2017/18 English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 26th August 2017
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Old Trafford (Manchester).
The early message from Manchester United
camp is that they are the team to beat for
Premier League title this season. The Red
Devils started the season with back-to-back 4-0
wins. Despite West Ham and Swansea not
being the toughest of the opponents in
Premier League, the magnitude of the win
give United confidence and momentum to kick
start a season in search of titles. On top of
that, there are positives in all departments of
play, not just restricted to few players like Paul
Pogba and Lukaku.
Leicester lost 4-3 to Arsenal on matchday 1,
but got over the disappointment with a 2-0
home win against Brighton. Their squad depth
was put to test in the league cup match against
Sheffied United this midweek. The like of
Islam Slimani, Ahmed Musa and Demarai Gray
made full use of the opportunity by putting
their names in the scoresheet in the 4-1 win.
This is a team playing with confidence and the
fearless attitude that won them the title a
season ago is back with them.
