After an encouraging campaign last term, Man Utd will be looking for glory in the upcoming Premier League season.
Man United are the most successful Premier League team of all time but in recent seasons have been on a mission back to the top. Last campaign was very positive and a few blockbuster editions in the summer transfer window could make all the difference.
Ahead of the 2021/22 Premier League campaign, we’ve taken a look at all you need to know about Manchester United – from their upcoming league fixtures, to the latest football betting odds for the club this term.
Who are Manchester United’s key players?
Manchester United have many quality players who could easily be considered ‘key’. However, the impact that Bruno Fernandes has had since joining their midfield has been undeniable. The Portuguese playmaker consistently makes an impact, whether that be getting on the scoresheet or providing for his teammates. At the other end of the pitch, England international Harry Maguire has been instrumental in the success of United. Leading the line from the centre-back position, his strong challenges and precise clearances make him an attacker’s nightmare.
While we are yet to see much of him in a United shirt, it is highly likely Jadon Sancho will play a crucial role in Man United’s season this year. In an impressive season at Dortmund, Sancho provided 19 league goal involvements from just 26 appearances, 2 of which were from the bench. He boasts an average 10.59 progressive passes per 90mins which is almost double the average of attacking midfielders and wingers. This should provide great supply to Cavani up front. In simple, Manchester United look a real force this season.
Where is Manchester United’s stadium?
Old Trafford is located in the Greater Manchester region and is a sight to behold. Holding a capacity of 74,140, the Theatre of Dreams is the largest club football stadium in the United Kingdom. It’s actually the second largest stadium in the UK, second to only Wembley.
When is the next Manchester United Premier League game?
Man Utd travel to Molineux to play Wolves in their third game of the season on August 29. Wolves were far from flattered by the score-line in their 1-0 loss to Tottenham, a game in which they recorded 25 shots and had 58% of possession. They will hope to put up a fight against United who failed to beat Southampton at St. Mary’s.

What are the Manchester United odds to win the Premier League?
United have made some key additions to their squad as they look to finish on top of the Premier League for the first time since the 2012/13 season. They are currently fourth favourites to win the title, priced at 7/1 but if they don’t manage this, the Red Devils are just 4/11 for a top-four finish.
What are the odds that Manchester United win the next game?
Following the demolition of Leeds on the opening game week, you’d have expected Manchester United to take all 3 points home against a weaker Southampton side but they only managed a 1-1 draw. Irrespective of that, United go into the match against Wolves as 4/5 favourites. Wolves, the underdogs, are 4/1 to produce an upset and a draw is 12/5.
What’s the latest Manchester United transfer and injury news?
United mean business in the transfer window. They’ve been linked with countless players and having finally completed the signing of England international Jadon Sancho as well as ex-Madrid ace, Raphael Varane. Varane will make a solid partnership with Harry Maguire to greatly improve a defence that has arguably held them back in previous seasons. At present, Manchester United look to be content with the signings they’ve made and are now moving to focus on contracts with some of their star players.
When it comes to injuries, Dean Henderson is feeling “much better”, so it’ll be interesting to see who starts between the United posts on Sunday. Alex Telles will remain out for at least a few more weeks after his pre-season ankle injury while Phil Jones has returned to training and could be in contention for the game as could Eric Bailly who has returned to training as well. Rashford will miss up to two months following his decision to undergo shoulder surgery.
