Leicester City vs Manchester United live stream, Thursday 1 September, 8pm
Manchester United will be seeking a third consecutive win in the Premier League when they take on Leicester on Thursday.
Erik ten Hag endured the worst possible start to his United (opens in new tab) career, losing back-to-back games against Brighton (opens in new tab) and Brentford (opens in new tab) at the beginning of the campaign. But a 2-1 triumph over arch-rivals Liverpool (opens in new tab) helped to restore a degree of optimism at Old Trafford, before United ground out a 1-0 win against Southampton (opens in new tab) at the weekend.
It was not a vintage display from Ten Hag’s team, for whom Bruno Fernandes notched the winner in the second half. Southampton probably deserved a point on the balance of play, but United dug deep to leave St Mary’s with a clean sheet.
The mood was boosted further when the Red Devils completed the signing of Antony earlier this week. The Brazilian did not come cheap at £85.5m, but he was one of Ten Hag’s top targets this summer and the manager will be delighted to have got the deal over the line late in the window.
Leicester (opens in new tab) go into this game at the foot of the table following a 2-1 defeat by Chelsea (opens in new tab) at the weekend. The Foxes had an extra man for more than half of the match after Conor Gallagher’s red card in the first half, but they could not make that numerical advantage count. With just one point from the first 12 available, Brendan Rodgers is under pressure to turn things around.
United will have to make do without Brandon Williams, Victor Lindelof and Facundo Pellestri, while Anthony Martial is a doubt. Antony is not available for this match following his move, but Casemiro could make his first start for the club at the base of midfield. Ten Hag will be tempted to keep Cristiano Ronaldo on the bench after back-to-back wins with Marcus Rashford up front.
Leicester will be unable to call upon the services of Ricardo Pereira and Ryan Bertrand, while James Maddison is set to undergo a late fitness test.
Kick-off is at 8pm BST on Thursday 1 September and is being shown on BT Sport 1 (opens in new tab). See below for international broadcast options.

Use a VPN to watch Premier League football from outside your country
If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee
FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar (opens in new tab) love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS4 and loads more.

NordVPN with quality mobile and desktop apps
A cheaper option and almost ExpressVPN's equal when it comes to quality, too. A single subscription covers six connections, so you can use it on mobile, laptop, streaming devices and more, all at the same time.
Surfshark offers a great VPN at a fraction of the price
It's clear to see why Surfshark is top of TechRadar's best cheap VPN table – it combines an excellent product with bargain pricing, starting at £2/$2.50 a month!
