16:02 - That brings to end to today's Vavels live commentary between Manchester United and Leicester City. I hope you have enjoyed our coverage and I have been Brandon Sayer and until next time have a good night. 

16:00 - United began the game strong and got an opener in the 8th minute when Martial calmly slotted the ball past Schmeichel. Leicester though with their never say die attitude fought back and equalised nine minutes later through Morgan. The rest of the game was tight and even though Drinkwater got sent off before the end the Foxes held on to get a good draw against United. 

15:58 - The Foxes are unable to win the Premier League at Old Trafford but they will now sit back and wait to see if Spurs can beat Chelsea as if they don't they will win the trophy regardless.

41' - Morgan almost scored his second goal of the game but he headed over the bar when he was unmarked. Big let off for United. 

39' - De Gea just about keeps a cross from Schlupp out of his goal with an incredible save. It was meant as a cross but it was mishit which made it harder for the Spanish keeper. 

30' - Lingard intercepts a bad pass from Danny Simpson and looks like he is about to go through on goal to score but then a tangle of legs stops the winger getting the goal but the referee says it wasn't a foul to the dismay of the Old Trafford crowd.

12:50 - Good afternoon everyone, I am Brandon Sayer and I will be doing today's text commentary for today's game between Manchester United and Leicester City at Old Trafford for Vavel. It's a big game for both clubs with the Foxes potentially winning the Premier Leavue today while for the Reds they know they need to win to keep up their top four hopes. 

We'll have confirmed team news for you at 13:05BST from Old Trafford with kick-off at 14:05BST.

Leicester City predicted XI: Schmeichel; Simpson, Morgan, Huth, Fuchs; Schlupp, Kante, Drinkwater, Mahrez; Okazaki, Ulloa.

Manchester United predicted XI: De Gea; Fosu-Mensah, Smalling, Blind, Rojo; Schneiderlin, Fellaini, Rooney; Martial, Rashford, Lingard.

On the other hand, Claudio Ranieri revealed once again that the Foxes have no new injuries ahead of the game. The only absentee for the Foxes is Vardy, who will miss the game with suspension after the FA gave him an extra game after being sent off versus West Ham United two weeks ago. Vardy will be a big miss but as Leonardo Ulloa showed without the England striker last weekend he can be the man to step up and fill Vardy's boots.

Regarding injuries ahead of the game Louis van Gaal revealed at his pre-match press conference that he had no new injuries to contend with. That means that only Luke Shaw and Schweinsteiger will miss the game. The good news on Shaw from van Gaal was that the left-back is doing really well which is good ahead of a possible return before the end of the season after suffering a leg break

The game between these sides at Old Trafford last season saw United come out on top winning the game 3-1. The goals for the Reds that day came from a Wes Morgan own goal, Radamel Falcao and Robin Van Persie while Marcin Wasilewski scored for the Foxes. Earlier this season at the King Power Stadium these teams drew 1-1 after Jamie Vardy opened to scoring and then Bastian Schweinsteiger scored the equaliser.

The game this weekend is a hard one to call with United winning their last six Premier League games at Old Trafford while Leicester have taken 13 points from their last six away games only Spurs and Chelsea have taken the same amount in the last six. Leicester also have the best away record in the league this season while United are third in the home table having only lost two games all season at the Theatre of Dreams.

The problem that Leicester face is that they will come up against a fired-up United team knowing that they cannot allow another team to win the title on their home ground. The United players will also be buzzing after making it to the FA Cup final last weekend after defeating Everton at Wembley 2-1 so they will be looking to keep up the momentum until the end of the season.

It has been a fairytale season for the Foxes and after they defeated Swansea City 4-0 last weekend, coupled with Tottenham Hotspur drawing 1-1 at home to West Bromwich Albion it now means they are on the brink of making history. The Foxes will be hoping to achieve it this weekend, so they don't have to have to go into their final two games with nerves hanging over them.

The game is much more than an average game this weekend with Leicester coming to Old Trafford knowing that if they win the game, they will be the champions with two games to spare. On the other hand, United are still fighting hard for a top four place which they currently are five points behind Arsenal and Manchester City with a game in hand, so this game is vital for the Reds to win. 

Hello there everyone, and welcome to VAVEL UK's live minute-by-minute commentary of Manchester United - Leicester City at Old Trafford in a game which is massive for both clubs with so few games left in the season. Kick-off at Old Trafford is set for 2:05 BST, so stick with us until then as we build up to the game and get the confirmed team news.
