Manchester United FC and Tottenham Hotspur are set to open the 2015/16 English Premier League season on August 8, 19:45 (GMT+8) at the Old Trafford. Last season, the goal of the Red Devils was a top-four finish and a UEFA Champions League spot, and both were accomplished. Heading to the new season, Louis van Gaal's side do not want to settle for anything less, the Red Devils aiming to lift the silverware this time around.
Swansea City are set to open their 2015/16 Premier League season with a huge test, facing defending champions Chelsea on August 9, 00:30 (GMT+8) at the Stamford Bridge.

Can they get a good start and upend Chelsea?

Can Newcastle United start their campaign strong this time en route to a constant top half spot?
