The English Premier League is finally back, with the 2018-19 season set to kick off on Friday evening.

This season will kickstart with Manchester United hosting Leicester City at Old Trafford, in what is billed to be a very exciting game.

The Red Devils will be missing majority of their first team players, due to either injury or their involvement in the World Cup.

The likes of Nemanja Matic, Phil Jones and Luke Shaw are nursing injuries, whiles Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard and Romelu Lukaku are unlikely to feature after only reporting to camp some days ago.

However, Jose Mourinho is expected to produce a side that would be capable of getting the three points over the Foxes.

On Saturday, more games will follow, with Tottenham travelling to Tyneside to take on Newcastle United in an early kick off game.

Spurs remain the only Premier League side not to have made a signing during the just-ended window, but still boast an impressive squad.

Newcastle will definitely prove tough customers, having also bolstered their squad with a few new names, but Mauricio Pochettino’s side should stand tall in the end.

London-based Chelsea will also be visiting Huddersfield Town, in what is expected to be a tricky test. The Blues are in a transition period, with Maurizio Sarri being tasked to implanted an attacking brand of football at Stamford Bridge.

However, getting results will be key if he is to stay for long and it must begin with three points against Huddersfield on Saturday.

On Sunday, Liverpool also welcome West Ham United to Anfield, as Jurgen Klopp’s side look to mount a real title charge.

The Reds have made some massive signings and finally look like real contenders for the title, however, the Hammers have always proved to be tough customers.

Liverpool, though, will start the game as favourites and should be able to pick the maximum points.

Pep Guardiola’s side beat the Gunners home and away last season, but with Unai Emery at the helm now, this could be a different proposition all together.

Perhaps a draw will be a fair result for both teams, City are undoubtedly the favourites.
