This season is going to be defined by a potential for a fast start, if we can get past the tricky opening hurdles.
The opening game against Chelsea is a corker. It’s also a must win. We face Wolves away a week later, and need to head there confident with three points in the bag already.
After those two games the schedule looks good. There is no reason why we should not have a target to win five of the opening six games.
The game everybody looks for, at home to Liverpool, is in mid-October right after the international break.
December starts off tough with City and Tottenham with some tricky away fixtures mixed in.
The end to the season see games against City and Tottenham in the final few weeks.
The last few games do not look too bad, against mid-table sides, and are all winnable providing we are in a good position.
After the Tottenham game in March, United could even target winning eight in a row. Of course we are being over optimistic, but it’s ok to do that at this time of year.
Now, let’s get on with signing more players to make these games that little bit easier…
