Manchester United’s nightmare run

Manchester United have had an indifferent start to the 2021/22 Premier League campaign.

Yes, the Red Devils headed into the October international break sat 4th in the league and just two points off top spot.

But, it is worth noting that the sides above them have already had a much tougher fixture schedule, which has seen Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea all face off with each other inside the opening seven games.

Man United, on the other hand, are yet to play a big six side in the league in 2021/22.

However, that is all about to change once the international break runs its course.

When Man United are back in Premier League action on October 16th, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and co. must face a trip to Leicester.

This is followed by a midweek Champions League clash with Atalanta and then a home Premier League tie vs Liverpool on October 20th.

The tough run does not stop there, though, with United then facing Tottenham, Atalanta again, Manchester City, Watford, Villarreal, Chelsea and Arsenal.

Man United likely to be without key duo vs Leicester
