Manchester United are set to face Leicester on Saturday, October 16, once Premier League action resumes after international break.
Ahead of the match the Foxes have been handed quadruple injury blows with Wilfred Ndidi, Jonny Evans, Wesley Fofana and James Justin unable to play against Red Devils.
Ndidi was left out of the Nigeria squad for the current international break, causing concern that he had picked up an injury, something which proved to be the case.
Evans was named in the Northern Ireland squad for the international break, but didn’t feature. However, his country’s manager, Leicester-born Ian Baraclough, has said he has an “outside chance” of being fit for this weekend’s game.
Fofana suffered the serious injury during the pre-season friendly fixture against Villarreal and is facing six months on the sidelines.
While Justin sustained anterior cruciate ligament damage during the FA Cup win over Brighton in February, undergoing surgery and rehabilitation in the months that followed. He will only return in November.
