Harry Maguire is fit to start while Cristiano Ronaldo and Paul Pogba return as Manchester United prepare to take on Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made five changes to the side that started in the 1-1 draw with Everton last time out as Manchester United get set to lock horns with Leicester City at the King Power Stadium. There are no shuffles in goal, where David de Gea retains his spot.

The defensive setup sees a surprise pick, as Harry Maguire has been passed fit to start. The Manchester United captain replaces the injured Raphael Varane at the back, with Victor Lindelof his central defensive partner. Out wide, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Luke Shaw continue as the two full-backs.

Up ahead in midfield, there is no sign of Scott McTominay has surprisingly been dropped to the bench, with Nemanja Matic starting in the double pivot. Alongside the veteran Serb, Paul Pogba will be stationed in a deeper role in the absence of Fred.

Like Fred, Edinson Cavani is unavailable, meaning Cristiano Ronaldo is back in the starting lineup, leading the line for Manchester United against Leicester City. Bruno Fernandes will play off of his compatriot while Jadon Sancho takes up the left wing slot, seeing as Pogba is deployed in the double pivot. The final spot in the side is handed to Mason Greenwood, who is on the right flank.

Manchester United Starting Lineup: de Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, Matic, Pogba, Greenwood, Bruno Fernandes, Sancho, Ronaldo
