LEICESTER, November 28- Leicester City will be looking to continue their good run of form when they welcome Manchester United to the King Power Stadium on Saturday.

The Foxes are unbeaten in their last six Premier League outings, while they have lost just one game all season.

As such, they currently lead the standings, sitting just one point clear of their weekend opposition, who are second.

At the heart of their form has been striker Jamie Vardy, who last weekend equalled Ruud van Nistelrooy’s Premier League record of scoring in 10 successive matches.

The England international, though, has a slight hip problem, but is expected to feature against United as he looks to break that record.

Matty James is Leicester’s only injury absentee and has yet to feature this season due to his long-term knee injury.

The Red Devils are also in good form, having lost just two of their last 10 games in all competitions and are unbeaten in their last five encounters.

Despite their good run, some supporters have been upset with United’s performances of late, but Louis van Gaal insists he is satisfied with what he’s seen from his side.

Phil Jones (ankle) and Ander Herrera (hamstring) are both ruled out of action this week, while Michael Carrick is also unlikely to feature.

Luke Shaw and Antonio Valencia remain long-term absentees with their respective injuries.
