Confirmed: United's May Premier League fixtures

Wednesday 05 May 2021 18:00

Manchester United's Premier League schedule in May has now been confirmed, with the release of the final fixture changes for 2020/21 - including a new date for the postponed Liverpool match.

The Reds already knew when trips to Aston Villa and Wolverhampton Wanderers would take place, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side travel to Villa Park this coming Sunday (9 May), for a 14:05 BST kick-off, live on Sky Sports.

Meanwhile, the details of our match at Molineux have been clear for a little while now, as United take on Wolves on the final day of the season, kicking off at 16:00 BST on Sunday 23 May. All of the Premier League games that day will be played simultaneously.

However, each of our three remaining Old Trafford dates, against Leicester City, Liverpool and Fulham, have been rearranged, with the first two affected by Sunday's postponement.

United v Liverpool will now be played at 20:15 BST on Thursday 13 May and, as intended originally, the game will be broadcast live on Sky Sports.

The scheduling of that fixture means the visit of Leicester - already rearranged due to the Foxes' involvement in the Emirates FA Cup final - has been brought forward 24 hours to Tuesday 11 May.

BT Sport will show that key top-four clash live, with kick-off at 18:00 BST.

Finally, our penultimate contest of the league season - and the last to be played at Old Trafford in 2020/21 - sees Solskjaer's men entertain Fulham on Tuesday 18 May (kick-off at 18:00 BST, live on Sky Sports).

With the Fulham match now confirmed for 18 May, this opens up the possibility of hosting a limited number of fans at this match if the Government’s planned roadmap out of the current lockdown remains on track.

Further information is expected from the Government by 10 May which will confirm whether lockdown restrictions will be eased further, enabling fans to return to Old Trafford for the Fulham match.

Once we know more, we will be able to communicate the relevant stadium and ticket arrangements to fans.
