Confirmed: United's October Premier League fixtures
Story updated: 2 September 2023
Manchester United's Premier League schedule for October has been confirmed.
The derby with Manchester City will be staged towards the end of the month, with the Old Trafford encounter being moved to 29 October, kicking off at 15:30 GMT. The fixture, which we won 2-1 last season with Marcus Rashford netting a memorable winner, is to be shown live on Sky Sports in the UK.
The unusual start time was agreed following consultation between the clubs, the broadcaster and local authorities.
Our opening league match of this period remains a 15:00 BST kick-off, against Brentford at Old Trafford, with the 7 October date meaning we have a run of four successive home matches in the division in the traditional slot.
After an international break, our trip to newly-promoted Sheffield United will now take place on Saturday 21 October, with kick-off at 20:00 BST.
The visit to Bramall Lane was originally scheduled for Sunday 22 October at 14:00 BST, but it has reverted to the previous day because United are now scheduled to play against FC Copenhagen at Old Trafford in the Champions League the following Tuesday.
The game against the Blades will be shown live on Sky Sports in the UK.
