The 2019–20 season will be Manchester United's 28th season in the Premier League and their 45th consecutive season in the top flight of English football. The club will participate in the Premier League, the UEFA Europa League, the EFL Cup and the FA Cup.

This will be the first season since 2008–09 without club captain Antonio Valencia who left United at the end of the 2018–19 season.[1]

Pre-season and friendlies[edit]

United are preceding their 2019–20 campaign with a tour of Australia, Singapore, China, Norway and Wales. The first two matches were played at the Perth Stadium in Perth, Australia; the first was a 2–0 win over local side Perth Glory, with goals from Marcus Rashford and James Garner, followed by a meeting with historic rivals Leeds United, which the Red Devils won 4–0 thanks to goals from Rashford, Phil Jones, Anthony Martial, as well as a maiden senior goal for Mason Greenwood.[2]

United will then take part in the 2019 International Champions Cup, playing matches against Internazionale in Singapore, Tottenham Hotspur in Shanghai and Milan in Cardiff.[3] Between the matches against Tottenham and Milan, United will play an additional friendly against Kristiansund BK, the boyhood club of Norwegian manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær.[4]
