Man United v Leicester City probable lineups – £19m Caglar Soyuncu sidelined for season opener

Caglar Soyuncu

The Premier League kicks off tonight when Manchester United host Leicester City at Old Trafford tonight.

The Foxes completed the signing of Turkey international Caglar Soyuncu on transfer deadline day from the Bundesliga side Freiberg for £19 million.

However, as we previously reported, Soyuncu will not make his debut tonight following an injury he picked up during the pre-season.

The 22-year-old is expected to return in approximately two weeks.

It is unclear whether Soyuncu will be a first-team regular this season. The former Altinordu defender will have to compete with, Johnny Evans, Wes Morgan, Harry Maguire, Filip Benkovic, and Yohan Benaloune for a starting place.

The system Claud Puel deploys this season could have a major impact on the amount of playing time Soyuncu receives.

Leicester will be without Matty James tonight while Evans, Gray, Maguire, Mendy and Vardy are all doubts.

Man United will be unable to call upon Dalot, Matic, Rojo and Valencia due to injuries.
