All eyes will be on Manchester United and Jose Mourinho this weekend when they take on Leicester City in the official curtain raiser clash of the season. The two teams will fight for the Community Shield trophy with United looking to make an early statement.
They have spent ample amount of money to experience a meager season. With Paul Pogba’s 100m capture they have been made the early favorites for the title as well. Although Pogba will not play in the community shield but his arrival is imminent.
With likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan signed this summer Mourinho needs to quickly know his best playing XI and shape his best formation ahead of the new season. After last season’s turn of events both United and Mourinho will be eager to get back in to their winning ways and it starts from the Community Shield game this weekend.
Despite the lack of preparation, there will be no excuses left for Mourinho to turn to if his team loses against Leicester City. The reigning Premier League Champions have already lost N’Golo Kante and there are uncertainties over the future of Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez as well.
One cannot expect them to be in a good mindset specially after getting thumped 4-1 by PSG and losing 3-2 against Barcelona earlier this week. United’s season could well be defined by the game at Wembley which will be the first real test of this new look side under a brand new manager. Let’s see how this might affect the match highlights odds from William Hill page on the upcoming Man Utd vs. Leicester match this 7th of August.
