After a dream of a start to the Premier League campaign, Jose Mourinho’s side Manchester United are going to host the former Premier League champions Leicester City at Old Trafford on Saturday.
Leicester City have also started their Premier League campaign in a positive manner. Although they have tasted defeat in their first match to Arsenal, they have shown great spirit throughout the game as the London giants were pushed on to the back foot and registered a hard fought win. On the other hand, The Red Devils have been in destructive mood scoring eight goals in their first two games without conceding a single goal. So, this game is definitely going to be the first test for the veteran Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho.
