United v Spurs: The essential info
Manchester United face a second home match in just four days when we welcome Tottenham Hotspur to Old Trafford in the Premier League on Wednesday.
That result leaves us two points behind the North Londoners, meaning a win against Jose Mourinho’s men would propel us above them in the table.
Here’s all the need-to-know details ahead of Wednesday’s clash…
WHICH TV CHANNEL IS IT ON IN THE UK?
For the first time ever, fans will be able to watch a Manchester United match live on Amazon Prime, with the streaming service set to show their maiden 10 Premier League games during this set of midweek fixtures. Supporters can also watch the match for free by signing up to a one-month trial of the service.
Alternatively, MUTV subscribers will be able to watch all the build-up through the ‘Match Day Live’ show from 18:00 GMT; this is then followed by live radio commentary. You can also keep up to date with what’s going on through our coverage on ManUtd.com and the Official App, where you can track live data and player statistics in the Match Centre. MUTV will be showing a full re-run of the game the following day.
Paul Tierney will oversee Wednesday’s game against Spurs, which will be the third United clash the 38-year-old has taken charge of this season. Tierney was the official at Stamford Bridge five weeks ago when the Reds beat Chelsea 2-1 in the Carabao Cup, and during our Premier League defeat to Crystal Palace earlier in the season. Constantine Hatzidakis and Harry Lennard will be Tierney’s assistants at Old Trafford, while Stuart Attwell will assume the role of fourth official. Michael Oliver will be the VAR referee for the match, with Stuart Burt assisting him from their Stockley Park base.
