Premier League prediction: Manchester United look to lay down marker against Leicester

Manchester United kick-started their ‘project’ last weekend with a home win against Premier League strugglers Queens Park Rangers.

Red Devils manager Louis van Gaal was quick to proclaim his personal desire to deliver the title to the fans and hailed a ‘new start’ after the win, stating that his side can do much better than they’ve done so far.

Realistically though they still have much to prove, having won only one game so far this season after losing on the opening day at home to Swansea City. While Angel di Maria looks to have settled into his rhythm already with a goal and multiple assists, all eyes will still be on the latest additions to the team.

Daley Blind looks at home in the centre while Radamel Falcao also looked good coming off the bench but it will all come down to how well Van Gaal can implement his philosophy of football with the incredible squad at his disposal.

But whilst Van Gaal goes about trying to create history at Old Trafford, Nigel Pearson will be imploring his side to forget about it, as the Leicester have lost the last nine matches played against United.

The Foxes will be the third and final team promoted from the Championship that United will have faced this season so if Rooney and Co. come away with anything less than three points, reaching the top four could become a lot harder once they start facing tougher teams week in week out.

New starts and Championship promises from Louis van Gaal might have come a few games early but we’ll give United the benefit of the doubt and say Manchester United 3 - Leicester 0
