Preview: United v Leicester | The Real Business Begins

Leicester City, on the other hand, have had a decent transfer market where they bought some exciting youngsters and an experienced defender in Jonny Evans. Ricardo Periera offers threat down their right wing from the wingback position. James Madisson is a huge talent signed from the Championship side Norwich City. The usual suspects like Harry Maguire, Jamie Vardy will all be a threat. But, they’ve sold Riyadh Mahrez to Manchester City. That could be blow but they have got enough players to slot in for him like Demarai Gray and another new addition in Rachid Ghezzal. Tactically, Mourinho could experiment a little bit. He’s been using a 3 at the back system which was successful in Pre Season. But, due to the shortage of players he has at the moment, he may prefer a more straightforward 4-2-3-1 with Fred and Andreas in the double pivot. But it could be a 4-3-3 if Paul Pogba is passed fit. Leicester City could play a 3 at the back with Harry Maguire and Jonny Evans as part of it. Jamie Vardy is a doubt but is expected to play some part. Players to watch out for: Manchester United: Andreas Periera could be like a new signing for Jose Mourinho. He brings qualities which Jose likes very much. Distributing balls from the deep is that quality. And for the pre season he’s had, it’s fully justified that he must start. Leicester City: James Maddison is an incredibly exciting young prospect. Says a lot about him when he was said to be interesting the top 6 clubs like Spurs, Chelsea and Manchester United.
