Manchester United might have won their 13th Premier League title in style last season, with 11 points between them and second placed rivals, City. But this year it might become tougher for the club to emulate such a feat, given it is their first season in the Premier League without their legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson. Stepping into the shoes of the Scot has always been a big responsibility and incoming manager David Moyes would hope to do justice to the position.
The fixtures for the Premier League 2013-14 have been released and the Red Devils kick off their campaign, yet again away from home, this time at the Liberty Stadium – home of Swansea City – on the 17th of August. Michael Laudrup’s side might prove to be formidable opponents on their day, but the following week’s fixture is bound to be a cracker with United hosting Chelsea at Old Trafford on the 24th of August. The encounter with Jose Mourinho’s Blues would be just the beginning of a vehemently competitive series of fixtures with the club due to face Liverpool at Anfield, on the 31st of August.
