EPL MATCHDAY 3: RED DEVILS WELCOME FOXES, EVERTON VISIT STAMORD BRIDGE

MANCHESTER UTD V LEICESTER CITY

It is cool to say Leicester could bring on the form which got them through the Carabol EFL cup fourth round to this game holding at Old Trafford, but that is not too sweet to say as Mourinho’s men have all reasons to win again. After beating Westham and Swansea in the seasoning opener, scoring 8 goals and conceding none in the process, I think the Red Devils are the team to beat at the moment. Meanwhile, the red half of Manchester just secured another one year deal for Zlatan! So, the giant is back.

The Foxes have lost in their last six competitive trips to the Old Trafford and history may just repeat itself on Saturday evening.

Verdict: MANUTD 3-1 LEICESTER

 

CHELSEA V EVERTON

After getting sent off alongside Captain Gary Cahill in the season opener against Burnley, Cesc Fabregas now gets the nod to start against the Blue Merseyside on Sunday afternoon, giving Teimoue Bakayoko the chance to continue his recovery.

The Champions will most probably line up in the usual 3-4-3 formation to Everton.

Meanwhile, the Toffees have gotten their hands dirtied in the transfer window, securing new and quality players, some for now, and some for the future. Thanks to new billionaire owners. The newest recruit is former Swans, Gylfi Sigurdsson who helped the his new side secured a place in the Europa League group stages in a playoff with Hajduk Split.

However, with the high quality additions at the Goodison Park, the toffees are yet to make a “statement performance” in the premier league so far. The new recruits are still gelling with one another.

Everton might be able to climb out of their seventh place island, but they are not there yet.

They will prove a difficult, but beatable opponent for Antonio Conte’s men.

Verdict: CHELSEA 3-1 EVERTON
