Man United v Leicester City confirmed lineups – £19m summer signing misses out

Caglar Soyuncu

The 2018/19 Premier League season kicks off tonight with Manchester United vs Leicester.

The clash takes place at Old Trafford while kick-off is scheduled for 20:00 (GMT).

Leicester City’s £19 million summer signing Caglar Soyuncu completed his move to the Foxes on deadline day, however, is unavailable for tonight’s clash.

The 22-year-old picked up a muscle injury during pre-season training. Despite recovering, Caglar will need to get up to speed with first-team training at Leicester City.

Leicester boss Claud Puel is unable to call upon Matty James tonight while Evans and Vardy start on the bench.

Man United meanwhile are without Dalot, Matic, Rojo and Valencia due to injuries. Star striker Lukaku starts tonight’s encounter as a substitute.

France international Paul Pogba starts for United tonight and will be wearing the captain’s armband.
