EPL: Manchester United vs Leicester City

Jose Mourinho's side have acquired three new players during the transfer window - Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant - while their rivals have splashed the cash.

Pep Guardiola's side were imperious past year as they became the first club to break the 100-point barrier.

"I think Man City are favourites once again".

Pep Guardiola has been speaking to the media at his pre-match press conference this afternoon and the new boss has offered a full team news and injury update ahead of the game.

"I just don't see United getting closer to City".

"I told that during pre-season it looked like I was saying something absolutely out of order, something insane, I repeat and maybe tomorrow the reaction is the same: Pre-season hard when you don't have your players to work, as simple as that". Not just because of the harmony they've had since Jurgen Klopp has been there, but also the signings they've done early. Had they not got to the final of the Champions League last season I actually think they could have finished second. Though Tottenham and Arsenal will not make it easy for them, they have enough depth and quality in the squad to overcome their threat.

Manchester United Vs Leicester City
Former Manchester United striker Owen ruled out the Red Devils launching a sustained challenge in the Premier League this season. United may not have played sparkling attacking football, but they were solid at the back with Bailly especially impressive.

"Manchester United, you know the harmony isn't great there, but they've obviously got great players, a great manager".

"You don't really know the team, you don't really know the players, you don't know how they're going to perform from one week to the next".

Newly-promoted Fulham brought in five new players, including Marseille midfielder Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa for a club-record £30m.

"Chelsea with a new manager coming in as well - and I think they'll both be battling it out for fourth".

United kick off their Premier League campaign against Leicester tomorrow night (8pm).
