Manchester United will be debuting in the Premier League today where Jose Mourinho, Manchester United’s manager, will be having a headache to find a good starting Xl where many of the senior and regular starters didn’t participate in the preseason due to the participation in the world cup.
When and where is the match?:
When: The match will be on Friday, August 10, at 8:00 PM BST.
Where: Old Trafford (Home)
Who will play?
Jose Mourinho will play a very similar squad to the one that played against Real Madrid int he International Champions Cup, preseason friendly match, due to the absence of several key players like Nemanja Matic and Romelu Lukaku.
We expect the following starting 11:
Goalkeeper: David De Gea
Defenders: Matteo Darmian, Erick Bailey, Victor Lindelof, and Luke Shaw.
Midfielders: Paul Pogba, Andreas Pereira, and Fred Rodrigues
Forward: Juan Mata, Alexis Sanchez, and Marcus Rashford.
Manchester United has to win today, no matter what, in order to gain three valuable points at the beginning of the Premier League title race. However, we expect a tough win for the Red Devils 2-1 where Alexis Sanchez will score first.
Manchester United have lost only three matches to Leicester City at home, Old Trafford, out of 44 matches.
