United then travel to Newcastle before back-to-back clashes against European rivals Chelsea and Arsenal, both at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils were initially set to face Burnley away in the Premier League curtain-raiser but their Europa League commitments mean the game has been postponed to a later date.

United fans will need to wait until December 12 before facing noisy neighbours Man City.

The traditional Boxing Day fixture sees United travel to Leicester and the New Year clash at home to Aston Villa.

And United’s last fixture in the first half of the season will come against fierce rivals Liverpool at Anfield on January 16.

Manchester United’s run-in could be crucial come the end of the season and their final game of the campaign is a difficult clash at Wolves.

The Premier League opening day fixtures for 2020-21 have been revealed

But it is the opening run of fixtures that will determine if United have the quality to close the gap on rivals Liverpool and Man City at the top of the league.

Solskjaer’s side head into the campaign third favourites to lift their first title since 2013.

Elsewhere Liverpool will take on newly promoted Leeds, Chelsea travel to Brighton and Arsenal face London rivals Fulham.
