This Friday, August 10 and Sunday, August 12, the much-anticipated English Premier League starts off with a bang as the two Manchester clubs, United and City, are in action, and where better to get your preview on these fascinating games but JustBet?

The season kicks off at the Theatre of Dreams with the powerful Manchester United hosting Leicester City after which last season's champs Manchester City travel to the Emirates to face the new look Arsenal.

Manchester United and Leicester City are both seeking to start the new season with a good result and that should mean fans are going to get some good football.

United's pre-season preparations have been contentious, to say the least. Manager Jose Mourinho appears to have lost the will to smile, as injuries have mounted, while the club's transfer market activities have been slower than usual which makes Jose one grumpy Portuguese.

His public frustrations have caused some unrest among some of the players and other staff members. Mourinho's mood has not been helped by the fact that star player Paul Pogba did not end his holidays early after helping France to lift the World Cup and there are simmering talks of him wanting to jump ship to join the cast at Barcelona.

With Riyad Mahrez leaving for rival Man City during the summer, Leicester's winning league side of three years ago has now been dismantled. Of that group only, Jamie Vardy and keeper Kasper Schmeichel remain, meaning that they will not have the easiest start to the season away to United. They ended in ninth place last season and struggled badly when visiting the big teams picking up just one point from away fixtures against the top six sides.

This will be the third time Leicester play the opening game of the season and after losing 4-3 to Arsenal last season, they will hope for a change of fortunes against Man United. This will prove a difficult task as United has won eight of their last nine home games in the league.

The JustBet Betting tip? A MANCHESTER UNITED WIN.

The JustBet odds on the match are as follows:

Manchester United to win $1.43, which means that a $1,000 bet would pay $1,430.

Leicester City to win $7.00, which means that a $1,000 bet would pay $7,000.

Odds of a draw, $3.60, which means that a $1,000 bet would pay $3,600.

Odds on the home team (Man United) winning the game 3-1, at full time, $12.50, which means that a $1,000 bet would pay $12,500.

Odds on the away team (Leicester City) winning the game 0-1, at full time, $16.00, which means that a $1,000 bet would pay $16,000.

Odds on the game drawing 1-1 at full time, $7.00, which means that a $1,000 bet would pay $7,000!!!

Now for the BIG one on Sunday at 10:00 am local time, it's the classy defending champions Manchester City travelling to the new look Arsenal and their new coach Unai Emery for a mouth-watering encounter to kick the new season into full gear.

Manchester City won their first trophy of the 2019/19 season last weekend when they easily kicked Chelsea to the curb on their way to winning the FA Community Shield.So dominant were the champs that it would take a very brave punter to bet against them not retaining their title this season.

Unai Emery's first competitive game at Arsenal could not be harder as they have the unfortunate task of going up against Manchester City. Arsenal ended in sixth position last season which was poor by their high standards over two decades, but they hit top form late in the season during a run of five straight home wins to finish the season on a high.

The Gunners fans will not see the familiar face of Arsene Wenger in the dugout on Sunday. Instead they will welcome the former Valencia, Sevilla and PSG boss as their new leader and will hope that this change will have a positive impact that will translate into trophies.

The last time these two giants met was at the beginning of March earlier this year on a snowy evening, a game that marked Pep Guardiola's 100th game in charge of City and they duly secured an emphatic 3-0 over Arsenal. Worryingly for Arsenal, City owned them during the last season, beating them three times by an aggregate score of 9-1. You will truly be entertained by these two English giants this Sunday, relax, kick back and grab your coffee or tea and enjoy the game with JustBet and win with us!!!!!
