Manchester United Premier League Fixtures 2019-20
*Fixtures and Timings can change depending on the development of the season and how much progress each team makes in different domestic and European competitions.
Matchday 1: Manchester United vs Chelsea – Old Trafford
There can hardly be a tougher start for either team. The first match is always the most difficult match to start with. The players have just ended pre season but not yet properly into the groove of the new season.
The tackles flying in are usually late, the strikers are not taking enough chances and the general mistake rate in the games are high. Hence, to face a top six side in the first match might mean that there can be a certain unpredictability in the match result.
Matchday 7: Manchester United vs Arsenal – Old Trafford
It is being reported that United are on the verge of signing a deal for Harry Maguire, but even with the Englishman in the team, it will not be easy to stop Unai Emery’s men from breaking into their goal.
Arsenal already had a hard attack to face in Aubameyang and Lacazette but now with the addition of Nicolas Pepe in their side, the Gunners will be swinging hard every match and the big occasion of playing at Old Trafford will mean that United will have to put every foot right.
Matchday 9: Manchester United vs Liverpool – Old Trafford
This is the biggest home match of the season, as Liverpool still remains their enemy number one on the pitch.
The Reds have done brilliantly well last season and will want to dismantle United at Old Trafford this season to prove a point or two. However, Ole will take heart from how his team blocked out Liverpool last season and will want to go one better by securing a big win against their rivals!
Matchday 15: Manchester United vs Tottenham Hotspur – Old Trafford
The new entrants of the top six are Tottenham Hotspur. They have strengthened significantly over the last few years under Mauricio Pochettino.
Now with new signings and a new stadium under their belt, Tottenham will be raring to go again and prove a point. They made it to the final of the UEFA Champions League last season but the team failed to win silverware, raising questions on their ability to deliver on the big stage.
Well what can be a bigger statement than to deliver three points at Old Trafford. This means United will have to extremely careful of Kane and company who will know that a win at a rivals’ big stadium will do them some much needed good.
Matchday 16: Manchester City vs Manchester United – Etihad Stadium
It is no easy task to face the champions of the previous two seasons. Pep Guardiola, once again has done it. He has delivered a team that can win titles at a brisk pace while dismantling opponents at the same time. City do not win, they demolish. Their football is eye catching for the crowd, and a horror movie for the rivals on the pitch. United have already been given several tastes of what a Pep Guardiola team can do to them on multiple occasions in the past and Ole will be keen to avoid such a thing from repeating itself.
Guardiola’s men are two time champions, having collected record points on both occasions. This means, City do not drop points unless situations are extremely dire. United will know that.
They will have to not only defend against that but also counter it for their own fans will be expecting a win against the cross town rivals, something they have not enjoyed in a long time. The match being played at the Etihad is bound to make it tougher for United but that is what the Premier League is all about! This will possibly be one of their greatest tests!
*The return leg for each of these fixtures is also set to throw in surprises and tests for United. For example, the return leg against Liverpool which will be played at Anfield, will be their toughest test in terms of mindset.
They were hammered in 45 minutes last time out at Anfield and the Red Devils will have a score to settle at one of the most intimidating stadiums in the world.
Besides this, they will also have to take the London tour, ie they have to visit all three top London sides in Chelsea, Arsenal, and Tottenham Hotspur on top of welcoming Manchester City home towards the flag end of the season!
