Man Utd opens the season against Crystal Palace

Manchester United will open the new 2020-2021 season with a game against Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on Sat, Sept. 19th at 10 am ET. Then the Red Devils goes away to Brighton Hove & Albion on Sat, Sept. 26th, at 10 am ET.

United will then be at home against Tottenham Hotspur on Sat, Oct. 3 at 10 am ET. I think that the first three fixtures are all winnable and I would expect us to get maximum points from them. Although Man Utd has had a long history of starting a bit slow out of the blocks. The Newcastle game is up after the Spurs game, and that’s at St. James’s Park.

If the Bella Nova group is successful in their takeover of Newcastle United, and they are able to attract some top quality players to the club along with an excellent manager then this could be a tougher match than we would anticipated. United then has big home games against both Chelsea and Arsenal. Those two fixtures will certainly be tougher than the first four matches for Man Utd.

Its imperative that we get off to a great start by winning our first six fixtures. If not, then we shouldn’t lose any of the first six games. Five wins and a draw will be fine too, because you don’t want to lose too many points very early in the season. We would find ourselves quickly trailing the likes of Liverpool, Manchester City, and Chelsea and we would be at a disadvantage and this could come back to haunt us later on in the season.
