Official team news just after 1PM
Official team news, including starting line-ups, will be out at around 1:05PM in the UK. Stay tuned until then for more live build-up for Leicester City against Manchester United at the King Power Stadium on VAVEL UK.
Leicester inconsistent
Despite some huge victories against big sides, including Chelsea, Leicester have often come unstuck against the teams around them in the table. That's been their biggest issue, perhaps making those losses even more frustrating when they are compared to the performances against teams like City, Chelsea and Liverpool. They'll be hoping for another upset today.
Youri Tielemans late arrival
Youri Tielemans joined Leicester on loan from Monaco on transfer deadline day. It's a huge signing for the Foxes and could boost their season.
Leicester City will be without Daniel Amartey. He's still out with a broken ankle.
United still without Rojo
United remain without Marcos Rojo, but centre-back Chris Smalling returned to the substitutes bench against Burnley in midweek so will be available today.
Man United welcome back French duo
Solskjaer revealed that Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial should be fit for Sunday afternoon's match.

“We've not had a proper session since the game [vs Burnley], so hopefully both of them can get through that. I don't think there's anything with Paul. Anthony has done some rehab work, so he will try a session today, so I would imagine he would be available to be involved. He seemed happy yesterday.”

United try to get back to winning ways
But United were held by Burnley at Old Trafford on Tuesday night. The visitors went two goals ahead after a poor United performance but Solskjaer saw his Reds score twice in the final 10 minutes to earn a point and keep up their chase for the top four. Sunday is all about regaining their winning run.
Solskjaer's sweet success
Since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer arrived at Manchester United, no one has collected more Premier League points. No side has scored as many goals (19), no side has created as many chances (87) or had as many shots (121). And to top it all off, no side has conceded fewer goals (6).
Bournemouth rout Chelsea
Although it affects the title race in a lesser way, it could be argued that the biggest shock of them all came when Eddie Howe's AFC Bournemouth put Chelsea to the sword with a remarkable 4-0 victory. Thoroughly deserved and thoroughly emphatic, it's an historic fixture.
Midweek shocks
That Maguire strike and Leicester result was just one of many upsets. Manchester United themselves were held to a home draw by Burnley. It's the first time Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has not won with this United side. Up in Newcastle, the Geordies beat Liverpool's title rivals Manchester City 2-1 and helped their bid for Premier League football next season.
Leicester City form
Leicester City come into this afternoon's game off the back of a fantastic 1-1 draw with title favourites Liverpool. Centre-back Harry Maguire scored the all-important goal on the stroke of half-time in an eventful set of midweek fixtures.
Leicester City host Manchester United on Sunday afternoon
