United were runners-up last season, their best placement since winning the title in 2013, but still finished a whopping 19 points behind champions Manchester City.

A trophyless season—United were knocked out of the Champions League by Sevilla and lost the FA Cup final to Chelsea—was followed by a very frustrating summer, which saw United fail to address their issues.

Having signed Brazil midfielder Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk and right-back Diogo Dalot for a combined $93.8 million in June, United then added former Stoke City goalkeeper Lee Grant as a back-up to David De Gea and Sergio Romero.

With Manchester City signing Riyad Mahrez for a club-record fee and Liverpool spending north of $210 million on Alisson, Fabinho, Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri, there is a feeling United have stood still.

Mourinho certainly feels so and the Portuguese has not tried to hide his frustration, indicating he had given a lengthy list of targets to the club at the beginning of the summer, none of which have materialized.

Mourinho's frustration, however, has led to speculation his typical third season meltdown could be underway. Throughout his career, the Portuguese has never stayed at the same club for longer than three seasons, often leaving in acrimonious circumstances.

The 55-year-old extended his three-year deal with United by a further 12 months last season, but has given the impression of a man who doesn't feel backed by the club.

"The other clubs that compete with us are really strong or they have already fantastic squads like Chelsea, Spurs, City, or they are investing massively like for example Liverpool buying everything and everybody," Mourinho told MUTV earlier this week.

"If we don't make our team better it will be a difficult season for us."

Leicester, on the other hand, arrive at Old Trafford in a different frame of mind. The Foxes have lost Mahrez but retained Jamie Vardy and Maguire and have added Norwich attacking midfielder James Maddison for $29 million. Right-back Ricardo Pereira and right winger Rachid Ghezzal have joined from Porto and Monaco respectively for a combined $41.7 million and Jonny Evans' arrival from West Bromwich Albion will add experience to the defense.

"We lost Riyad Mahrez, who was a very good player for us," Leicester manager Claude Puel was quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

"After Riyad it was important to keep our players and add some good players to strengthen the team."

United won 2-0 in the corresponding fixture last season thanks to goals from Marcus Rashford and Marouane Fellaini, but conceded a late equalizer away at Leicester as Maguire's header earned the Foxes a 2-2 draw.
