The start of the 2019/20 Premier League campaign is upon us and the race to finish in the top four is both exciting and nerve-wracking for Manchester United fans.

The Red Devils achieved a sixth-place finish last season, missing out on a Champions League spot by five points.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over the reigns mid-way through the 2018/19 campaign and is eager to make his mark at Old Trafford this time around and push the club into the midst of the top four.

This summer, United have signed some excellent, English talent; the latest example being the signing of Harry Maguire from Leicester City for £80million – a world record fee for a defender.

Aaron-Wan Bissaka has also arrived in Manchester this summer and the 21-year-old right back will immediately improve United’s back line – an area that needed targeting this summer and has been bolstered.

Last season, United got off to a winning start against Leicester as they edged a 2-1 victory against the Foxes. This time around the Red Devils face Chelsea at Old Trafford and if you fancy them to gain all three points, they are currently 5/4 to win with bet365. The likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur are all in contention to finish in the top four and Solskjaer faces a stern test in achieving a Champions League spot.

Given the competition for Champions League spots again this year, you’ll get some favourable odds in this market.

A crucial component among the United ranks is France midfielder Paul Pogba. The 26-year-old revealed his desire to leave Old Trafford this summer but no move came to fruition and United have held onto, arguably, their most influential performer.

The World Cup winner could play a huge part this season and if you think he will open the 2019/20 campaign with a goal against Chelsea, SkyBet are currently offering odds of 9/4 for Pogba to score anytime.

United also have Europa League to juggle this season and it will be interesting to see how they balance the two as the Red Devils go in search of competing at the top-end of the table and achieving a top-four finish.
