Here we go again...
Today the 2021/22 Premier League fixture list was published with United handed a home tie against West Ham United on the opening day.
The season kicks off on the 14th August and will finish with the usual final Sunday round of fixtures on the 22nd May, all being well.
A run of fixtures in December looks particularly tricky with a sequence of Leicester, Liverpool, Manchester United and Manchester City all likely to make for a miserable Christmas period before a trip to Everton and then the long trip to Southampton for the New Years Day game.
We will also have to hope that Bruce and his men are not in desperate search of points at the end of the season too, with Liverpool, Manchester City and Arsenal all part of our run in before a final league game of the season away to Burnley.
At least we'll have the FA Cup Final to look forward to, won't we!!
