The Red Devils Manchester United will host Leeds United in the opening match of the Premier League on August 14.
Manchester United has become more and more stable in recent seasons, and the team was just one step away from the title in both the league and UEFA Cup last season.
Manchester United made a lot of actions in the summer window, spending heavily to strengthen their squad.
In addition to retaining the main framework from last season, the team brought in young star Sancho from Borussia Dortmund, and Vanella from Real Madrid. This shows that the Red Devils’ current strength is even stronger.
Manchester United’s pre-season warm-up games were average, with 2 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss, which is directly related to some of the main players not participating in the game.
The game is the first game of the season for the Red Devils, before the game manager Solskjaer announced a list of 21 people.
Goalkeepers: De Gea, Tom Heaton, Lee Grant.
Defenders: Diogo Dallo, Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Lindelof, Brendan Williams, Luke Shaw.
Midfielders: Andreas Pereira, Fred, McTomine, Van Der Beek, Martial, Pogba, Mata, Fernandes.
Forwards: Daniel James, Greenwood, Sancho, Martial.
Leeds United is the one who stormed into the Premier League last season. The team finished 9th in the league after a season of struggle. Leeds United can be said to be the biggest dark horse last season.
Leeds United also made changes to their squad during the summer window, bringing in midfielders Harrison (Manchester City), Firpo (Barcelona) and Klaasen (Valerenga), and also sending some of the fringe players away, further optimizing the squad.
Leeds United’s pre-season preparation has been very active. A total of seven warm-up games were played, but the results were not good, with one win, two draws and four losses, including a defeat to lowly League 1 side Fleetwood.
Although it was a practice match, it was still a bit demoralizing. From the recent warm-up games, Leeds United’s current squad has a lot of teething problems and needs further improvement on both the offensive and defensive ends. The next step will depend on the ability of manager Bielsa.
In the past encounters between the two teams, Manchester United has won 5, drawn 3 and lost 2 of the last 10 matches against Leeds United.
In the recent situation, Manchester United’s summer window reinforcements are not small, the team’s strength has been further strengthened. While Leeds United, although the off-season reinforcements are also very much, but the warm-up effect is not satisfactory, continuous failure to win is still a bit hurt morale.
Combined with the current strength and status of both sides, Manchester United is still expected to win the season opener.
