Tottenham Hotspur will visit Old Trafford for their first match of the 2015-2016 season, so what did Spurs fans have to say about that?

The last Premier League campaign may only just be over and the summer transfer window not yet officially open, but already the fixtures for the next campaign have been released, and there are some humdingers among them.

Of the opening day fixtures, the one that really catches the eye is Tottenham Hotspur’s trip to Manchester United.

Last season United ran out 3-0 winners in the corresponding fixture, with goals from Marouane Fellaini, Michael Carrick and Wayne Rooney sealing the victory before half-time in what was the club’s finest performance of the season.

As a result, Tottenham will no doubt be seeking revenge and do not expect them to roll over as they did so alarmingly back in March.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has a big season ahead of him and a win against United will be the perfect start, with a number of new players likely to feature for both sides.

Following the news of the clash we took to Twitter to see what Tottenham fans thought and you can read a selection of what we found below:
