Manchester United lost their opening fixture of 2022/23 but have an excellent record on the first day overall. Erik ten Hag's side will start the Premier League 2023/24 campaign at Old Trafford against Wolves. 13-time Premier League winners Manchester United were once the darkest dream of all teams across England but Sir Alex Ferguson's departure changed it all. His effort for the club is irreplaceable but Erik Ten is trying his best to take the club to the highest peak once again. He is all set to start his second season with Manchester United against Wolves on Monday night. In his first season, The Red Devils finished third in the Premier League table, won Carabao Cup, and lost the FA Cup Final against Manchester City. It was a brilliant season to start something fresh but this will be the ultimate test for the Dutch manager.

The Downfall and the Rise

The decade since Fergie's departure has been rocky at Old Trafford and the club's recent oscillation in fortunes has coincided with the rise of their noisy neighbours. Once a pesky distraction, Manchester City have since emerged as the Premier League's dominant force as they recently matched United's legacy of 1999 by winning the treble.

Although it is not easy for the neighbors to match United's numbers in terms of trophies, they have shown the world what they are capable of. Pep Guardiola's Manchester City have become one of the dominant force in World Football. Under Erik Ten Hag, Manchester United are dreaming again, and this season will be the toughest challenge for the Dutch manager and the players. To have a great season, a team needs to start the campaign on top and that's what United will like to do against Wolves in the Theatre of Dreams. Here's United's record in Premier League opening day fixtures.
