The infamously addictive game returned on November 8th with it’s 2022 edition, taking an even deeper dive into the world of football management, adding a shiny new data hub and an improved match engine to its already extensive take on life in the dugout.
For a bit of fun, we've fired up the newly released productivity-devastator, and sent the game three years into the future to see how Manchester United line up on the first day of the 2024/25 season.
Take a look at how the game predicts United's matchday squad will look as the Reds prepare for a season opener against Tottenham Hotspur:
