Anyway, United’s league fixtures have now been unveiled and as you can see, the 20-time league winners open their campaign at home to Chelsea – in what is going to be a mouthwatering game to kick things off with.

The first thing that sticks in my mind is that the run-in has been fairly kind. If United can get themselves to the end of March in a decent position, then you’d imagine points aplenty can be picked up from there on out.

The first meeting against Liverpool takes place at Old Trafford in mid-October, while the return fixture will be played in mid-January.

United head to The Etihad at the start of December with the game at home taking place in early March.

All-in-all, I feel we have to be pretty happy with the way things have fallen for United. There doesn’t seem to be any real tricky spells, aside from the end of February to mid-March, but even then you’d fancy us to pick up points…
