Premier League fixtures: Manchester United have chance for fast start

SoccerNews in English Premier League 14 Jun 2017


Manchester United have an opportunity to make a fast start to the Premier League season after their 2017-18 fixtures were announced on Wednesday.

Having finished a disappointing sixth last season, Jose Mourinho’s men will want to make a strong statement that they can compete for the title this time around and their opening fixtures do not look overly daunting.

West Ham, Swansea City, Leicester City, Stoke City, Everton, Southampton and Crystal Palace are their first seven opponents, with four of those games – including the toughest against Ronald Koeman’s Toffees – coming at home.

Things get more difficult from October, with Liverpool (away), Tottenham (home) and champions Chelsea (away) pencilled in as three of their subsequent four fixtures, the only likely respite in that span coming with a trip to Huddersfield Town.

There are back-to-back games against Arsenal (away) and Manchester City (home) on December 2 and December 9 respectively, while their away games against Everton and Spurs come in January.

If United are in title contention at the end of the season, there could be a tense finish in store, with the away game against Pep Guardiola’s City (April 7) and a home match against Arsenal (April 28) both coming inside their final six games.

The campaign ends with a home game against Watford on May 13.
