2014-15 fixtures: United face easy start

Louis van GaalManchester United will open their Premier League campaign against Swansea on August 16th at Old Trafford, before facing Sunderland and newly-promoted Burnley away in consecutive weeks and will end their campaign away at Hull. Louis Van Gaal will face his first big test as Manchester United manager on October 25th as the Reds host Chelsea, before traveling across town to face City the following week, with a trip to the Emirates three weeks after that. United host Liverpool on December 13, while the festive period sees them at home against Newcastle on Boxing Day, away at Spurs on December 28th and away at Stoke on New Year’s Day.

In the second half of the season United travel to Anfield on March 21st, before hosting City on April 11th and traveling to Stamford Bridge the following week, while United host Arsenal in their final home game of the season, sandwiched in between trip to Selhurst Park and the KC Stadium. United have won 14 of their 22 opening games in the Premier League era and got off to a winning start last season with a 4-1 win away at Swansea proving to be the falsest of false dawns for David Moyes in his inaugural season at Old Trafford. Here’s hoping Van Gaal steers United back to the top!
