On paper the Red Devils sound like difficult opposition. If Jose Mourinho is to be trusted, however, all of their squad is some mixture of bad, injured or somehow still at the World Cup. United are in bad form, having finished the transfer window just 7th in net spend so they look a little on the ropes to me.

Leicester City Team News:
The Foxes have a number of concerns already this season, but so far only midfielders Nampalys Mendy and Matty James are definitely out, with neither likely to start anyway. Jamie Vardy and Harry Maguire are also not expected to feature, according to Claude Puel, while Jonny Evans will face a late fitness test. James Maddison and Adrien Silva both took knocks in the final friendly, but will be fully fit and ready today. New signings Filip Benkoviç and Çaglar Söyüncü won't be available either.
Manchester United Team News:
United will definitely be without a couple of first teasers of their own in Nemanja Matic and Antonio Valencia, who are both out injured along with Ander Herrera, Sergio Romero, Diego Dalot and Marcos Rojo. Eric Bailly is expected to be fit again, and there are some doubts over their cadre of World Cup semi finalists and finalists, including Romelu Lukaku, Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard, Ashley Young, Paul Pogba and Marouane Fellaini.
Leicester City: Maguire starts! My prediction was off though, Amartey and Gray start with Albrighton riding the bench. No Diabaté at all.
