hence, Harvey Barnes and Ayoze Perez are likely to play as inside forwards, allowing Thomas and Justin to overlap and act as wingers in attack. Jamie Vardy is leading the Premier League Golden Boot race and will look to add to his 23 goals so far.

Kelechi Iheanacho has been effective from the bench and will look to come into the game at some point.

Probable Lineup (3-4-2-1): Schmeichel; Bennett, Morgan, Evans; Justin, Tielemans, Ndidi, Thomas; Perez, Barnes; Vardy

Manchester United

The Red Devils have no real key players absent apart from Luke Shaw, who hasn’t managed to gain full fitness. This means that the crunch game will see Brandon Williams start at left-back for Manchester United. David de Gea has come under immense pressure of late due to his unforced errors in goal. But, Solskjaer has hinted he will retain the Spaniard for the match against Leicester.

The rest of the backline picks itself, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire tasked with ensuring Leicester do not get much of a look-in towards the United goal.

Paul Pogba has made two costly errors in the last three Premier League matches and will be hoping to redeem himself against Leicester. Nemanja Matic is likely to hold the fort in midfield and allow Pogba the freedom to play more in a box-to-box role.

The usual culprits should line up in the front for Manchester United, with Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes, Mason Greenwood and Anthony Martial all expected to be at their 100% for the crunch tie. Odion Ighalo will look to have some impact on the game from the bench.

Probable Lineup (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Williams; Matic, Pogba; Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford; Martial

Champions League football is at stake when Manchester United take on Leicester City at the King Power on final day of the Premier League season.

United missed the chance to secure a top four place after being held to a 1-1 draw by West Ham at Old Trafford on Wednesday night but they still sit in pole position heading into the final game of the campaign on Sunday.

The Red Devils are currently third on goal difference from Chelsea but with fifth-placed Leicester just one point adrift, United need to avoid defeat to book a place in the Champions League while victory would secure third.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer knows how much is riding on the outcome of this game so he’ll be desperate not to slip-up but it’s not going to be easy against a Leicester side who will be devastated to miss out on Champions League football.

The Foxes sat comfortably in third for much of the season and looked nailed on to finish in the top four but they’ve really struggled since football returned in June so Brendan Rodgers will be determined to beat United tomorrow and reclaim a place in Europe’s elite competition.
