Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers has overseen a hugely underwhelming summer, with star centre-back Wesley Fofana and long-time goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel both leaving, but just free agent Alex Smithies arriving. United, meanwhile, are now the highest-spending team in Europe after signing Antony from Ajax in a deal worth around £84million.
United manager Erik ten Hag appears to have shaken off a disastrous start with wins over Liverpool and Southampton but anything less than another victory tonight would hamper their progress.

Leicester vs Manchester United prediction
Leicester have been fairly dismal so far this season and are showing no real sign of improvement, while United appear to have shaken off their own dire start with back-to-back wins.
United are still a long way for being reliable, but should have enough about them to make it three victories on the bounce.
United to win 2-1.
