As a Manchester United fan, I am hoping for Manchester United to continue their dominance of the Premier League and win their 20th league title. However, it is not an easy game to predict as any team can beat the other on any given day. The match will be played on Sunday, 7 August 2022t at Old Trafford in Manchester and kick off at 15:00 CET.
