MANCHESTER UNITED opens the Premier League Boxing Day games TODAY with a trip to Leicester City

But the formally strong foxes sit in second place and start the match that was strengthened by their 2-0 win at Tottenham last weekend

20 The Foxes have another chance to swing a free kick this time around after Barnes fell about 40 yards away

15 It was a brilliant start to the game, but both teams are back in second place at the moment Gear engaged

There are 288 caps between them, a lot of strength and experience in case that is needed this afternoon

The Spaniard tried to play it from behind, but a bad pass fell to Vardy, who looks focused as always

Fortunately for De Gea, his defense lawyers managed to help him and make the danger clear

4 Good build-ups from the away side before the ball finally fell at Martial’s feet

He rocked a little before firing the shot, but it was actually a tamed effort

Justin Hunt put in a decent ball from the right for Vardy to attack, but the England international did not combine with the volley like he wanted

Gorgeous floating ball by Fernandes that fell right on the head of Rashford who was supposed to do a lot better

There have been real reasons for concern that Solskjaer is at the helm of Manchester United, and many have suggested that he may not be the right man for the job

A 6-1 drumming through Spurs started it all, followed by a Champions League elimination after leading their group for much of the campaign

But now the fate of the former Manchester United striker seems to be changing and the future looks bright again

The Red Devils are currently in third place, with a game in hand over the two teams above them This is the healthiest position United has been in since Sir Alex Ferguson’s last year in office

Furthermore, United’s demolition of Leeds last Sunday meant that only Liverpool and Chelsea have scored more goals than they have so far this season

A win for Solskjaer’s men today could put them in a really good position to stay in the prestigious Champions League spots, or better yet, to fight for the title!

I know United fans read that smile, but don’t get too far, there is still a long way to go

Robbie Savage believes Leicester could potentially win the league, but Manchester United legend Paul Scholes revealed what the former Welsh international really said off camera

Wait a minute Jake, he just told me on camera that he doesn’t think Leicester can win the league Make your stories clear, can they win or not?

Can Leicester win the Premier League this season? 🏆🤔 @ RobbieSavage8 is undoubtedly reachable, but Paul Scholes doesn’t! ❌ ImageTwittercom / Gst5cYUctF
