Following the break for internationals, Ralf Rangnick and Manchester United will face a huge challenge when they are set to welcome Leicester City to town. The Foxes have been performing better in recent times, with three wins from their last five matches , however lacking Jamie Vardy, getting past the United defense is easier to say than done. After Portugal was selected for their first World Cup behind performances from Diogo Dalot, Bruno Fernandes, and Cristiano Ronaldo, they’ll be looking to transfer that performance into their participation in Premier League as United risks being eliminated from Champions League contention.
However, with the search for a new manager being the main focus to Manchester United during the international break, is it likely to cause problems throughout the remainder of the season? With Erik Ten Hag speculation gaining momentum it could be a lull period.
