Nine United Premier League fixtures changed

Thursday 17 October 2019 17:00

Nine of Manchester United’s Premier League fixtures in December and January have been rearranged for live television broadcasts.

The Premier League has confirmed its amendments for what will be a busy festive period for the Reds, starting with the visit of Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday 4 December.

The match against the North Londoners will kick off at 19:30 GMT and will be broadcast live on Amazon Prime Video.

Three days later, we travel across town to face local rivals Manchester City in a game which is scheduled to start at 17:30 GMT, live on Sky Sports.

Our opening fixture of a busy period is against Spurs on 4 December.

Due to United playing our sixth and final UEFA Europa League group match, against AZ Alkmaar on Thursday 12 December, our home match with Everton has been pushed back to Sunday 15 December.

We’ll host the Toffees at 14:00 GMT, and this game will also be broadcast live on Sky Sports.

Exactly a week later, on Sunday 22 December, we travel down to Vicarage Road to take on Watford, again in front of the Sky Sports cameras, with kick-off scheduled for 14:00 GMT.

The traditional Boxing Day slot remains intact, although the visit of Newcastle United to Old Trafford will now get under way at 17:30 GMT, as one of nine games Amazon Prime Video is showing that day.

We’ll wave goodbye to 2019 with a short trip to Turf Moor to take on Burnley on Saturday 28 December. The match with the Clarets will start at 19:45 GMT and will be shown on BT Sport.

Four days later, we’ll be in the capital for New Year's Day, at the Emirates Stadium. Our match with Unai Emery’s Arsenal has been pushed back to 20:00 GMT on 1 January 2020, from its original 15:00 slot, in order to accommodate BT Sport’s live coverage.

After a break in Premier League action for the FA Cup third round, the Reds will face Norwich at home on Saturday 11 January at 15:00 GMT and this will be followed by a trip to Anfield on Sunday 19 January to take on Liverpool. That crunch clash will kick off at 16:30 GMT and is being broadcast on Sky Sports.

Finally, we’ll see out January by hosting Burnley on Wednesday 22 January in front of the BT Sport cameras (20:15 GMT kick-off).

Our trip to Anfield will now be on Sunday 19 January 2020.

In addition to the three league fixtures scheduled for the first month of 2020, United will also play in the Emirates FA Cup third round - and the fourth at the end of the month, should we progress.
