Premier League team guide: Manchester United in the spotlight
Manchester United are looking to improve upon their third-place finish last season

What can we expect from Manchester United during the 2023-24 Premier League campaign? LiveScore turn the spotlight on Erik ten Hag's side.

Manchester United will enter the season with a renewed hunger after securing a place in the Champions League and reaching the FA Cup final last term.

Manchester United will enter the season with a renewed hunger after securing a place in the Champions League and reaching the FA Cup final last term.

The Red Devils have been improving under Erik ten Hag and have made some shrewd signings this summer as they attempt to bridge the gap to rivals Manchester City.

Ten Hag’s first full season in charge was a success as he won the Carabao Cup to end United’s trophy drought.

The 13-time Premier League winners finished 14 points off eventual victors City but had a comfortable eight-point gap to Liverpool in fifth.

It was a bumpy start for the FA Cup finalists, who lost their first two matches to Brighton and Brentford, but a crucial win over Jurgen Klopp’s Reds set things in motion for United.

They won six of their following 10 games in the league and continued their hot streak into the new year.

Old Trafford hosted some memorable fixtures in the early parts of 2023, with victories over City, Aston Villa and Chelsea enough to cement a respectable top-three finish.

New faces

United have reinforced some key areas of their squad over the break — including their midfield and goalkeeper.

Champions League finalist Andre Onana replaced David de Gea in goal in an attempt to facilitate Ten Hag’s desire to play out from the back, while Mason Mount has arrived from Chelsea to add some more energy in the middle of the pitch.

A new attacking prospect has arrived in Rasmus Hojlund who is joining from Atalanta in a deal that will set United back £72million.

The Danish goalscorer impressed in Serie A last season but will be expected to hit the ground running under his new head coach.
