The Foxes, who defeated United in the reverse fixture at Leigh Sports Village in September, will run out for the first time in Premier League 2 Division 1 at Seagrave for a 7pm kick-off on Monday.

Irish midfielder Flynn, meanwhile, believes it is a landmark which all the Club's younger players are excited by as a new era continues to take shape at LCFC Training Ground.

"I’ve seen the pictures and the videos, but when you’re there, it’s unbelievable," the 19-year-old told recently, discussing the wealth of facilities on offer for seasons to come.

"When you drive in at the gates, you're just speechless. Just the quality of the entire place is second to none, it’s the best around, that’s the reality of it, so it’ll be exciting to play there.

It’s definitely an extra bit of motivation, because that is the pinnacle of training ground facilities, it’s just incredible.

"It’s an absolutely top-class facility. It’s a massive boost for the entire club, not just the first team, but for the Academy as well.

"It’s definitely an extra bit of motivation, because that is the pinnacle of training ground facilities, it’s just incredible."

However, Flynn is well aware of the test Man Utd are likely to pose on Monday evening, but backed his team-mates to rise to the occasion and seal three points.

Take a look at how Leicester City Football Club's new training ground has progressed since work started on the site in spring 2019.

"They’re a team who like to get the ball down and play," he continued. "You look at their first team at the minute, as well as ours, they’re both flying.

"They’ve signed some players recently for big money who will be prospects for the first team but at the minute are in the Under-23s team.

"We know what we’re going to get against Manchester United. They want to play fast, attacking football and we have to nullify that, which I think we did to great effect away.

"We came away with the win up there and, if we perform the way we know we can, we should be confident in our own ability to get the three points."
