By Joel Turner IN General,Lineup,Premier League - 09:15 Dec 23rd 2017

Man United must put the disappointment of their humbling against Bristol City behind them when they face Leicester City at the King Power Stadium this evening.

The EFL Cup holders were dumped out of the tournament following a 2-1 defeat on Thursday evening but must now return their focus to catching Premier League leaders Man City.

Manager Jose Mourinho will want an immediate response and will likely make wholesale changes to the side that was defeated in midweek.

Eric Bailly will be out for some time with a serious ankle injury sustained on international duty that required surgery. Marouane Fellaini is also likely to still be unavailable due to a knee injury.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic played the majority of the game against Bristol City but still appears to be short of match fitness.

Antonio Valencia picked up a slight hamstring injury against West Brom last weekend so is still a doubt.

Jose Mourinho made 10 changes against Bristol City but is likely to revert to a similar side to the on that beat West Brom.

Paul Pogba will make his first league appearance since his red card at Arsenal. Marcus Rashford could be given a rest, with Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata likely to return alongside Anthony Martial.

Romelu Lukaku is expected to lead the line for United.
