Manchester United take on Leicester City in the 2015/16 Premier League fixture at Old Trafford on 1 May.

Where to watch live

Kick-off is set for 2.05pm BST. Live coverage of the game is available on Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports 1 HD. Catch the highlights of the match on Match of the Day 2 on BBC One and BBC One HD at 10.30pm BST.


United come into this fixture after sealing a berth in the final of the FA Cup following their 2-1 victory over Everton. Marouane Fellaini gave the lead in the first half, but an own goal from Chris Smalling in the second half cancelled the lead.

It was Anthony Martial's late strike that saw the Red Devils register a win at Wembley to face Crystal Palace in the final. Louis van Gaal will now be looking for his fifth consecutive win when his side take on the Foxes on Sunday.

Leicester enter this match after a 4-0 win over Swansea City at the King Power Stadium. They were without the services of Jamie Vardy due to suspension against the Welsh club and still the Foxes clinched three crucial points comfortably.

Claudio Ranieri's side are a win away from winning the league title with two games to spare. Should they fail to win at Old Trafford and if Chelsea beat Tottenham on 2 May, Leicester will be crowned as the new Premier League winners.

What manager says

Louis van Gaal: "It was never easy to beat his teams. Valencia and Barcelona is also more or less a derby so it is a difficult match. He has always organised his teams very good."

Claudio Ranieri: "It is important for us to make a perfect game. The best away performance of the season, we have to do it. It is good we are doing something special. And of course I am very proud for everybody in Leicester, for our community."
