The new season of the English Premier League kicks off at the Theatre of Dreams as Manchester United host Leicester City in the first match of the new league season. The battle between the two former PL champions promises to be a thrilling affair as club football action officially returns and will set the tone for the coming season.

Manchester United, led by manager Jose Mourinho, finished second last season and will look to get off to a flying start in their pursuit of a 14th Premier League crown. All has not been well in pre-season as Mourinho has often bemoaned the lack of transfer activity at the club but it can all be put aside should United start positively against the Foxes.

Leicester, who were the surprise champions in the 2015/16 season, will be hoping to do better than they did last season when they barely managed to secure a top-half finish. With new manager Claude Puel at the helm and United’s transfer target Harry Maguire set to start, the match will be a treat for fans.
