Paul Lambert with last season's top scorer Christian Benteke

Paul Lambert's men go to the Emirates first up, before hosting Liverpool in the first home game of the new campaign.

A trip to Jose Mourinho's Chelsea follows, before a home match with Newcastle.

Newly-promoted Crystal Palace are the visitors on Boxing Day, while there is a trip to Sunderland on New Year's Day.

The last six games see them host Fulham (April 5), Southampton (April 19) and Hull (May 3) with trips to Palace (April 12), Swansea (April 26) and - on the final day of the season - Spurs (May 11).

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
