Manchester United 2021/22 fixture list reveal – Can Ole Gunnar Solskjaer claim his first title with United?

The Premier League has released the schedule for the 2021-22 season, which begins with Manchester United hosting Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United at Old Trafford.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side had a strong season in 2020-21, the team were placed second in the final standings of the table, they were under Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City side who managed to finish in first place and therefore rightfully claimed the Premier League title. This means that Manchester City has won their third league title in four years. 

The red devils finished the season with 74 points, out of 38 games, the side have claimed 21 victories, drew 11 and lost 6. 

Manchester United appeared to be on the verge of winning their first title under Solskjaer until losing the Europa League final to Villarreal on penalties on 26th May.

However, there is much to be excited about as a Manchester United supporter, and with fresh new signing on the way in the summer transfer window. 

They begin the season at Old Trafford against rivals Leeds United, followed by travels to Southampton and Wolves. In October, a first meeting with arch-rivals Liverpool looms significantly. 

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer new campaign gets underway on Saturday 14th August and the season draws to a close on Sunday 22nd may. You can view Manchester United’s full 2021/2022 fixture list here

In 2020/2021, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his team went unbeaten away throughout the Premier League season. United are the fourth side in English top-flight campaign to achieve this after Preston (1888-89), Arsenal (2001-02) and Arsenal again (2003-2004).

The fans and the team are looking to start strong in the new season and hope to continue the incredible away form. Hopefully with fans slowly being allowed and deployed into the stadium, I’m certain that the squad will love to hear the support of their fans and knowing that they are being cheered on throughout the 2021/2022 Premier League season.

Bruno Fernandes happy to share free-kick duties

The European Championship holders kicked off their bid to retain the trophy by beating Hungary 3-0 in Budapest, with Ronaldo grabbing the headlines with two late goals that make him the leading scorer in the competition’s history.

A Selecao had to wait until the 84th minute to get their noses in front, through a deflected Raphael Guerreiro effort, but soon found their extra gears after that breakthrough.

But while Fernandes is keen to praise the former United no.7, he believes Portugal’s collective unity is the team’s most precious asset; an asset that was embodied by their third goal of the game.

Fixtures 2021/22: United ready to welcome fans

The Reds’ final league game, away to Wolves five days later, was played in front of 4,500 home supporters and there were an estimated 2,000 fans from each club at Stadion Miejski in Gdańsk, Poland when United faced Villarreal in the Europa League final.

Players and coaches alike commented on how positive it was to have crowds back for those last few games of the campaign, even if the numbers who passed through the turnstiles were significantly lower than 73,288 – the attendance figure for United’s last game without restrictions, a brilliant 2-0 win over Manchester City at the Theatre of Dreams on 8 March 2020.

Fans will now be hoping to create a similar atmosphere when Leeds United visit Old Trafford for the opening 2021/22 Premier League fixture on the weekend of 14 or 15 August but any rise in capacity remains dependent on decisions made by the UK government.

WHAT’S HAPPENING TODAY?

Daniel James and Dylan Levitt will be looking to help Wales take a huge step towards qualification for the next round, when they face Turkey in Baku at 17:00 BST. Robert Page’s side drew 1-1 with Switzerland in their tournament opener, but will be up against it in Azerbaijan, with the 30,000-strong crowd at the Olympic Stadium expected to be dominated by Turkish fans.

Although Levitt has yet to feature in this competition, James was one of the Dragons’ stand-out players at the weekend. According to Opta, after the first round of fixures, Dan boasts the fourth-highest average carrying distance of any player in the tournament. He progresses 16.4 metres each time he attempts to run forward while in possession, behind only Ludwig Augustinsson (Sweden), Tymoteusz Puchacz (Poland) and Cengiz Under (Turkey).
