Man Utd’s overall fixture list for the Premier League season looks fairly forgiving, with just one instance of facing back-to-back clashes against classic top-four opponents. This happens in December when they meet Arsenal a week before the Manchester derby.
The Red Devils ease into the season with four fixture passing before having to face their first top-10 finisher from the 2016-17 term in Everton, and finding their first top-four finisher in Liverpool eight games in.
Man Utd fuel Rooney exit talk
Big things are expected from Jose Mourinho in his second season at the helm, with qualification for Champions League football likely a must as the club continue to spend heavily in the transfer market.
Failure to finish in the top four would surely see confidence in the Portuguese drop, while the club’s fans and board will undoubtedly expect something resembling a title push from the off.
With City, Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham all looking strong and making their own additions over the summer, however, much will rest on their ability to replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic as the club’s leading scorer this season.
