Man Utd: 2021/22 season preview

Manchester United will begin their bid for a first Premier League title since 2013 when they take on Leeds in their first game of the new season on Saturday.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will know the pressure is firmly on his shoulders to deliver silverware in the near future following the arrival of Jadon Sancho and imminent signing of Raphael Varane.

And he will be desperate to start positively with three points against the Red Devils’ cross-Pennines rivals Leeds.

This same fixture finished 6-2 to the home side last year, and neutrals will be hoping there is just as much entertainment this time around at Old Trafford.

Here is everything you need to know ahead of the game…

The hotly-anticipated match kicks off at 12.30pm on Saturday August 14.

Those attending will have to comply with new guidelines set out by the Premier League.

In a statement released on Monday, fans going to games should be prepared to show they have been fully vaccinated or have received a negative lateral flow test in the previous 48 hours.

Random spot-checks are set to be in place and supporters must follow a new ‘supporter code of conduct.









This includes wearing masks indoors, avoiding close contact and following one-way systems.
