Man United heads to the King Power Stadium on Sunday and Solskjaer insists the French duo Pogba and Martial are set to play.

We’ve not had a proper session since the game, so hopefully both of them can get through that.

“I don’t think there’s anything with Paul. Anthony has done some rehab work, so he will try a session today.

“I would imagine he would be available to be involved. He seemed happy yesterday,” Solskjaer stressed on Friday.

The Red Devils have won six of their last seven Premier League fixtures under Solskjaer while the Foxes are yet to win since January 1.

The Norwegian is mindful of the threat Leicester bring into matches after seeing them battled league leaders Liverpool to a 1-1 draw at Anfield on Wednesday.

I watched their game [against Liverpool] on Wednesday and it is a team full of energy and pace,” Solskjaer admitted during his pre-match press conference.

So of course, they defend well, because they drop back and defend, so it’s hard to break them down and they’ve got the pace up front with [Jamie] Vardy, [Demarai] Gray, [James] Maddison, [Marc] Albrighton.

“[Also] Leicester beat Chelsea. So it’s going to be a tough challenge, but we like challenges,” he submitted.
