What is it?
The Boxing Day clash between second and third in the Premier League: Brendan Rodgers’ Flying Foxes (Leicester City) and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s in-form away winning machine (Manchester United).
When is it?
Saturday, December 26
What time is kick-off?
12.30pm, the first of six Premier League matches on Boxing Day.
What TV channel is it on?
BT Sport 1 for this one, live from 11.30am. You can also join JJ Bull on the Telegraph’s live blog from the same time.
What is the team news?
Talisman Jamie Vardy hobbled off late on in the win at Tottenham with a hip problem but will be fit for this one. Aside from that, Caglar Soyuncu is closing in on a return but Rodgers may hold him back for this one. Ricardo Pereira is the only other absentee.
Manchester United could be without Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Scott McTominay after both picked up knocks against Leeds and missed United’s midweek League Cup win over Everton.
What have we said about the clubs?
Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof are firmly established as Solskjaer’s first choice centre back pairing but the manager wants more quality and pace in the position as United bid to get back on top. James Ducker has all the latest transfer news, including why David Alaba is unlikely to be seen at Old Trafford.
Also on United… after doing a number on Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa, can Solskjaer do the same to Rodgers on Boxing Day?
What are the odds?
What’s our prediction?
Both teams will be desperate to keep the pressure on leaders Liverpool. A fit and firing Jamie Vardy should cause the visiting defence plenty of problems but don’t forget this is a United side who are relishing being on their travels of late, becoming only the fourth side in English top-flight history to win 10 successive away games. Manchester United to sneak another late winner and triumph 2-1.
