by Sam Peoples

Manchester United XI vs Leicester City: De Gea, Valencia, Smalling, Bailly, Blind, Herrera, Pogba, Rashford, Mata, Lingard, Ibrahimovic

Subs: Romero, Fosu-Mensah, Rojo, Rooney, Carrick, Fellaini, Young

Jose Mourinho has dropped Wayne Rooney for Manchester United’s game against Leicester City at Old Trafford.

It’s the boldest decision so far by Mourinho and absolutely the correct one. He’s been bang average this season and his form certainly doesn’t warrant him starting every single game.

Jesse Lingard returns to the team after some time out injured but neither Luke Shaw or Henrikh Mkhitaryan are available for today’s game.
