Manchester United’s key 16/17 Premier League fixtures

It is undeniabley going to be a massive season for Manchester United.

With their new man Jose Mourinho in charge they will look to really mount a title challenge once again after two and a half seasons of mediocrity under David Moyes and Louis van Gaal.

With this we will see the return of one of the great manager rivalries in world football; Guardiola vs Mourinho. In what will be a hotly contested Manchester Derby, with both sides gunning for the Premier League trophy, Mourinho will definitely have one eye on the Man City game.

Jose will also see a return to his old stomping ground, Stamford Bridge. In what promises to be a controversial affair, Jose will want to get one of over on his previous employers.

The Liverpool game is also a big one for the Red Devils, and Mourinho will be meticulously planning to make sure they walk away with the bragging rights.
