Manchester United have learned their schedule for the upcoming 2021/22 Premier League campaign today.
The Red Devils finished second last season, 12 points behind rivals Manchester City, and they will be looking to improve on that finish in the upcoming campaign.
The new season will get underway on August 14, with the Red Devils welcoming rivals Leeds United to Old Trafford.
They face tough runs in October, November and March, especially when Champions League group games are factored into the equation.
United make the trip to face Leicester on October 16, with a Champions League group game following on either October 19 or 20.
They then host Liverpool on October 23, before travelling to Tottenham on October 30 and playing another game in Europe on either November 2 or 3.
A Manchester derby clash at Old Trafford follows on November 6, before a brief break ahead of another tough run.
Following their November 20 trip to Watford, United have another Champions League group game on November 23 or 24, a trip to European champions Chelsea on November 27 and a game against Arsenal three days later.

"Who did we offend for getting that type of fixtures on October and November", wrote another.
"October and November is going to define our season…" surmised one supporter. "If we don't sign our first choice targets in this window then we could be out of the title race in November…Winnable First 5 fixtures expecting nothing less than 15 points".
