Both Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Jesse Lingard returned from England duty due to injury and illness respectively but should be fit to face Leicester.
Paul Pogba was unable to feature for France over the international break due to an ankle injury and, along with compatriot Anthony Martial, is ruled out.
Mason Greenwood could be in line to start in attack, with Andreas Pereira moving into a deeper role from the stalemate with Southampton.
Unlike their hosts the Foxes have their strongest lineup available for the trip to Old Trafford and they’ll be keen to prove capable of competing with United for a place in the top six.
Some would argue that Leicester’s XI is stronger than that of their hosts right now, but Brendan Rodgers is likely to make at least one defensively minded change from the win over Bournemouth.
Hamza Choudhury may well come into the midfield, moving James Maddison to a wider role on the left, while Ayoze Perez will hope to replace Marc Albrighton.
Manchester United‘s top scorer this season is D. James with 3 goals so far this season. P. Pogba has assisted the most with 2 assists since the start of the campaign.
