Fixtures revealed

United will kick off the 2010/11 Barclays Premier League season against newly-promoted Newcastle at Old Trafford on the opening weekend.



If you believe in omens then it's good news - the Reds have twice started campaigns against the Magpies in the Premier League era, in 2000/01 (won 2-0), and 2008/09 (1-1), and on both occasions have gone on to win the title.

There are the usual tricky patches, of course, with back-to-back clashes against Arsenal and Chelsea twice - in December (11, 18) and in the run-in (30 April, 7 May).

The last ten fixtures of the campaign look like producing plenty of fireworks with away trips to Anfield, Upton Park, St James' Park, the Emirates Stadium and Ewood Park, with home games against Everton and Chelsea thrown in too. But, enough talk, here are the 2010/11 fixtures:

Sat Aug 14 Newcastle United H
Sat Aug 21 Fulham A
Sat Aug 28 West Ham United H
Sat Sep 11 Everton A
Sat Sep 18 Liverpool H
Sat Sep 25 Bolton Wanderers A
Sat Oct 2 Sunderland A
