Premier League Manchester United vs Leicester City preview
The 2018/19 English Premier League kicks off on Friday as Manchester United hosts Leicester City at Old Trafford.
The two sides will be hopeful of starting the season with a good result after their pre-season outings. The Red Devils won 2 out of their ICC games but lost woefully to Premier League rivals Liverpool.
In all fairness, Jose Mourinho’s side didn’t have a successful pre-season tour as they managed just 1 win in 90 minutes. They drew their first 3 games, before losing to Liverpool.
United’s only win was against Real Madrid, but they lost their final game against Bayern Munich at Allianz Arena.
