The Premier League is back with a bang on Friday night as Manchester United host Leicester City at Old Trafford.

It has been a strange summer for United and their manager, Jose Mourinho, who appears to have fallen out with club officials and players alike.

Leicester have lost Riyad Mahrez to Manchester City over the break, but have held onto Harry Maguire, whilst Jamie Vardy has signed a new contract with the club.

The Red Devils are the clear favourites to win this one, but the Foxes will be confident of springing a surprise at the Theatre of Dreams.

Team news

Both teams must make a decision on whether to include their World Cup stars who are not injured, but may be lacking match fitness after an extended break.

Mourinho will be considering whether to include the likes of Ashley Young, Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford, whilst Leicester boss Claude Puel will be assessing Maguire and Vardy.

Otherwise, Leicester have no injury worries, but the same cant be said for United who will be without Antonio Valencia, Marcos Rojo, Diogo Dalot, Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic.
