It’s a tough start for the champions as they also play Liverpool (H), Stoke (H), Arsenal (A) and Chelsea (H) in their opening five games. The good news is that three of the five matches are home, but to play the three other sides that qualified for the Champions League in your opening five games is brutal, especially when so many players are involved in the World Cup and will have a shortened preseason.

At the end of the match buses will be lined up on Ashton New Road next to the South Stand, to take you back to the city centre, where you can connect onwards or celebrate a win. Based on supporter feedback, stewards will be on hand this season to help manage the queues more effectively at the end of the match.
The new 3.9-mile (6.3km) section of the Metrolink to Droylsden is now open to the general public. It will serve eight new stops:

The line will run under Great Ancoats Street, through Holt Town towards Etihad Campus (Etihad Stadium) and Velopark (National Cycling Centre).
From here, between Clayton and Droylsden the line will run on-street along Ashton New Road and Manchester Road.
