Preview: Leicester City vs. Manchester United

Sports Mole previews the Premier League clash between Leicester City and Manchester United.

Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson has goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel available for the visit of Manchester United.

Schmeichel missed the 1-0 victory over Stoke City through injury, but the Dane could return to replace Ben Hamer.

Esteban Cambiasso could be handed a full debut at the King Power Stadium, while Danny Drinkwater could also be included in midfield.

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal witnessed his team ease to a 4-0 win against Queens Park Rangers last Sunday and that has improved the mood at Old Trafford.

Van Gaal is unlikely to make many alterations to the side that won that game, with only Luke Shaw potentially replacing Tyler Blackett and Marcos Rojo stepping into the centre of defence.

On-loan striker Radamel Falcao is likely to find himself on the substitutes' bench for a second successive game.
