The 2018/19 Premier League season kicks off on Friday evening as Manchester United entertain the 2016 title winners Leicester City.
Pressure is on United manager Jose Mourinho, who has made it clear he is unhappy with the clubs transfer dealings this summer.
The only real addition of note has been Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk, with Lee Grant and Diogo Dalot also joining Old Trafford.
Leicester City may have lost key man Riyad Mahrez to Manchester City, but they have done good business adding the likes of James Maddison and Jonny Evans.
Defender Harry Maguire has been heavily linked with a move to Friday’s opponents and a move could have happened before transfer deadline day.
Manchester United are unbeaten in seven against Leicester City, since an incredible 5-3 defeat back in 2014.
The Red Devils took four points in the two games last year, including a comfortable 2-0 win at Old Trafford, with Marcus Rashford opening the scoring.
Last five Premier League meetings

Rashford has returned early from holiday and is likely to be rewarded with a start on Friday.
Fred should make his debut, however Romelu Lukaku, Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard are unlikely to feature after deep runs in the 2018 World Cup.
Leicester are likely to be without Maguire and Jamie Vardy for the same reason.
New signings Evans and Maddison are doubts, but should start, along with fellow summer addition Ricardo Pereira.
