Manchester United start the 2019/20 Premier League season with a clash against Chelsea at Old Trafford this afternoon. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be pitted against Frank Lampard in his first competitive match as manager of the London club. Both Lampard and Solskjaer will be seeking to start the season on a high. United has a good record from opening games in the Premier League.

United have won 18 of their opening matches of the Premier League out of the 27 seasons that have been played. Solskjaer will be seeking to make this the nineteenth opening match victory for the club. On the other hand, Chelsea has won 17 of their opening fixtures, one fewer than United so Lampard will be seeking to match United’s 18 opening match victories at the start of the Premier League season. I cannot wait for the football to return to the Theatre of Dreams this summer. It is now time to get behind the manager and the players on the pitch.

Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw;
