The Manchester United vs. Leicester match will be played on Friday, August 10, at the Old Trafford, Manchester. This is the opening game of English Premier League 2018/19 season.


  • Manchester United won only two out of their last seven games in all competitions. In the last friendly match they played before the start of the season, they were defeated against Bayern Munich by 1:0.
  • Leicester was defeated only once in their last five games. In six out of the last seven games we saw over 2.5 goals.


In their last ten games, Manchester United recorded six victories, Leicester had one win, while three matches ended in a draw. In six out of those ten games both teams scored at least one goal.


Manchester United failed to complete a transfer of any player during a deadline day, which was the first time since Jose Mourinho came to the club. Their most significant acquisition was Fred from Shakthar Donetsk, but many of their players, including Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial are reportedly unhappy at the club and they wanted to be transferred during the summer. They both stayed for now, and it will be interesting to see the behavior of these players in the start of the season.
