TV dates for April announced

Four of United's Barclays Premier League fixtures have been moved to accommodate live television coverage - although each of them is still subject to change.

The Reds' derby against second-placed Manchester City is provisionally scheduled for Monday 8 April, although this will be moved to Saturday 6 April (12.45pm) if the Reds qualify for the Champions League quarter-finals.

Of course, last season's clash with the Blues at the Etihad Stadium also took place on a Monday night.

United's trip to Stoke City will be live on Sunday 14 April unless Sir Alex's side reach the FA Cup semi-finals and another Monday night game, against Aston Villa, and a Sunday trip to Arsenal await the Reds unless the the team reaches the last four of the Champions League.

If the Gunners make the European semi-finals, and are due to play on the Tuesday, then the game will also be switched.
