Manchester United will kick off their Premier League season at Bournemouth. It will be Jose Mourinho’s first league game as manager.
Their final game will be at home to Crystal Palace, who they faced in the FA Cup Final in 2015/16.
Mourinho’s first game at Old Trafford will be against Southampton, meaning he will take charge of two games that were lost last year under Louis van Gaal. He won’t have to wait long for a huge game – Manchester City visit Old Trafford on September 10th.

The 2016/17 Premier League fixture list was released on Wednesday morning and Manchester United will begin the new season with a trip to AFC Bournemouth.
It will of course be Jose Mourinho’s first top-flight match in charge of the Reds and the Portuguese will be determined to start with a victory over Eddie Howe’s Cherries at the Vitality Stadium.
The first Manchester derby has been scheduled for 10 September at Old Trafford – as you can see in the full fixture list below – and that pits Mourinho against the Blues’ new boss Pep Guardiola. Our new manager will also face rivals Liverpool at Anfield on 15 October before returning to Chelsea a week later.
Other standout fixtures include the Boxing Day match against Sunderland at Old Trafford, a trip to West Ham United’s new Olympic Stadium on 2 January and the final game against Crystal Palace at home.
