Man Utd fans in meltdown after Premier League fixtures confirm Chelsea on opening day | Football | Sport


The Premier League fixtures for the 2019-20 season were announced on Thursday morning and United will kick off their campaign when they welcome Chelsea to Old Trafford on Sunday, August 11 (4:30pm kick-off).

After a disappointing end to last season that saw them finish sixth in the Premier League and miss out on Champions League football, United are looking to revamp their struggling squad.

However, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has only managed to finalise the signing of winger Daniel James from Swansea so far.

And a section of fans are worried that they are not ready to face a one of their closest rivals.

One said on Twitter: “After the announcement of the staring 10 fixtures of the PL season, isn’t it time now for Woodward to get up and actually grow a pair, buy some players…

“A LOT OF PLAYERS as there are too many not good enough. That should be the focus now.”

United also face Wolves, Crystal Palace and Southampton in August.

And another fan made a pretty grim prediction for the opening month of 2919-20.

They said: “0 points Chelsea. 0 points wolves. 1 point Palace. 0 points Southampton. Bottom of league after the 1st month. Mark my words.”

Another added: “Looking through the fixtures & one thing is certain. Man Utd will finish 6th.”

One supporter agreed: “Shock @ManUtd are up against @ChelseaFC for the first game of the season. – we’re going to lose the opening fixture of the season. I’m already tired.

A fourth added: Can see @ManUtd losing first two games. Chelsea and Wolves will batter us! #mufc

Quoting a post from United’s official account, another said: “‘The reds begin the campaign by hosting our top-six rivals Chelsea.’

“Manchester United no longer challenging for titles and happy to accept they are challenging for top 6. Pathetic.”
