Leicester vs Man Utd LIVE: Premier League updates from the King Power Stadium

Wilfred Ndidi returns to contention for Leicester’s Premier League game against Manchester United at the King Power Stadium.

The midfielder missed the Carabao Cup defeat to Manchester City in midweek as he served a one-match suspension, but he is available again on Saturday evening and could be restored to the starting line-up by Foxes boss Claude Puel.

It remains to be seen whether out-of-favour striker Islam Slimani will be involved, having been left out of the last five match-day squads. Matty James (Achilles) and Robert Huth (ankle) are nearing returns from their long injury absenses.

Antonio Valencia, Marouane Fellaini and Michael Carrick remain out as Manchester United travel to Leicester.

Jose Mourinho confirmed Valencia is sidelined with a hamstring injury, while appearing to rule midfielders Carrick and Fellaini out of the festive period.

Centre-back Eric Bailly is undergoing surgery on an ankle issue, but Paul Pogba is available for the Premier League once again having returned from his three-match domestic suspension in the Carabao Cup loss at Bristol City.
