Bury were also relegated from League One and are at home to Chesterfield, while Southend United are at home to Plymouth Argyle.

Torquay United and AFC Wimbledon both survived by the skin of their teeth last season and clash at Plainmoor, while Wycombe Wanderers are at home to Morecambe.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
