Erik ten Hag has discovered who he will be facing in his first Premier League game as Manchester United manager.

The Dutchman was unveiled as Red Devils boss before the 2021/22 campaign had even ended, turning up to watch a dismal final day defeat to Crystal Palace, and will hope things have improved by the time the new campaign starts – with the fixtures now released.

Ten Hag replaces interim boss Ralf Rangnick, who oversaw a woeful end to the season that broke several unwanted records.

United finished with their lowest ever Premier League points tally in a season of few highlights.

Drafting in the revered Ten Hag offers Man United fans some hope for the new campaign.

He comes with a fearsome reputation, having worked wonders at Ajax.

The Red Devils are yet to make their moves in the transfer market, but have been linked to several big names.

Ten Hag wants to bring Barcelona’s Frenkie de Jong to Old Trafford, who worked under him at Ajax, while they are also understood to have made a contract offer to Christian Eriksen.

There have been a few outgoings too, with the likes of Paul Pogba, Juan Mata and Nemanja Matic all leaving on free transfers.

It will be a new-look Man United on the first day of the season when they line-up against Brighton at Old Trafford in the new manager’s first Premier League game in charge.

Fasinatingly, it’s the sixth consecutive campaign that will see the Red Devils begin their fixture list on home soil – the longest current run of any Premier League side.

It will be a baptism of fire for the Dutchman, who’s side will then face Liverpool and Arsenal inside the first five weeks of the new campaign.

They will face rivals Man City for the first time in October, and will play one of the top Boxing Day picks, too, as they take on promoted side Nottingham Forest over Christmas.
