Paul Pogba in action against Huddersfield Town

United's Huddersfield date switched

Friday 05 April 2019 16:03

Manchester United's final away match of the Premier League season has been switched to accommodate television coverage in the UK.

The game against Huddersfield Town at the John Smith's Stadium is provisionally now scheduled for Sunday 5 May with a 14:00 BST kick-off. It will be shown live on Sky Sports.

The rearranged date is still subject to more movement, depending on whether United can continue our progress in the Champions League and when those dates might fall.

Angel Gomes turns on the ball during the Boxing Day victory over Huddersfield.

The Terriers have already had their relegation from the top flight confirmed but they picked up a surprise 2-1 victory in this fixture last season, with Marcus Rashford's goal proving in vain.

However, the Reds defeated Huddersfield 3-1 at Old Trafford on Boxing Day in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's second match in caretaker charge.

It means, as things stand, our last Saturday match of the domestic campaign is the upcoming Old Trafford encounter with West Ham United on 13 April.

Ole's men will still have one more league fixture left after the match in west Yorkshire - the home game against Cardiff City on the final day, a week later.

There is also the Treble Reunion event to look forward to, featuring the Legends contest with Bayern Munich, at Old Trafford on Sunday 26 May.

Meanwhile, one of United's rivals for a top-four slot, Tottenham Hotspur, have had their clash at Bournemouth provisionally moved to Monday 6 May, with a 20:00 BST start.
