All eyes will be on Erik ten Hag on Sunday when he names his first Manchester United team in the Premier League.
There have been some positive results in pre-season, but the Cristiano Ronaldo situation and their transfer business have dominated the headlines.
The Red Devils face Brighton at Old Trafford at 2pm on Sunday and a fast start will be vital for Ten Hag to get the fanbase on side.
The 2021/22 campaign was awful as they finished sixth with their lowest points tally in the Premier League era as they finished with just 58.
Finishing outside the Champions League places was a huge blow, and a large contributing factor to why Ronaldo wants to leave.
His status is still unresolved having missed the entirety of their pre-season tour to Thailand and Australia.
The 37-year-old returned for showdown talks with the club and still remains a United player, but is still seeking an exit.
He featured in the friendly against Rayo Vallecano on Sunday, but left Old Trafford at half-time.

There are serious doubts over whether he will actually play on Sunday, with reports erring towards him being left on the bench if he makes the matchday squad at all.
This would allow Anthony Martial to seize his opportunity through the middle, in lieu of the club not signing any other forward during the transfer window.
Marcus Rashford looks refreshed and revitalised, while it is a big year for Jadon Sancho.
There are also likely to be a few debuts for United with Christian Eriksen to start in midfield alongside Bruno Fernandes and Scott McTominay.
In defence, Luke Shaw has failed to impress in pre-season and may have to cede his place to Tyrell Malacia – who would also be making his debut.
New signing Lisandro Martinez is in line to play to the left of captain Harry Maguire in the centre of defence.
Diogo Dalot may also win the race to start at right-back over Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who is available for transfer this summer.
