Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how Leicester City could line up for their Premier League clash with Manchester United on Tuesday.

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has hinted that he may have to rest James Maddison for Tuesday's Premier League meeting with Manchester United at Old Trafford.

The English playmaker started in the weekend's defeat to Newcastle United but is not 100% after returning from a hip issue, so he may be granted the night off with the FA Cup final against Chelsea in mind.

Maddison dropping out of the side could see Ayoze Perez line up behind Big Six specialist Jamie Vardy and the in-form Kelechi Iheanacho, who boasts 10 goals from his last nine Premier League outings.

Wilfred Ndidi and Youri Tielemans should retain their places in the middle of the park for this crunch match, but a potential alteration on the left could see Luke Thomas provide fresh legs as Marc Albrighton makes way.

Ricardo Pereira's fitness will also need to be carefully managed after his own return from injury, so Timothy Castagne may feature on the right-hand side at Old Trafford.

Castagne moving out wide would allow Daniel Amartey to feature alongside Caglar Soyuncu and Wesley Fofana in Rodgers's back three, but Jonny Evans has joined Wes Morgan, James Justin and Harvey Barnes in the treatment room.

Leicester possible starting lineup: Schmeichel; Amartey, Soyuncu, Fofana; Castagne, Ndidi, Tielemans, Thomas; Perez; Iheanacho, Vardy
