Man Utd VS Leicester

Manchester United and Leicester City meet at Old Trafford, in a match for the 1st round of the Premier League. At this stadium, the head‑to‑head history favours the home team, since they have a record of 3 wins and 1 draw in the last 4 matches. Sure enough, the last time these teams met at this stadium, on 26‑08‑2017, in a match for the Premier League, Manchester United won by (2‑0). The goals of the match were scored by M. Rashford (70' ) and M. Fellaini (82' ) for Manchester United.

Analysis of Manchester United

The home team makes its debut in this edition of the competition, after having finished 2nd last season. They come to this match after a away loss against Bayern München by (1‑0). Manchester United has won 6, tied 2 and lost 2 of the last 10 home matches. They haven't been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 7 of the last 10 matches. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 8 times and have only turned the score around in 2.

Manchester United comes for the new season with a single goal, to finish in a better position or better than the current championship. We remember that the Red Devils finished in 2nd place, but far from the Manchester City championship. In this first match counting for the Premier League, the coach Jose Mourinho must play in the usual 4-3-3 benefiting from ball possession and the organized attacks, being Juan Mata the main organizer and creator of the offensive process. It seems the new 10 Rashford jersey should occupy the most advanced position of the team. For this time Manchester United hired Fred and Diogo Dalot. Matic, Valencia, Diogo Dalot and Rojo are absent due to injury, while Lingard, Young, Pogba and Jones are in doubt for this opening day.

Confirmed Lineup: David de Gea, E. Bailly, M. Darmian, V. Lindelöf, L. Shaw, Mata, Fred, Andreas Pereira, P. Pogba, M. Rashford, A. Sánchez.
Coach: O. Solskjær.

Analysis of Leicester City

The away team makes its debut in this edition of the competition, after having finished 9th last season. In their last match, for the Club Friendlies, they got an away win against Lille by (1‑2). In the last 10 away matches Leicester City has won 5 and lost 5. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 matches. In their away matches there is a tendency for goals, since 21 of the last 24 matches have ended with Over 1,5 goals and 17 out of 24 have ended with Over 2,5 goals.

After the title reached in the 2015/2016 season, Leicester '' went down to the ground '' and won two secured positions in the following championships. In this championship, the Foxes aim to guarantee the maintenance as soon as possible. In this away match, the coach Claude Puel must play in 4-2-3-1, benefiting the defensive organization and the offensive balls, especially for Ihenacho: this player is very fast and excellent at finishing. Ricardo Pereira, James Maddison and Ghezzal were some of Leicester's great acquisitions for this season. It seems that the coach has Jamie Vardy and Maguire in doubt, players who were in the 2018 World Cup.

Confirmed Lineup: K. Schmeichel, W. Morgan, H. Maguire, B. Chilwell, Ricardo Pereira, D. Amartey, J. Maddison, D. Gray, Adrien Silva, W. Ndidi, K. Iheanacho.

Betting suggestion:

In recent years Manchester United have managed to beat Leicester with some ease, having scored four wins in the last five matches at their stadium. In addition, the two teams are going through different realities in English football, meaning that the home team will fight for the top positions of the league table and the visiting team for maintenance. Given this and also taking into account the difference of the two teams, risking the Manchester United’s victory seems to have great value.
