United's 2018/19 Premier League fixtures

Thursday 14 June 2018 09:00

Manchester United's fixtures for the 2018/19 Premier League season have been announced.

The Reds kick off the season at home to Leicester City on 11 August. It's the first time we've met the Foxes on the opening weekend since 15 August 1998, when a late David Beckham free-kick rescued a 2-2 draw at Old Trafford at the start of the Treble-winning season – and, of course, we mark the 20th anniversary of that historic campaign in 2018/19.

United's first away game is against Brighton & Hove Albion on 18 August and our first encounter with one of the newly promoted teams is a 22 September home clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The Manchester derbies take place on 10 November (away) and 16 March (home), while Jose Mourinho's men face Liverpool on 15 December (away) and 23 February (home).

During the Christmas period, United host Huddersfield Town on Boxing Day and Bournemouth on 29 December, and visit Newcastle United on New Year's Day. And we end the campaign against Cardiff City at Old Trafford on 12 May.
