In the early hours of Sunday we see the impressive Manchester United team take on the Premiers from two seasons ago Leicester City. Man UTD have looked very good in their two games to date whilst the Foxes will want to bounce back from a poor season last year.
When: Sunday, August 27, 2.30am (AEST)
Where: Old Trafford, Manchester
Man Utd’s all-round game has put teams on notice so early on.
Paul Pogba has started exactly how you would want him to and Nemanja Matic has added strength.
Goals and threats in the final third are coming from all directions and defensively they aren’t conceding, so pretty complete at this time.
No doubt that will be tested more but so far they’ve answered any questions thrown at them.
Leicester have started off playing with the fire and energy that they enjoyed so much two years ago.
Big ask here but if you continue to have Jamie Vardy, Riyad Mahrez and Shinji Okazaki asking questions then Man Utd will be working here.
The Foxes will look dangerous at times but should be worked over defensively which will be too much in the end.
KEY BATTLE: Romelu Lukaku v Shinji Okazaki
Battle of the strikers and both in form and scoring.
Lukaku should benefit from more opportunities at home and can increase his goal tally.
Okazaki has had a great start and is two from two, so will keep United’s defenders on their toes.
Man Utd seem to be rampant at the moment but they’re playing a team who has started the season well.
I do expect Man Utd to be too strong at home but they’ll need to continue in the form they have been in and not get sloppy.
If they do, Leicester can do some damage.
