Date arranged for Burnley v United

Thursday 31 December 2020 14:00

Manchester United's Premier League game at Burnley will be played on Tuesday 12 January, with a 20:15 GMT kick-off.

The Turf Moor encounter was originally scheduled to be our opening game of the campaign, only to be postponed due to our involvement in the latter stages of last season's Europa League.

It will be shown live on Sky Sports in the UK.

Manchester City's home game with Aston Villa, also held over from the opening week, will be played on Wednesday 20 January, again with a 20:15 GMT start.

United should now approach the big game at leaders Liverpool on 17 January, having played the same amount of matches as the champions.

Burnley started the season poorly but have since looked more like their old selves under manager Sean Dyche.

The Clarets have beaten Arsenal, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Sheffield United recently, while also drawing with Everton and Aston Villa.

Last season, United won 2-0 at Turf Moor, with goals from Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford, before the visitors triumphed by the same scoreline at Old Trafford last January.
