Should Manchester United be concerned with hard fixtures coming up?

Manchester United’s upcoming fixtures are a topic of discussion. The fixtures are a topic of discussion because of how difficult they are. It is also a topic of discussion because of how bad Manchester United’s results were against the lesser teams. Manchester United drew with Everton and Southampton. Dropping points to lesser teams is horrible because the top six teams have played each other. This article looks at whether the fixtures coming up should be a cause for concern.

Manchester United haven’t done well in the lesser fixtures

Manchester United has dropped points this season to Everton, Southampton, and Aston Villa. If Manchester United can’t get up for those fixtures, they don’t deserve to win the league. The gap to the top will increase if Manchester United doesn’t win most of their games against more stern opposition.

Manchester United can still improve

Manchester United’s new signings will improve as the season goes along. They will improve as they will get more used to one another. When they get used to one another, they will know each other’s strengthens and weaknesses. Another reason why United can improve is that Ole and the coaching staff are working on tactics in training. Solskjaer insists that his coaching staff are working on the club’s style of play at Carrington.

United didn’t fear well last season against top six

Last season Manchester United didn’t do well against the top 6. In the ten games they played against the top 6, they won 2, drew 5, and lost 3. The record against the top 6 is horrific as they drew 0-0 in so many of those fixtures. Manchester United hit a low point in the 1-6 loss at home to Spurs because it put doubt in Ole’s mind. What makes the record so bizarre is that in the 19/20 season, they did well against the top 6. The 13 times Premier League champions won five times against their ‘rivals’, in the 2019/20 season including both games against Chelsea and City.

The club has star quality

Manchester United has an abundance of quality in their squad and starting eleven. Ronaldo is one of the greatest players to play the game, Varane will bolster the defence and Sancho is one of the best prospects in world football. The squad before the signings already consisted of Pogba, Bruno, Luke Shaw, and Greenwood, to name a few. This star quality means that United shouldn’t be too fearful of any team in the Premier League.


The Red Devils should be concerned with the upcoming fixtures because of the poor start to the season. If Manchester United started the season adequately, they would head into a tough run of fixtures confident. Dropping points in straightforward fixtures puts them under more pressure in games against better opposition. This set of games between October and November will define how the season will go for United and for Ole too.
