Manchester United will be looking to continue their impressive start to the season when they face Leicester City at old Trafford on Saturday.

Following consecutive 4 -0 wins, many are already touting Manchester United for the title off the back of a solid defence, a bewitching attack and eye catching new signings.

The good news for United is they have no new injuries and so Mourinho will be able to call upon the same players who have started the last two matches. However, after scoring in his two cameo appearances, Anthony Martial will certainly be vying for start in this game.

Leicester City meanwhile have had a steady start to the season, pushing Arsenal all the way to the end in their 3-4 defeat, but  then comfortably defeating Premier League newcomers Brighton 2-0, with new signing Harry Maguire getting on the scoresheet.

Unfortunately they have far more injury problems than United, Robert Huth, Vicente iborra are still out, and Maguire is a doubt after suffering a knee problem.

However there is some good news, Jamie Vardy and Wes Morgan may be fit after incurring injuries against Brighton. In addition Danny Drinkwater and Kelechi Iheanacho all trained fully for the first time this week.

Whilst we must acknowledge man united’s ominous start to the new season, we have to also remember they won their first 3 games last season, only for them to finish a disappointing 6th place. They undoubtedly look stronger and more balanced his year, but they are up against a strong and dangerous Leicester city side, who showed against arsenal just how capable they can be against tough opposition.
