United in search of home comfort against Leicester

Manchester United eased some of the pressure on manager Jose Mourinho by beating Northampton Town in midweek but that will count for little if it loses to Premier League champion Leicester City on Saturday.

United halted a run of three successive losses - the first time Mourinho had suffered such a run since he was in charge of Porto in 2002 - by winning 3-1 at League One side Northampton in the EFL Cup on Wednesday.

That result earned United a last-16 tie at home to derby rival Manchester City, whose 100 percent winning start to the season under Pep Guardiola has contrasted starkly with United's stuttering beginnings.
