Our match prediction:
Leicester City did remarkably well to win the Premier League trophy last season, but the fans are hungry for more success. The club chiefs managed to keep hold of their key players and, no doubt, the Foxes are capable of beating Manchester United in the Community Shield. The Red Devils, on the other hand, failed to finish the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign in top four, but they saved the season by beating Crystal Palace in the FA Cup final. New coach Jose Mourinho is certainly capable of bringing glory days back to Old Trafford and seeing that the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan joined the club in the summer window, we predict that the Red Devils are going to find the net in Sunday’s football clash against Leicester City. The two teams seem to be evenly matched at the moment and, taking everything into account, a close encounter appears on the cards.
Highligted Player (Vardy):
Spending his early career playing no-league football, Jamie Vardy made the headlines when he joined Leicester City in a £1 million deal in 2012, but little did he know that he would go on to become a genuine Premier League star just three years later. The experienced forward helped the Foxes gain promotion to the elite division and then score more than 20 goals as they mounted an unlikely title bid, earning worldwide acclaim as well as a place in the England squad. Vardy went on to score his first two goals for the Three Lions in March 2016 friendlies, with his back-heel goal against Germany in Berlin seeing him instantly become a fans’ favourite. Over the years, Vardy has earned a reputation as a striker who never gives up and can be a real menace for opposition defenders, but his excellent goalscoring record and good link-up play are enough to suggest he can be described as a mix of old-style pacey forwards and modern strikers.
Highlighted Team (Manchester United):
Over the years Manchester United have established themselves as one of the greatest clubs in world football. The Red Devils have won three European Cup (Champions League) trophies and they have clinched no less than 20 Premier League titles. A number of top-class players were part of Manchester United in the past, but, no doubt, the club’s biggest legend is coach Sir Alex Ferguson, who was in charge of the team for 26 years. During Alex Ferguson’s spell at Old Trafford the club won a number of trophies, but the Red Devils have been struggling in all competitions ever since he retired. Louis van Gaal helped Manchester United win the FA Cup trophy in the 2015/2016 season, with Jese Lingard scoring the winner in the 2-1 triumph over Crystal Palace at Wembley Stadium. The likes of Bobby Charlton, Paul Scholes, Roy Keane, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo, George Best and Eric Cantona are the football stars that graced Old Trafford for Manchester United.
