Manchester United tend to start the Premier League (PL) campaign well and have won each of their previous four opening day matches – their joint-longest such run in the competition. Notably, three of those games produced over 2.5 goals.
The ‘Red Devils’ will be hoping to challenge for the title this season, but to do so they will need to improve at Old Trafford – especially in defense. They kept just two home clean sheets in the PL last term, their fewest at home in the top-flight since 1962/63. Meanwhile, their average of 1.32 goals conceded per PL home game last season ranked them joint-tenth in the defensive standings.
