Man Utd to start at Swansea

Manchester United will start the 2013/14 season away to Swansea City in a tricky opening run of fixtures for last term's Premier League champions.

New manager David Moyes takes his team to the Liberty Stadium on 17 August just a few days after a United select XI will meet Swansea in a testimonial for Alan Tate.

United then welcome Chelsea to Old Trafford in Moyes' first competitive home match in charge before travelling to old rivals Liverpool before August is over.

The first Manchester derby of the season comes at the Etihad Stadium on 21 September, which is the fifth game of the campaign, while the Red Devils tackle north London duo Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur in November.

Moyes will face his former club Everton for the first time at home on 3 December, with the return visit to Goodison Park scheduled for 19 April.

The Christmas period sees United travel to promoted Hull City on Boxing Day and Norwich City two days later, before welcoming Tottenham on New Year's Day.

March opens with the second Manchester derby and United will also tackle Liverpool at home that month.

The season concludes with a trip to Southampton on the final day, which is preceded by home games against Norwich and Sunderland.

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

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.

Wenger hails important win

I

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.
