Manchester United vs Leicester Prediction & Betting tips
Manchester’s Old Trafford will open the new 2018/2019 Premier League season on Friday. Host Manchester United welcomes guests from Leicester City. And United can kick off! His last three opening matches in England’s top flight class Manchester United could win. Since 1972, and thus in the last 25 seasons, the Red Devils have only lost one match on Matchday 1. With the Foxes also comes a kind of favorite opponent in the theater of dreams. In the opening match between Manchester United and Leicester, Jose Mourinho’s team is a clear favorite for our tip according to betting odds.
Still who? Is there anyone else? Thursday is Deadline Day in England! By 18 clock German time, the teams from the Premier League can still sign players. Although players can still bid as long as the transfer windows in the other leagues are still open, it seems unlikely that significant sales will be made if no accesses are reported on Thursday. At Manchester United, personalities like Harry Maguire and Toby Alderweireld have been whizzing through the corridors for days and weeks. Jerome Boateng, on the other hand, has given Manchester United a basket. Whether Jose Mourinho gets another defender or even a player on the final day may be doubted. If not, then it is unlikely that stars like Paul Pogba, on which the FC Barcelona is tuned, will leave the club. So far Manchester United can only record the additions of Fred (Shakhtyor Donzek), Diogo Dalot (FC Porto) and substitute keeper Lee Grant (Stoke City). Too little for Mourinho, under whom the atmosphere in the team in the preparation should have been very bad.
The International Champions Cup, which Mourinho almost despised, scored a penalty shoot-out win over AC Milan and a 2-1 win over Real Madrid. In between, there was a 1: 4 swatter on a trip to the USA, which Mourinho “absolutely nothing” has brought. In the last test in preparation Manchester United lost against FC Bayern 0-1. Some people already say that Mourinho, with his bad mood and inappropriate statements towards his new father Anthony Martial, provokes his expulsion, but at least wants to justify some bad results in the Premier League in advance.
It has almost been an eternity that Leicester City became sensational and ten points ahead of Arsenal English champions. It was in the season 2015/2016 and is thus not so long away. Since this triumph Leicester played but not too big role in the Premier League. In the year one after the championship Leicester was twelfth, in the preseason then at least ninth. The most important pillars in the club could be kept largely despite the championship title. But this summer left with Riyad Mahrez towards Manchester City an absolute key player the club. Center-forward Ahmed Musa has also said goodbye to Saudi Arabia (Al-Nasr Riyadh). On the other hand, the Foxes beat James Maddison (Norwich City), Ricardo Pereira (FC Porto), goalkeeper Danny Ward (Liverpool) and Rachid Ghezzal (Monaco). The transfer of Freiburg’s Caglar Söyüncü is near completion, which could clear the way for a transfer of Harry Maguire to the upcoming opponent Manchester United.
The last Premier League season ends Leicester with only one win on the last seven matchdays. In addition to another draw, there were five defeats. For one, games involving Leicester in the last season were always good – goals. A total of 116 goals fell when Leicester stood on the court. That’s an average of 3.1 goals per game. Only in the games of Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool fell more hits. The preparation for the new season was mixed for Leicester. The foxes started and finished the preparations with wins against Notts County (4: 1) and finally Lille (2: 1). In between, there was a defeat against Udinese (1: 2) and two draws against Akhisar Belediyespor (0: 0) and Valencia (1: 1).
