Man Utd on the road first but face delay to Premier League start

Date published: Thursday 20th August 2020 9:26

Manchester United have been handed a trip to Burnley in their opening game after the 2020-21 Premier League fixtures were announced.

The Red Devils’ clash with Sean Dyche’s men was due to take place on the weekend on September 12 but will be rearranged, due to their late involvement in the Europa League.

United will then host Crystal Palace on September 19 before heading to Brighton a week later.

Manchester derbies slated for December 12 (Old Trafford) and March 6 (Etihad) are subject to change for TV coverage.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men will travel to Leicester on Boxing Day, while the New Year’s fixture will see them host Aston Villa.

The final game of the season on May 23 sees them make a tough trip to Wolves.
