The new Premier League season starts today, with Arsenal going away to Brentford.

The 2021-22 campaign will definitely be a tough one, and whoever wins it will do so with a massive fight.

Many are wondering how Manchester United will fare this season having finished second last term. United made some big signings, as Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho have both been added to the squad.

While United fans are positive ahead of the season, many of the country’s top pundits do not seem so keen about Manchester United.

The BBC Sport asked 20 pundits comprising of mostly ex footballers to pick their top four this season, and surprisingly none of them backed Manchester United to win the league.

Indeed, Manchester United and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer have a point to prove this season.
