The last three meetings between Leicester and Manchester United at the King Power have been about stepping closer to glory – two Premier League duels where qualification for the Champions League was on the line, and a FA Cup quarter-final in March – but this one is more about getting back on the right track after stuttering starts to their seasons. Injuries in defence should harden both teams’ commitment to attack; this has the ingredients for a goal-fest. Paul Doyle
