Manchester United vs Leicester City - Premier League Preview and Odds

August 26, 2017 17:30pm - Old Trafford

Premier League

Manchester United will be looking repeat the feat they achieved last year when they won their opening three games of the Premier League campaign. But unlike last time, they will be aiming to maintain that form over the course of the season. Next up for the Reds is a home clash against the 2015/16 champions Leicester City.

United opened their Premier League account with a 4-0 win at home to West Ham United and followed it up with a win away to Swansea City by the same scoreline. Since then they have re-signed Zlatan Ibrahimovich and will heading into this game brimming with confidence.

The Red Devils won their opening three games last term but their performances were far less convincing. This time round, they already look like title contenders. In fact, anything less than a top four finish would be unacceptable considering the amount of money they have spent on new talent since Jose Mourinho`s arrival.

Meanwhile, Leicester City are hoping to give a better account of themselves this term after last year`s disappointing title defence saw them finish 12th in the table. Craig Shakespeare`s men were involved in an opening day thriller against Arsenal but unfortunately came out on the wrong end of a 4-3 scoreline.

Since then, they have got their first points on the board thanks to a 2-0 win at home to new boys Brighton and Hove Albion. And they come into this game on the back of a 4-1 win away to Sheffield United in Wednesday`s League Cup clash.
