Quiz: Name United's Starting XI From 98/99 Opening Game Vs Leicester
By Arthur James O'Dea Updated

20 years ago, at the beginning of a season that would find its conclusion in the Camp Nou against Bayern Munich, Manchester United kicked off their Premier League season by welcoming Leicester City to Old Trafford.

At 8:00pm this evening, United and Leicester will do likewise.

Although few can envision Jose Mourinho's Manchester United reaching the same heights as Alex Ferguson's did during that record-breaking season, the symmetry offers reason enough for a quiz; name the starting XI for United on that day.

In game that finished 2-2, Martin O'Neill's Leicester City took an early lead through Emile Heskey. Before United grabbed their two late goals, Tony Cottee had made it 2-0 and the team that would go on to lose the League Cup final 1-0 to Tottenham Hotspur appeared to have picked up an invaluable opening day win.

Given that United's team from this period is so well known, you're going to have to be quick with this quiz. 3 minutes is all you have, and the players' positions is the limit of the details you're getting.

Good luck!
