Manchester United has all the intention to dethrone Leicester City and become Premier League champions once again.

The rest of Saturday's fixtures will feature matches between Burnley and Swansea, Crystal Palace against West Brom, Everton meets Tottenham, Middlesbrough plays Stoke City, Southampton faces Watford and Manchester City versus Sunderland.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed Manchester City as the favorite to be crowned as the 2016-17 Premier League champions.
