United’s form dipped just prior to the break, with a 1-0 home defeat to Aston Villa followed by a 1-1 draw with Everton at Old Trafford to raise fresh questions about Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s management.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored a crucial late winner in the Champions League against Villarreal in-between those fixtures to give the Norwegian some breathing space but United will be desperate to return to winning ways in the league.
Leicester, meanwhile, will be hoping that the international break can prove a turning point, with Brendan Rodgers’ side having failed to match the highs of last season so far.
