Jürgen Klopp and Liverpool will aim to put a disappointing 2022/23 season behind them.

Manchester United’s first five 2023/24 Premier League games compared to Man City and rivals – Manchester Evening News

The countdown to the start of the 2023-24 Premier League campaign has officially begun.

The new season begins in just six weeks when newly promoted Burnley take on reigning Premier League champions Manchester City on Friday 11 August. Seventy-two hours later, it’s Manchester United’s turn to take the stage for the first time.

Erik ten Hag’s side will start their 2023/24 season against Wolves at Old Trafford on Monday 14 August. It marks the start of the Dutchman’s second season at the helm and he hopes to build on the progress made last season. .

Ten Hag has already set United’s target to battle for the top two after finishing third in his first season in charge, meaning they have work to do to try and bridge the gap with both Manchester City and Arsenal . The Reds’ downfall last season, of course, was that they played catch-up from the start, losing each of their first two games.

That said, they will be determined to get off to a better start this time. And with that in mind, MEN Sports has taken a close look at United’s first five games of 2023-24 and compared them to those of the clubs they are expected to compete with in the coming season.

Manchester United:

  • Wolves (H) – August 14
  • Tottenham Hotspur (A) – August 19
  • Nottingham Forest (H) – August 26
  • Arsenal (A) – Sept. 2
  • Brighton & Hove Albion (H) – Sept 16

Pronunciation: With three home games in their first five, United will be determined to get off to a good start. Old Trafford was turned into a fortress again in Ten Hag’s first season in charge and it’s been almost a year since the Reds were last beaten on their home pitch in the league.

Along the way, however, United face two very rigorous tests, traveling to North London in two weeks to face Spurs and Arsenal. Their results against top teams on the road last season simply weren’t good enough and that’s a problem they need to fix as soon as possible.
