Manchester United Vs Leicester City Preview And Prediction
25/8/2017


Manchester United will host the 2015/16 Premier League Champions Leicester City this weekend and will love to improve on their impressive start to the season.


The Europa League champions have richly fortified the team in the summer which is no doubt why they have gone two games into the season with four million victories.

Leicester City fell to Arsenal in the opening day, a game that registered seven Goals, with three for the foxes, recovering from their loss defeated the newly promoted Brighton and Hove two Nil and will hope to salvage at least a point against the Red Devils at Old Trafford.

Team News

Manchester United
Jose Mourinho's side has received a boost after Zlatan Ibrahimovic is reported to have rejoined the Red Devils on this day but the Swede will not be available for the clash. 

Manchester United, have no new injury concerns with United remain without injured trio Luke Shaw, Ashley Young and Marcos Rojo.

Leicester City
Craig Shakespeare will have a boost too to his squad as Wes Morgan (back) Jamie Vardy (ankle), Danny Drinkwater (thigh) and Papy Mendy (ankle) all return to training.

Harry Maguire will be a notable injury concern for the foxes as they prepare for the clash with the Red Devils this weekend. Maguire picked up a knock to his knee during the League Cup win at Sheffield United on Tuesday and is reported to be minimally fit for the clash at Old Trafford.

Kelechi Iheanacho has also been reported training, but there is no information concerning progress with his toe injury thought Shakespeare has confirmed he is been monitored for progress.

Line up

Having had a great start to the Premier League with the same line up on both occasions, Jose Mourinho will need some shuffle to his side, especially in the Midfield.

Sergio Romero remains an option in the  post, Lindelof also be given his Premier League debut this weekend though Jones still does fine when combined with Eric Bailly in the Back.



Ander Herrera could be given his first start this season and other options will be Carrick and Fellaini for Pogba but all this seem less likely as the United Boss presently loves his squad the way it is.

Prediction

Manchester United will take the win though it isn't going to be another Four nil victory as the first two.

My take :

Manchester United 3-1 Leicester City
