Manchester United vs Leicester City : Manchester United and Leicester City will step out on the Old Trafford turf for the opening round of the 2018/19 Premier League season, slightly burdened by the success of the England national football team in the previous summer’s World Cup. Both clubs have England internationals who went on an extended dalliance in Russia and have only recently returned from their holidays. Certainly, Jose Mourinho has got his excuses in early.

Manchester United are finally back in competitive action on Friday, hosting one-time champions Leicester City (yes, that really happened) at Old Trafford in the Premier League season opener. José Mourinho has been moaning all summer about not having a full strength squad with which to work (pesky World Cup!), and as miserable as he is, he has a point. At least six players will be missing from the squad today with injuries, and core members of the team like Romelu Lukaku and Paul Pogba may only start from the bench due to a lack of match fitness.
Leicester have World Cup hangover issues of their own, as once and future United target Harry Maguire, as well as racist abuser Jamie Vardy, among those who have only recently returned to training. Claude Puel’s team make for tricky first opponents, and United fans will be hoping that an underwhelming pre-season was not a sign of things to come.
