United v Watford: Essential info
Manchester United return to Premier League action on Sunday, when we welcome Watford to Old Trafford.
The game will also be a poignant affair at Old Trafford as fans pay their respects to our former goalkeeper Harry Gregg, who passed away earlier this week.
Ahead of the match, there will be a minute’s silence at the ground, while both sets of players will also wear black armbands.
Here’s everything you need to know about Sunday’s game…
Sunday’s game will not be broadcast live in the UK, but you can keep across all the action on MUTV. Prior to kick-off, subscribers can watch the build-up via the ‘Match Day Live’ show from 12:55 GMT, followed by live commentary of the game itself. The match will also be replayed in full on MUTV from 00:00 GMT on Monday and at various times throughout the day.
Martin Atkinson will be the man in the middle on Sunday. The 48-year-old has overseen two United matches this year: the 1-0 victory over Leicester City in September and our 1-1 home draw with Liverpool a month later. Atkinson will be assisted at the weekend by Lee Betts and Peter Kirkup, while Anthony Taylor is set to assume the role of fourth official. From their Stockley Park base, Andre Marriner will be watching the VAR screens, alongside assistant Scott Ledger.
The culmination of the Premier League’s inaugural winter break means that, for the first time in three weeks, we have a full complement of fixtures this weekend. It all kicks off on Saturday lunchtime when two of our top-four rivals, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur, face off at Stamford Bridge, followed by three 15:00 GMT matches. Manchester City then wrap up proceedings on Saturday when they travel to take on Leicester City, before three matches on Sunday.
