Old Trafford is use to hosting the Premier League champions, but no one could have predicted this at the start of the season. Leicester City travel to Manchester United knowing a win would secure them the Premier League title. United will be out to spoil the party however as they chase their own top four ambitions.

This is set to be a remarkable day at Old Trafford on a weekend when Leicester City can miraculously claim the title with two games still to play.

Three points would take Leicester City ten points clear of Spurs in second and would spark huge celebrations across the country.

The Foxes have only lost three times this season in what has been the most stunning and confusing story in football history.

This time last year; Nigel Pearson was guiding his side to an amazing relegation escape, and now Claudio Ranieri is one win away from sporting immortality.

It would truly be the most incredible sporting story, but Manchester United will be out to spoil the party.

They themselves need a win to keep pace with Arsenal in fourth and will hope their opponents let the pressure get to them.

United’s form has been good as of late and with only two losses at home this season, Leicester will have to bring something special to secure the title at the Theatre of Dreams.

They might have to rely on the PFA Player of the Year Riyad Mahrez to provide that special piece of magic, as he has done on 17 occasions already this year.

Team News:

With Wayne Rooney established back into the starting XI, United are now only waiting on a handful of senior players to return.

Midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger is still out with a knee injury, which looks set to keep the German out until next season.

This weekend is also too soon for Adnan Januzaj, who is unlikely to be fit until next weekend.

Luke Shaw, who has returned to training outside, has stepped up his recovery, but is unlikely to play for his club until next season.

Leicester will be without their star striker Jamie Vardy. The England international is serving the last of his two-match ban for descent.

Leonardo Ulloa, who replaced Vardy last week, will be monitored ahead of this crunch tie after picking up a back injury.
