Jose Mourinho is steering Manchester United in the right direction.  Season is 2017/18. What a difference just two weeks can make.

Heading into this season, many expected that Manchester City and Chelsea would be battling for the English Premier League title, with Manchester United likely finishing somewhere in the third-fifth range.

After the first two weeks, however, Manchester United has blown the doors off of the league, led by the likes of Lukaku and Pogba. Their side has scored four goals in each of their first two games, while allowing none. Suddenly, thanks to an early stumble from Chelsea, Manchester United has the second best odds to win the league title at 3/1.

Manchester United will be playing in front of their home fans on August 26th as they take on Leicester City.

Leicester City is just two years removed from an English Premier League title, though that year is likely more like a glitch in the matrix. Leicester City has crashed back down to earth and narrowly avoided relegation last season. They put in a great effort against Arsenal in the first game of the season, though ultimately came up short on the road.

With Man Utd playing at Old Trafford, it seems hard to imagine that they will fall to Leicester, especially given the momentum and confidence that they are currently playing with.

Here are the current betting odds for the match:

Man Utd, 1/4
Draw, 19/4
Leicester, 10/1

The correct score odds all heavily skew in Manchester United's favour:

Manchester United 2-0, 11/2
Manchester United 1-0, 13/2
Manchester United 3-0, 7/1
Manchester United 2-1, 9/1
Draw 1-1, 11/1


Manchester United has successfully carried over their momentum from last season, and there are rumors that they will be bringing Zlatan Ibrahimovic back into the fold.

This would leave the club with a superstar line-up that could conceivably compete with the absolute best clubs in the world. This could be a very good year to be a Man Utd fan.

Take Man Utd at home @ 1/4
