The Englishman was forced to leave the pitch with an injury after 55 minutes of Man United’s 0-0 draw against Hull City earlier in the week.
He was by far our best player on the pitch even though he had only played half the game and received a big ovation from the crowd as he walked down the tunnel. with his boot in his hand.
Mourinho confirmed he would not be in action on Sunday afternoon in his press conference ahead of the game.
Jose confirmed Phil Jones is out of Leicester match with foot injury he suffered v Hull. "He's injured," Jose said.

Hopes were Jones would be back in action after he confirmed he was feeling fine with minimal bruising on his foot and it’ll be a massive blow to have him sidelined.
However, with Jones, Mourinho will not want to take any chances taking his injury record at United into consideration, as they’ve stopped him from reaching his true potential at the club.
He’s been playing his best football in a United shirt under Mourinho and there’s no doubt that once he’s fit, will return back into the starting XI alongside Eric Bailly.
