Manchester United kick off their Premier League campaign with a home fixture against West Ham United on August 12.
The start of the season is relatively kind to Jose Mourinho’s team whose first big test comes when they visit huge rivals Liverpool on October 14.
The first Manchester derby is on December 8 when City visit Old Trafford.
When’s their trickiest run?
United have a favourable start but then face Liverpool (Oct 14) and Chelsea (Nov 4) on the road with the visit of Spurs sandwiched in between.
When can they pick up the most points?
Jose Mourinho will be hoping to be top of the Premier League come the end of September given their opening seven fixtures – West Ham (H), Swansea (A), Leicester (H), Stoke (A), Everton (H), Southampton (A) and Crystal Palace (H).
What’s their run-in like?
They start April at Man City but after that they will fancy their chances of picking up points at the business end, especially as they sign off away at Brighton and then at home to Watford.
Who have they got after European weeks?
They are at home following four of the six Champions League group fixtures, but they also travel to Chelsea following matchday four, and Jose is sure to find reason to moan about that.
What one fixture will the fans be looking forward to the most?
They could well travel to Liverpool on October 14 as league leaders given their easy start, and that is something they would certainly enjoy crowing about.

Directions to Old Trafford by CAR
From the South:
Leave the M6 motorway at Junction 19 taking the A556 towards Altrincham. This leads onto the A56 to Manchester. Follow the A56 for about six miles and look for Sir Matt Busby Way on your left. The ground lies about 400 metres down Sir Matt Busby way although on matchdays this road is closed to all cars without parking permits.
(See tips on where to park below).
From the North:
Leave the M6 at Junction 30. Then take the M61 towards Bolton. As you reach the end of the M61, join the M63. Leave the M63 at Junction 4 and take the A5081 to Manchester. Follow the A5081 for two miles and look out for Sir Matt Busby Way on your right hand side. The ground lies about 400 metres down Sir Matt Busby way although on matchdays this road is closed to all cars without parking permits. (See tips on where to park below).
From The West:
Follow the M56 to its end, taking the M60 (W&N). Leave M60 at junction 7, taking the A56 towards Stretford. After 2 miles you will see Sir Matt Busby Way on your left. The ground lies about 400 metres down Sir Matt Busby way although on matchdays this road is closed to all cars without parking permits. (See tips on where to park below).
There are plenty of small private car parks near to Old Trafford, but they tend to fill up pretty early. Old Trafford Cricket Ground (cost £5) does a roaring trade on match days but again, you need to arrive at least an hour, and preferably 2 hours before the match to make sure of getting a space. If you arrive later than that try parking at the Salford Quays Lowry Mall, a ten minute walk away from the stadium, which costs £3. There’s much less traffic on leaving, and the road takes you straight onto the M601 which joins up with the M62/M6. This can be helpful as it avoids the worst of the traffic taking the direct but slower route South.
By TRAIN to Old Trafford, Manchester
Probably the best way to get to Old Trafford is by train from Manchester Piccadilly mainline station, as the stadium has its own railway station next to the ground, located immediately outside the away end. To book train tickets and check train times to Old Trafford:
