Super Eagles duo of Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho will be hoping to cause Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho an early heartbreak as Leicester City seek to overcome the Red Devils at Old Trafford in tonight’s (Friday) Premier League kickoff.
Having featured prominently in City’s pre-season friendly matches, scoring two goals in his last two games, Iheanacho knows a good start for him could help seal a regular shirt this season.
Ndidi has also remained an integral part of the Foxes since joining two seasons ago and is expected to pilot the affairs of the midfield.
This is only the second time in English Football League history that the top-flight season has kicked off on a Friday, and Leicester have been involved both times. The other occasion was last season when Leicester lost 3-4 at Arsenal.
The last time Man Utd and Leicester City met on the opening weekend of a Premier League campaign was back in 1998-99, with Man Utd coming back from 0-2 behind to draw 2-2 at Old Trafford.
