All four of Manchester United’s Premier League fixtures currently scheduled for April have been moved to accommodate live television coverage in the UK.

The eagerly awaited derby against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium is set to be an early evening kick-off on Saturday 7 April at 17:30 BST and will be shown live on Sky Sports. However, it is subject to either team participating in the UEFA Champions League the following Tuesday.

The Reds then travel to Bournemouth and the game at the Vitality Stadium is due to be played on Saturday 21 April, with a provisional kick-off time of 17:30 BST, live on BT Sport. However, this could change if the Reds reach the semi-finals of the Emirates FA Cup – which are set to be staged at Wembley over that weekend.
