Man United have maintained a superior record over Leicester City, when they usually run out at Old Trafford.
Will Mourinho’s new guys run the show, will Leicester be missing Mahrez? We’re all at the edge of our seats waiting for the new season to get underway. And what better way to start it than on a Friday evening in early August.
Hopefully, the players will be in as finer spirit as the fans.
With World Cup fever still pumping through some of the players veins, will this challenge be enough to bring the star United players to the fore. There’ll no doubt be faced with an enthusiastic Leicester side, but will they be good enough to take advantage of any early Man United weakness?
The opening matches can be as unpredictable as the last couple of matches, in the prem.
Though United come in to this match as firm favourites with most of the bookies.

|Man United to Win|
Man United have beaten Leicester City 64 times out of 126 meetings. Leicester have managed 33 victories against Man United leaving the remaining 29 matches running out as draws.
Leicester last beat Man United back in September of 2014, managing an eye watering BTTS opportunity and a few plus’s, with a 5 – 3 victory. Prior to that Leicester hadn’t beaten Man United since January 1998.
The odds are against Leicester, will Maguire or Vardy play? This is yet to be confirmed. New boy Fred is set to start though Valencia, Matic, Herrera are injured, Leicester begin life without Mahrez.
Will Mourinho prove his critics wrong this evening? He’s a good opportunity, United rarely lose opening matches at Old Trafford.
