Man Utd v Leicester: Preview

The new Premier League season kicks off on Friday the 10th of August, with Man Utd hosting Leicester City at Old Trafford for the first game followed by Newcastle v Spurs on Saturday.

Bookmakers offer Man Utd as the favourites, and José Mourinho‘s men will be determined to win their opening clash, and start off strong in their bid to improve on las seasons 2nd place finish.

Check out bookmakers best Premier League odds for 2018-19 to see the teams they think are most likely to be crowned Champions at the end of the season.

Leicester lost 3 out of their 4 last Premier League matches last season and so Claude Puel’s squad will surely face a tough match playing Man Utd at Old Trafford.

In fact, Leicester haven’t managed to beat Man Utd in any of their previous 8 meetings, and facing Man Utd in their first game isn’t the opening match they would have hoped for.

Man Utd v Leicester is being shown live on SkySports at 8pm on Friday August 10th, and in the lead up to the game, we've looked into both team’s current form and bookmakers best odds.

Man Utd come into the new 2018-19 Premier League season with some new faces in their squad following a reasonably active summer transfer window.

One of the biggest names to join Jose Mourinho’s team is Brazilian Fred, while Diogo Dalot has also moved to the club from FC Porto and Lee Grant has joined from Stoke.

There have also been some players leaving, with Michael Carrick retiring, while Joe Riley, Dean Henderson, Sam Johnstone and Daley Blind have also moved to other clubs.

While bookmakers best odds have Man Utd as favourites, they also have a pretty easy run of early fixtures, giving them the opportunity for a great start to their Premier League campaign.

Their first 8 matches of the 2018-19 Premier League are against lower ranked teams, with the only difficult opponent in Spurs, who finished in 3rd place last season.

As one of British Bookmakers odds on favourites to win this seasons competition, a victory against Leicester would give the squad a boost after an average pre-season tour in the States.

Leicester on the other hand, who were the shock Premier League champions in 2015-16, only managed to finish 9th last season and have struggled to replicate the success.

Their track record against Man Utd isn’t that great either, with only 2 wins from the last 19 Premier league fixtures against Mourinho’s men.

This is a huge match for their season opener, and there will be a lot of pressure on Puel’s men, especially after they lost 4-3 to Arsenal in last season’s opening match.

Puel has also brought some new talent to the Leicester squad during the transfer window, with Ricardo Pereira, Jonny Evans, James Maddison and Danny Ward all joining.

Elliott Moore, Connor Wood and Riyad Mahrez have all moved on with Mahrez probably the biggest loss having joined Man Utd's closest rivals, Man City.

It’s easy to see why bookmakers best odds suggest Man Utd are clear favourites to win, and Leicester will surely struggle against one of the stronger teams in the competition.

In saying that, Mourinho’s men didn’t have an amazing pre-season in the States, and if they aren’t playing as well as they started last season, Leicester could get something from the match.
