Louis van Gaal begins his time at Old Trafford with a home fixture against Swansea City and will not face a side who finished in the top four until nine games into their season
Unlike many of their rivals, United will not face a side who finished in the top four last term until their ninth game of the campaign which is a home fixture against Chelsea on October 25. That is then followed by a trip to Manchester City the following week.
In a match which could alter the outcome of the title race, United host Arsenal in their penultimate game of the season on May 16.
