Man United’s fixtures
After a very lacklustre 2018/19, Manchester United should be keen to start afresh in the forthcoming season.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first preseason as Man United boss kicks off on Saturday the 13th of July against Perth Glory.
United must then face Leeds, Inter Milan, Tottenham, Kristiansund and AC Milan as they prepare for the new season.
The Red Devils’ 2019/20 Premier League campaign will then begin on August 11th vs Frank Lampard’s Chelsea.
Solskjaer’s side then take on Wolves, Crystal Palace and Southampton in their remaining August outings.

As mentioned above, United’s first game of their preseason is against Perth.
The Red Devils are currently in Perth, and Solskjaer has on Wednesday spoke to the media about a number of things.
One of the topics discussed was the fitness of Alexis Sanchez.
Sanchez was injured 17 minutes into Chile’s Copa America third-place play-off loss to Argentina on the 6th of July.
However, OGS seems optimistic that that injury shouldn’t hamper Sanchez when he returns to Man United:
“I don’t think Alexis’s injury was too bad.
“When he’s due back is three weeks after his last game, so that will be just after we come back from tour. I would expect him to be fit enough to play straightaway and train straightaway.” As quoted by the Mirror.
After scoring just one goal in 20 PL appearances last season, Sanchez will be hoping for a much better start to the 2019/20 campaign.
