The release of the 2018/19 Premier League fixture list is almost here and on Thursday morning, fans will find out who their teams will be facing on the opening weekend.
All 20 clubs will be hoping to get their campaigns off to a flying start, but who boasts the best record in Matchweek 1?
The Red Devils average 2.12 points per match, winning an impressive 17 of their 26 opening-day fixtures.
But a Chelsea win, combined with United not claiming three points, on the weekend of 11 August would return the Blues to the top.
Of the promoted clubs, Wolverhampton Wanderers boast the best record.
They have two wins from their four PL fixtures on opening day.
Their 1.5 points per match puts them in seventh, just ahead of Fulham, who have lost only four of their 13 MW1 fixtures.
Southampton supporters could be forgiven for hoping for an away fixture to start with.
They have seen their team win only two of 19 Matchweek 1 fixtures, both of which came on the road.
The Cherries have yet to record a point from their three openers so far.
