Manchester United started the new season with a run of less difficult fixtures as they are still yet to play any big six sides this season, with already five games played. As October and November draw nearer, fans are beginning to speculate that the crucial fixtures in these two months could define the Manchester United season.
Despite some recent flaws in previous matches, Manchester United has made considerable progress under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer but this coming month will be the ultimate test of their Premier League title-winning credentials.
Manchester United will be playing all the Big Five teams between October 24th - November 30th.
24th October - Liverpool(H)
Manchester United is very good at playing Liverpool at Old Trafford, the red devils have only suffered one defeat against them in their last three home meetings, whilst winning one and drawing the other. Jurgen Klopp's side is looking strong this season and when they get to face Manchester on the 24th of October, it will all come down to who wants to win the match the most.
30th October - Tottenham(A)
Tottenham and Manchester United aren't that much of a rival. A win for Ole Gunnar will surely be expected from the fans.
6th November - Man City (H)
Manchester United has shown Manchester City in their last recent meetings that they are better than them. Ole Gunnar has a strong record over Guardiola, winning three and drawing one of their five Premier League clashes.
After the Manchester derby, the following weeks present one of the easiest back-to-back fixtures of the season for United as they travel to Watford on the 20th of November before playing Villareal in the Uefa Champions League on the 23rd of November.
27th November - Chelsea (A)
Chelsea looks like a different team since Thomas Tuchel's appointment, and now they even look better as the blues have conceded only one goal this season in all competition. This will be a very tough one for United.
30th November - Arsenal (H)
While the game against Arsenal may not seem as difficult given Gunner's struggles in recent games, Manchester United will still find the Arsenal game somewhat difficult. Manchester United has failed to beat the North Londoners in the league since their emphatic 3-1 win at the Emirates in December 2017.
Despite the tough fixtures along the way, there is a belief among the United fanbase that the Reds can make a statement by not losing to any of the big six teams.
