Manchester United Football Club have received their fixtures for the upcoming 2016/17 Premier League season, as the build-up to the big kick-off begins. Jose Mourinho’s campaign will begin with an away game, as he takes his side to AFC Bournemouth.
The self-proclaimed Special One will have to wait until the second round of fixtures before his Old Trafford bow, and that game will take place on August 20th, against Southampton.
As a whole, the list itself doesn’t look all that bad on paper. Yes, there are a few tricky points – May doesn’t look easy, as does October.
However, the usual busy periods of December and January have been relatively kind in the grand scheme of things.
A few dates for the diary are 10th September against Manchester City, 14th January at home to Liverpool, with champions Leicester coming to Old Trafford on the 24th September.
