United To Start At Home To Birmingham City
At the first glance, the 2009/10 fixture list doesn't have the imbalanced nature of last season's: United have been handed a reasonable run of fixtures.
The Champions start at home to promoted Birmingham City on August 15 and two weeks later we entertain Arsenal in the first 'big' game of the season. We travel to Liverpool on October 24 and host the dippers on March 20. April 3 will see us at home to Chelsea while our trip to Stamford Bridge will take place on November 7.
City will come to Old Trafford on September 19, the return fixture being played on April 17. April is our toughest month anyway: it includes the visit of Chelsea, a trip to Eastlands, an always tricky away fixture at Blackburn and a home game against Spurs.
Well, this is it. Up for the fourth in a row!
