Jose Mourinho, the biggest and possibly riskiest managerial appointment of the summer, will start his tenure at the smallest of stadiums with his Manchester United side playing away at Bournemouth in their opening game of the 2016/17 Premier League season.

The Special One's first game at Old Trafford will be against Southampton.

It appears a relatively kind start for Mourinho, who returns to management following his sacking as Chelsea manager last season. His first great test will come in the fourth match of the campaign when United host Pep Guardiola's Manchester City.

Mourinho won't have to wait long for his first return to Stamford Bridge, where he won three Premier League titles, with that particular trip scheduled for 22 October.

Here are some of the highlights from Manchester United’s fixture list to look out for:

First game

Manchester United will face Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium on 13 August.

Last game

Manchester United will play against Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on 21 May 2017.

Games against biggest rivals
