February fixture changes

Two of Manchester United's three league fixtures in February have been given new kick-off times after being selected for live television coverage.

The Reds' Barclays Premier League home match against Everton, initially pencilled in for Saturday 9 February, is now scheduled for Sunday 10 February at 16:00 GMT. The match will be shown live on Sky Sports. However, if United are required to play a UEFA Champions League match on Tuesday 12 February, the Everton game will revert to Saturday afternoon but with a kick-off of 12:45 GMT for live TV. This will be finalised on Thursday 20 December when the draw for the Champions League last 16 is made.

The away trip to Fulham on Saturday 2 February is also affected. This will remain on the same day, but will now kick off at 17:30 GMT for live coverage on ESPN.

United's other league fixture in February, Queens Park Rangers away, will not be shown live on UK television and will therefore kick off at 15:00 GMT on Saturday 23 February.

Finally, ManUtd.com can confirm that all Barclays Premier League matches on the final day of the 2012/13 season, Sunday 19 May, will kick off at 16:00 GMT. United will be away to West Bromwich Albion.
