Pallister and Heskey give their ultimate Man United and Leicester XI

| 06.08.2016

There’s been plenty of debate over who will shine in the FA Community Shield supported by McDonalds as last season’s heroic underdogs Leicester City face Jose Mourinho’s imposing new Manchester United at Wembley on Sunday.

Four-time Premier League winner Gary Pallister and England legend Emile Heskey combined to produce an ultimate XI from the two sides’ players at the launch of Ladbrokes’ partnership as the official betting partner of the FA.

So, who made the cut? Did De Gea or Schmeichel end up between the sticks? Is there a place for Ibrahimovic? Does Morgan get a mention? And has Rooney made the cut? Watch Pally and Heskey take you through their ideal XI to find out…


Manchester United are 17/20 favourites for victory, with 18/5 for Leicester to produce yet another underdog victory, and it’s 13/5 for a draw.
