Here's Tom Bowles' pick for Manchester United v Leicester.
It’s not been a great pre-season for Manchester United, thanks to Jose Mourinho’s annoyance at Ed Woodward’s tame transfer business and most of their better players being on post-World Cup holidays.
I wouldn’t be surprised if the atmosphere at the club worsens on Friday night.
Mourinho will field a patched-up starting line-up, while it’s also worth remembering that his side dropped points to Burnley, Southampton and West Brom at Old Trafford last season.
Alexis Sanchez to score
Sanchez’s performances have been one of the few positives of United’s pre-season.
The 29-year-old scored in friendlies against AC Milan and Real Madrid, and is full of energy after enjoying his first football-free summer in nine years.
Sanchez’s new hairstyle makes him look like he means business, too, although I appreciate that’s of less significance.
Luke Shaw to be booked
Shaw said during pre-season how determined he was to finally win over Mourinho, but his displays since then have been unimpressive.
The 23-year-old is trying his best, but the quality that convinced the club to shell out £30m for him four years ago seems a long way off.
I can already picture him going all out in a futile attempt to impress his boss, only for it to end with an overzealous or mistimed tackle.
That the two bookings Shaw he received last season both came at home against mid-table clubs only strengthens my line of thinking.
