Fixture list released: Manchester derby dates set

Date published: Wednesday 15th June 2016 9:17

In the most underwhelming start to any Manchester United manager’s reign, Jose Mourinho’s tenure will begin at Bournemouth on the opening weekend of the Premier League season.

Mourinho’s first home game will be against Southampton on the weekend of August 20 but the first real humdinger comes on September 10 with his first Manchester derby at Old Trafford; the return fixture is on February 25.

Other notable fixtures are a visit to Anfield on October 16 and his first return to Stamford Bridge a week later.

Boxing Day brings a home fixture against Sunderland while the May run-in features clashes with Arsenal, Tottenham and Crystal Palace.

Obviously any and all fixtures may be moved for reasons of television.
