    Red blinkers off, Leicester are available at 4/1 to beat us, that looks really good value on what we've seen from both side this season, you can even get almost 11/4 for the draw as a saver.

    2-1 Leicester win, with at least one Leicester goal coming from Ndidi pick-pocketing Pogba 10 yards into Leicester's half, releasing it to Maddison, and Vardy racing on to his through ball to slam it home.

    Yeah it's the mighty Leicester coming. I fancy a sneaky 2:1 win though. If we're lucky. Because apparently up until this point in this season, we've been incredibly unlucky. FC Hope&Luck for the win.

    I said last week I think they'll win. But now I think the international break might have done us good and we might re-organise and force a 2-1 win. But we're not much better than Leicester in terms of squad quality and this is sadly the level we're at.

    Hopefully Martial and AWB are fit or we are in big trouble.

    Think it will be a draw, we will take lead, fluff numerous chances and then concede an equaliser before hanging on for the point.

    We've dropped points through a couple moments of naivety from the youngest squad in the league.

    The over reaction here has been sickening.

    Nothing suggests Leicester is a better team than us. We'll outplay them, like we have everyone else. Hopefully Rashford returns to form and Martial continues his form pre injury so we can put away our chances

    The young squad is suffering from mental issues IMO. We play well in the first half get a goal and then as soon as we are pegged back, we seem to not recover. Ole needs to sort this out ASAP.

    Anything is possible with this team.
    One week we smash Chelsea.
    Another week we lose to CP.
    No consistency.

    That's too black and white.

    The be rightly critical we have to say that they should have won all 4.They were nowhere near as bad as some people make out

    We definitely had it in us to win all four. We just haven't gotten over that hump yet. I think we'll go on a roll at some point.

    No, United need to manage the back injury. I imagine they'll monitor it and decide Friday/early Saturday.

    Been away for the majority of the break. Can't say I miss football at this moment. Was contemplating missing this one and just learned it's only to be shown on NBC stream in the US. No confidence we'll get more than a draw. Match week 5 and that's where we are. Sad times ahead.

    Leicester are very good this year IMO, but I think we should win all the same. Though genuinely believe their midfield is far more balanced and better overall. Confident enough though, we're at Old Trafford so should get the win. Would go with the following, but expecting Mata or Lingard for Fred. Fred will likely get his chances once the other cups start up and he impresses in those (if he does). Same with the youngsters.

    De Gea
    Wan Bissaka Lindelof Maguire Young
    McTominay Fred
    James Pogba Rashford
    Martial​

    Same team as the Soton game, except Martial coming in for Andreas.

    We have a good record against Leicester, so hope it continues. Backing Mata to score as he has a decent goal record against them.

    Think we should have won all 4 games, but they need to get this out of their heads and just play the football they are capable of. Score first and go for the kill.

    Hoping we hear good news in the next presser about Martial, Wan-Bissaka and Pogba. I highly doubt we will be missing all three, but even missing one or two of them doesn't fill me with much confidence, especially when Shaw and Dalot are out so Young has to play. We could be playing Young & Rojo at fullback here with McTominay and Andreas in midfield and a front three of James, Rashford, and Greenwood. Hopefully, we get the biggest boost possible which is everyone fit bar the obvious Dalot, Shaw, and Bailly. Lingard also left the international camp early due to illness, so maybe he won't start? It'd be nice to see us try a midfield three or maybe Mata (I wouldn't hold my breath on Gomes being involved unfortunately for anyone wishing for that).

    Until we get the presser information, I'd go/hope for:

    de Gea
    Wan-Bissaka Lindelof Maguire Young
    Andreas McTominay Pogba
    James Greenwood Rashford
    ---
    Romero; Rojo, Tuanzebe; Matic, Mata, Lingard; Martial​

    With at least four players having question marks over being 100% fit, I think it'd be quite the risk to start them all (Wan-Bissaka, Pogba, Lingard, Martial) only to have one or two of them break down and force us into early changes again. I'd rather we went with a more solid midfield three instead of playing an out-and-out no.10, as a lot of people seem to think Leicester's midfield will dominate ours. I don't fully buy into their midfield players being outright better than ours, but at least if it's 3v3 it'll be a contest either way. I'd like Greenwood to be given a chance down the middle, but it'll probably be Rashford with Greenwood on the Right and James on the Left unless Martial does start.

    I'm being pessimistic and have gone with Man Utd 1-2 Leicester. Big pressure on us and Ole after this game unless we win it, but for what it's worth I think as September goes on (and thus the season) we will get not only better, but start picking up the results we deserve. I think our overall play and chances created screams 10-12/12 points so far, but unfortunately we've ended up with 5.

    Just stop following football then if that's your attitude. As the old saying goes if you can't support us during the tough times, don't support us during the good time - and God knows we've had more than our share of good times.

    As is custom in the post-fergie era we will draw 1-1 at home to a team we should be beating.

    I had a dream/nightmare last night that we were thumped 6-2.

    125/1 odds if anyone fancies it.

    Going for a United win.

    Hoping the team can right some of the bad errors and start to push on. If not then it could be over quite quickly for Ole. Every game will start to look tough if we don't come through September well.

    Then stop watching, go watch a movie that you like or a TV series and come back in a couple of years when the good times are back at United like all the other gloryhunters.

    Funny to predict the team without the injured one (Pogba, AWB, Martial)

    Maybe something like that

    De Gea

    Tuanzebe
    Lindelof
    Maguire
    Young

    Matic / Fred
    Mc Tominay

    Pereira
    Mata/Lingard
    James

    Rashford

    That's a pretty weak one no ? especially midfield
