Erik ten Hag’s first assignment as a Manchester United manager in the Premier League will be a home game against Brighton and Hove Albion on Sunday, August 7.

A trip to Brentford will follow in the eventual gameweek before the Red Devils play their first big match of the season against Liverpool on August 20. The action-packed month of August will see United playing as many as five matches. Of those five games, only two will be played at home in Old Trafford.

After what was a rather abysmal season where United finished with their lowest points tally of the Premier League era, the record Premier League champions’ first 10 league matches include trips to Leicester, Everton and a visit of Arsenal.

As such, ten Haag needs to brace himself for what will be one of the toughest starts for Man United in the league, as they face three of Premier League’s ‘Big Five’ in their first nine matches itself.

After hosting Liverpool on August 20, the team will entertain Arsenal on September 3 followed by a trip to the Etihad for the first Manchester derby of the Premier League 2022-23 season on October 1.

The month of October is, in fact, going to be a tough run for Man United. Starting off with an away match against Man City, ten Haag’s men are scheduled to play Everton, Newcastle United, Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and West Ham United in quick succession. 

The second Manchester derby will be played on January 14 followed by an away match against Arsenal on January 21.

For the second time in the season, Manchester United will face Newcastle, Everton, Chelsea and Tottenham in the same month, this time in April before concluding their campaign on May 28 against Fulham.
