After finishing sixth in the last two consecutive campaign`s, United will be looking to start this season with a win.

Ahead of the fixture, we`ve coupled together some early team-news.

Jose Mourinho will give his three summer signings their debuts in this fixture, with Romelu Lukaku, Victor Lindelof and Nemanja Matic all set to start.

On the negative side, Jose Mourinho will be without the injured trio of Luke Shaw, Ashley young and Marcos Rojo, all of whom are recovering from injuries sustained last season.
