Leicester: Jose Mourinho wants Manchester United's misfiring stars to put a smile back on his face by blitzing troubled Leicester on Sunday.
Mourinho has cut a frustrated figure in recent weeks as his side delivered one punchless display after another.
His anger boiled over following Wednesday's goalless draw with lowly Hull when he stormed out of a television interview, criticised the referee and claiming the authorities punish him more severely than his managerial rivals.
United are unbeaten in 14 league games, but seven of those have ended in draws, including the last three.
Their 33-goal haul in the league is 12 less than any other top six side and Swedish veteran Zlatan Ibrahimovic is the only one of United's forwards posing any threat to opposing defences.
"I have to agree with you that we don't score enough goals and some of our players from these attacking, creative positions they could - they should - score more goals," he said.
"We attack so much and with so many players, and so many players have the freedom in our dynamic to reach scoring positions.
"But when you see the number of goals we score, there is not a true relation between our attacking production and the number of players we put always in attacking positions and the number of goals we score."
Given United's recent problems and Leicester's current predicament, this weekend's clash at the King Power Stadium offers an opportunity for one team to get back on track while plunging the loser into deep despair.
