Manchester United vs Leicester – Premier League :The Premier League finally kicks off
With the debut match being played at Old Trafford
With the debut match being played at Old Trafford, with Manchester United hosting Leicester.
Manchester United finished in 2nd place of the Premier League with 81 points conquered, thanks to a record of 25 victories, 6 draws and 7 losses.
In terms of goals, they counted with 68 goals scored and 28 goals conceded, which results on an average of 2.5 goals per match.
Their record at Old Trafford was much better than their record away from home.
José Mourinho’s team has played 6 preparation matches, recording 1 victory, 3 draws and 2 losses.
Leicester finished in 9th place of the league table with 47 points conquered, thanks to a record of 12 victories, 11 draws and 15 losses.
On the goals’ chapter, they counted with 56 goals scored and 60 goals conceded, presenting an average of 3.1 goals per match.
Their record away from home was weaker, winning only 5 of the 19 rounds they’ve played as visitors.
Claude Puel’s team has played 5 friendly matches on this pre-season, recording 2 victories, 2 draws and 1 loss.
Manchester United vs Leicester – Betting Tip and Prediction:
I believe that the side managed by José Mourinho will start in the best possible fashion in the league, getting 3 points against a Leicester that has quality but that lost their best player Mahrez to City.
In front of their own fans, the Red Devils continue to be very strong and they should win with more or less difficulties.
Alongside with the victory of the hosts, I believe that we won’t witness a goalfest, taking into consideration there will be several absent players from this match.
On the side of Leicester, their top goal scorer Jamie Vardy won’t be fit to play, or at least to start, while the Portuguese manager also won’t be able to count with important players such as Lukaku, Pogba, Lingard, and some others.
This aspect has been hindering the goalscoring prowess of the side of Manchester, that has only scored 2 or more goals in 1 of the 6 matches they’ve played on the pre-season.
