United storm Leicester’s home tonight

Manchester United square off against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium this evening looking to record their third successive win in the Premier League.

Meanwhile, the Foxes are still searching for their first victory in the top flight, the club currently sitting bottom of the standings.

Ahead of their meeting with Liverpool, United boss Erik ten Hag would have naturally had concerns that his side would succumb to a third defeat in a row in the Premier League.

However, in the space of two matches, the mood at Old Trafford has changed for the better, United following a 2-1 success over fierce rivals Liverpool with a 1-0 triumph at Southampton.

The most recent win came in far different circumstances and atmosphere than the Liverpool showdown, but that is what Ten Hag will take confidence from as he looks to transform United into a team which do not look devoid of character and passion against the lower teams in the division.

Bruno Fernandes answered criticism of his form with a quite wonderful finish at St Mary’s, the playmaker getting on the scoresheet for the first time since May 2.

While Ten Hag will not be getting carried away with his team scoring just four times in as many matches, they have come through the first stage of their test of character with flying colours.

Brendan Rodgers requires a similar response from his Leicester players with the club losing three consecutive fixtures in the Premier League. – SportsMole
