The Premier League returned with a slow start rather than a big bang at Old Trafford on Friday as Jose Mourinho’s men carved out a 2-1 win over Leicester City. World Cup winner Paul Pogba’s 3rd minute goal and Luke Shaw’s 83rd minute strike was enough to hand Mourinho 3 points to start his 3rd campaign as Manchester United manager.
English Premier League
The English Premier League kicks off on August 10th at the Theatre Of Dreams, with many time champions Manchester United hosting former champions Leicester City. Jose Mourinho is keen on silencing his critics, especially his noisy neighbors, while Claude Puel is ‘hell bent’ on stamping his mark on the Foxes. Leicester City will bow into action for the second consecutive time on a opening Friday fixture after losing to Arsenal in a 4-3 thriller last season.

A never ending beef
It is not surprising that one of the most watched and glamorous sports in the world produced a rivalry with all the elements to make it the key component of a Hollywood movie. It’s not difficult to see why either – in the space of a few years the story saw friends turned into bitter enemies and there is never a 'kiss and make up' to end the rivalry.
