Diogo Dalot, David de Gea and Anthony Martial have been pictured returning to Carrington as Manchester United prepare to face Leicester City on Saturday.

Dalot, who is yet to feature this season, spent ten days at Shanghai SIPG receiving specialist treatment for a pelvic injury and should be in contention to face Brendan Rodgers’ side.

Martial, too, should be back in the starting XI after missing the 1-1 draw with Southampton due to an injury sustained against Crystal Palace.

The players were seen pulling back into Carrington as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men look to get back on the right track against the Foxes.

This is the kind of game which could really trip United up: at Old Trafford, for one thing, against a team whose technical ability and fluidity seems to be genuinely superior based on the first four games.

Losing to Leicester would be one thing; losing to them deservedly would pose the same kind of existential questions which plagued both Jose Mourinho and Solskjaer last season.

This team has to do more than claim three points. Big players like Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford, to name just a couple, must assume a dictatorial role, as opposed to merely reacting to Leicester’s football and hoping for the best.
