Starting XI: Manchester United v Leicester City – Premier League 2 2016/17

Manchester United’s U21 Premier League champions start their season tonight at home against Leicester City. Last season, United fought off the challenge of Sunderland to retain the trophy they won a year ago in style. Warren Joyce’s side showed that they were capable of  beating the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City to the top spot, both of which did not have the greatest ever of seasons. United will be looking to get a good start in the Premier League 2, a new format in the competition where players under the age of 23 can compete, including an overage goalkeeper and up to three overage outfield players. United will be without a striker for much of the new season, with both James Wilson and Will Keane set to be sold on, or be sent out on loan. In the Lancashire Senior Cup at the start of the month, United utilised Scott McTominay as a striker, which could be something which is seen for much of the season coming. Here are the starting XI’s and lists of substitutes for both teams this evening.

Manchester United:

Johnstone;

Riley, Poole, Tuanzebe, Borthwick-Jackson;

Redmond, Willock;

Olosunde, Harrop, Kehinde;

Weir

Substitutes:

Henderson; Whelan, Scott, Tanner, Mitchell

Leicester City:

Iversen,

De Late, E. Moore, L. Moore, Wood;

Kaputska, Inler, James, Lawrence;

Mitchell, Muskwe

Substitutes:

Johnson, Bramley, Miles, Barnes, Ndukwu
