The Foxes are winless in four matches and let a two-goal lead slip at Crystal Palace in a 2-2 draw before the international break. 
This left them in 13th spot on the league standings and far off where they will want to be by the end of the campaign. 
United are without a win in two matches. The Red Devils followed a 1-0 loss at home to Aston Villa with a 1-1 draw against Everton at Old Trafford and went into the break two points behind league leaders Chelsea. 
"I thought we played really well in the first half and created a lot of chances. Second half we slow it down, once again we make that mistake," United midfielder, Bruno Fernandes, told MUTV following the match against the Toffees. 

"We have to learn and the time is now. We cannot do it anymore. We did it so many times. We cannot slow it down when we are winning. We have to make it quicker, score another one or two and then after that you can slow it down a little and make them run more.

"It is not good enough, we should have more points, but this is what we have now. We have to look forward now to what we can do until the end of the season," he added.
