Season Start: August 18, 2013
Season End: May 11, 2014
2012-13 proved to be one of the most eventful campaigns for Manchester United and their fans. Elation was achieved as the Red Devils secured their twentieth top division title whilst tears were shed as the club’s longest serving manager announced his retirement after twenty-seven years at the helm.
Sir Alex Ferguson’s successor David Moyes begins his first season as United boss in a tough way. Matchday 1 sees the tour bus embark on a trip to Swansea before taking on major rivals Chelsea and Liverpool in games two and three. After a fixture at home to newly-promoted Crystal Palace on September 14 (live on BT Sport), Moyes’ men skip across town to visit title contenders Manchester City. Four of Manchester United’s first five games dominate the fixture list on Sky Sports, with live and full interactive coverage of the champions' title defence.
October promises to be an exciting month for the reigning champions with encounters against North London’s best: long-serving rivals Arsenal before playing Spurs - one of only five teams to defeat the Red Devils last season.
Moyes’ first meeting with old club Everton takes place on December 3, with the reverse fixture at Goodison Park kicking off on April 19.
