United's December fixtures announced
Manchester United have discovered our fixtures for the remainder of 2020 after the December games were announced by the Premier League.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Reds have six league games to look forward to in the final month of the year, including the traditional Boxing Day date, and there is also the prospect of some fans being allowed to attend some of them. However, for United supporters, this is dependent on any further relaxation on the COVID-19 restrictions, with Manchester currently placed in Tier 3 by the government.
Three of the matches are at Old Trafford, with the other three on the road as the Reds look to continue to climb the table.
December starts with a trip to London to meet David Moyes's West Ham United, a 17:30 GMT kick-off a week on Saturday. Seven days later, the Manchester derby takes place at the Theatre of Dreams, with the same start time, a repeat of the last game when the Reds played in front of a full stadium, winning 2-0 with Scott McTominay's late goal clinching a famous triumph which is still in the minds of anybody at the ground that day.
Our midweek slot is now on Thursday 17 December, with an away game at Sheffield United (20:00 GMT kick-off).
On Sunday 20 December, our final home clash before Christmas is against another Yorkshire side, Leeds United, with the eagerly anticipated welcoming of old foes scheduled for 16:30 GMT. It's a first meeting since 2011 and the first in the top-flight since way back in 2004.
The action then comes early on Boxing Day (26 December) as the Reds meet Leicester City at the King Power Stadium at 12:30 GMT.
United then end what has been a difficult year for everybody with a home encounter against Wolves at Old Trafford.
The match is being held on Tuesday 29 December, with kick-off at 20:00 GMT.
As with all games at the moment, it will be televised live in the UK, with full details below...
