November will be ways for the Red Devils as they only face West Brom, Watford and Leicester. The busy festive period is also a bit polite to the club but they will end the year with a game against the champions of the previous season at home. The New Year will see United travel to Anfield in the 3rd game of the reverse fixtures. They will end January with a game against Southampton at home. By this time the fans will get an idea of the position the club might finish in at the end of the season.
February: 2nd Stoke City (H) ; 6th Chelsea (A) ; 13th Sunderland (A) ; 27th Arsenal (H)
March: 1st Watford (H) ; 5th West Bromwich Albion (A) ; 12th Crystal Palace (H) ; 19th Manchester City (A)

May: 7th Norwich City (A) ; 15th Bournemouth (H)
February is again a tricky month for United as they face Chelsea at the Bridge on 6th and then welcome Arsenal on the 27th. March starts easy for the club but will end with the away leg of the Manchester Derby which may well decide who will be the more successful of the Manchester clubs in the season. They play Everton and Tottenham back to back in the beginning of April but the last 5 fixtures are relatively easy and may assist a late charge by the club.
It must be said that United have a slightly tricky list but with the depth in the squad, they may well come out on the top. They will start the season as favorites for the title but the manager will have to work hard if he wants to bring the trophy back to Old Trafford after a bit of a gap.
