Scott McTominay is fit to start but Aaron Wan-Bissaka misses out as Manchester United get set to face off against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made wholesale changes to the side that started in the Carabao Cup against Everton, for their Premier League encounter versus Leicester City on Saturday.
David de Gea returns in goal, replacing Dean Henderson who started in midweek. Victor Lindelof starts at the expense of Axel Tuanzebe, while Luke Shaw replaces Alex Telles at left-back. Eric Bailly and Harry Maguire are retained in the lineup. Aaron Wan-Bissaka is absent from the squad altogether. It will be interesting to see who slots in at right-back or if United set up in a three-man defence.
🥊 In the red corner for today's Boxing Day encounter…

The big news, though, is Scott McTominay is fit enough to start after having picked up a groin injury last weekend against Leeds United. The Scotsman starts alongside Fred in the middle of the park, with Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba dropping out to the bench.
Daniel James get the nod at right-wing ahead of Mason Greenwood, while Bruno Fernandes continues in the No. 10 role. Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford return to the starting XI after featuring as substitutes in the midweek win against Everton.
Manchester United Starting Lineup: de Gea, Lindelof, Bailly, Maguire, Shaw, McTominay, Fred, James, Bruno Fernandes, Martial, Rashford.
