Leicester City welcome Louis van Gaal's Manchester United to the King Power Stadium for Sunday lunch time kick-off in the Premier League.

The Foxes come into this game following their first win of the season as they beat Stoke City 1-0 at the Britannia Stadium. They are now out of the bottom three and are currently in 10<sup>th place. They will hope to continue their good run and emulate their performance against Arsenal at home, which saw them pick up a deserved point.

Nigel Pearson will be hoping for another great performance from their in-form striker Leonardo Ulloa, who has now scored three goals in four matches. Leicester also have eight former United players on their books.

Meanwhile, Manchester United come into this game following their first win of the season. The Red Devils beat Queens Park Rangers 4-0 at Old Trafford to give manager Louis van Gaal his first competitive win.

The Dutchman unleashed his new signings against QPR and United look to have got their swagger back following the £150m summer spending spree. Angel di Maria was the pick of the new arrivals, as he set up one and scored a goal to make his mark in the team.

The competition for places among the big stars at the club will make for interesting viewing, as van Gaal will have to choose between Robin van Persie and Radamel Falcao to partner captain Wayne Rooney up front.

Stat of the match: United have beaten Leicester in their last nine Premier League meetings.

What Managers Say

Nigel Pearson: "If you look at the Arsenal game, there is no doubt there was a spirit and togetherness. We have some very exciting players and prospects.

We can't be happy with what we've done so far. I don't know what system they (United) will play to start with. It will be interesting in itself. They have some very good players, there is no doubt about that. Can we play the game not the occasion?

The scrutiny and build up to games like this would suggest there is an awful lot at stake. That in itself can bring different pressures. We have to get our preparation right and try and not get too wrapped up in the occasion."

Louis van Gaal: "Leicester played against Arsenal at home (drew 1-1) and previously Chelsea away (lost 2-0) and for one hour it was 0-0 so I don't think it's an easy game tomorrow.

The character in the Leicester team is very good but I want to continue of course and improve the level of last Sunday. The result was very good I think – 4-0 is a big result but also the way we have played, I think the fans shall enjoy it.

I hope to do that again because that's our goal and the purpose of the game is to entertain the fans."
