Manchester United – Leicester is the first game from the new season in the Premier League and it should be a very promising game. Both teams have had a pretty good preparation stage and now they are ready for the big clashes in the Worlds strongest Championships. The game will start at 21:00 and it will take place on Old Trafford in Manchester, England.
Manchester United are the hosts in this game and have the advantage of the home ground. They will need it because they have a team of missing players due to injuries and World Cup fatigue. They made some good moves on the transfer market and the new signing will be on the pitch for this game. Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk will make his debut for the Red Devils and he will hope to make it in a good way. It will be hard for the host because we all know that Leicester is a fighting team and will give everything on the pitch. Jose Mourinho’s team are favorites to take this one home but it will be a hell of a clash as the World Cup champion, Paul Pogba is missing as well.
Manchester United: Gea – Shaw – Smalling – Bailly – Darmian – Perreira – Fred – Herrera – Sanchez – Rashford – Mata
Leicester had a better pre-season results than their opponents but with weaker teams as well. They made a lots of transfers for this new season but nothing extraordinary to say so. Ricardo Pereira from Porto and Rachid Ghezzal from Monaco are two of the best signings for them. They sold one of their key players, Riyad Mahrez to Manchester City and maybe that will affect their game. Jamie Vardy is also doubtful because of the tiredness that came up after the exhausting World Cup. They are coming to this game as underdogs but we all know that Leicester is the team to produce the biggest surprises.
Leicester: Smeichel – Chilwell – Evans – Morgan – Pereira – Iborra – Ndidi – Albrighton – Maddison – Diabate – Ibeanacho

Manchester United – Leicester: Prediction
When these two teams met last time out it produced a great contest with 4 goals and ended up in a draw. Now things shouldn’t be different because it’s the start of a new season and every time are trying to find the best playing style for their team and the best formations. Manchester United are the favorites in this one with big chances to win this, but in my opinion Leicester should score at least once. The hosts conceded a goal in every game from their last 4 and it shouldn’t be such a big task for Leicester to find a net in this one as well.
Prediction: Both Teams To Score, Yes, Odds: 2.10
