U23s: Premier League 2 fixtures


The Premier League have released the Under-23 matches for the 2018/19 season.

After Premier League 2 encounters away to Aston Villa and at home to Fulham, the young Reds will resume their International Cup campaign with back-to-back matches at Leigh Sports Village.

United welcome Dutch side PSV on Thursday 17 January 2019 and French outfit PSG on Friday 26 January.

All matches will kick off at 19:00 GMT and are subject to change.

Last season, Sbragia’s team eased through the group stage with wins over Swansea City, Athletic Club and Celtic before losing 2-0 to Spanish outfit Villarreal in the quarter-finals.

Porto eventually went on to win the competition for the second successive season, beating Arsenal 1-0 in the final at the Emirates Stadium.

Our Under-23s reached the knockout stages of the competition last season.
