Manchester United play host to Leicester City on Saturday evening having recorded successive 4-0 victories in their opening two fixtures in the Premier League.
The Foxes travel to Old Trafford having began the campaign in relatively solid fashion, but it will be a tough ask for Craig Shakespeare’s side to gain a positive result at the top-flight leaders.
United earned mixed reviews for how they performed in pre-season but Jose Mourinho and his players have shown that not too much should be taken from friendly fixtures which are generally used for fitness and to bed in new signings.
Simply put, United have been juggernauts in their first two matches. Boosted by the additons of Nemanja Matic and Romelu Lukaku, the North-West outfit look a completely different unit in comparison to the previous campaign and on this form, you cannot bet against them at least putting up a strong challenge for the league title.
Leicester spent each moment of last season very much in the spotlight after their Premier League title triumph and exploits in the Champions League, but a return to some kind of normality can only benefit Shakespeare and his players.
The Foxes will always hold the tag of the former league champions but they now need to begin the next chapter and look to claim a top-10 position in the standings in May or have a run in a cup competition, both of which are more realistic expectations than causing the biggest surprise in the history of English football.
Barring any late fitness issues, Mourinho is expected to select the same starting lineup for the third successive match.
Victor Lindelof, Herrera and Anthony Martial are waiting in the wings, but the Portuguese is unlikely to tinker with a winning team.
Jamie Vardy will start after shaking up a minor issue picked up in the closing stages of the Brighton match.
Manchester United possible starting lineup:
De Gea, Valencia, Bailly, Jones, Blind, Matic, Pogba, Mata, Mkhitaryan, Rashford, Lukaku
Leicester City possible starting lineup:
Schmeichel, Simpson, Morgan, Maguire, Fuchs, Albrighton, James, Ndidi, Mahrez, Okazaki, Vard
Admin Prediction:Manchester United have started the season on the front foot. I am expecting an exciting match with Romelu Lukaku scoring 2 goals. Manchester United 3-1 Leicester City
