No coach wants to break the winning combination, so the same starting line-up for the third successive match is expected from Mourinho.
After impressive displays in the opening two games, could be tempted to name Luke Shaw and Ashley Young are nearing a return to first-team action after both played an hour for United’s Under-23s against Swansea on Monday evening, while Marcos Rojo returned to training on Tuesday as he continues his own rehabilitation from a serious knee problem. Zlatan Ibrahimovic returned to the club on Thursday but is still on the road to recovering from a knee injury. The boss is likely to give an update on his squad during Friday’s pre-match press conference.

Marcos Rojo was seen in the training on Tuesday but he will continue to be sidelined with a knee problem. Also, fans went berserk when Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is recovering from a knee injury returned to the club on Thursday but he won’t be hitting the field any soon.
Leicester seems to work out well in Craig Shakespeare’s first full season leadership. In the 4-3 defeat away at Arsenal, the Foxes were leading 3-1 at one stage, with goals from Shinji Okazaki and Jamie Vardy but crumbled down under pressure later in the game. Then against the newly-promoted Brighton goals from Shinji Okazaki and Harry Maguire sealed game 2-0.
Leicester is at their best going into the clash against the Reds with Vicente Iborra, former Reds midfielder Danny Drinkwater and ex-Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho back in the team.
