What's happening this week at United?

Monday 27 September 2021 07:00

It's set to be another busy week at Manchester United no fewer than six games taking place for the club's various teams.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men have two home fixtures to look forward to in the space of four days as we face Villarreal in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday before Everton come to Old Trafford for a Premier League clash on Saturday. 

Marc Skinner's United Women will be in Women's Super League action at the weekend with a journey to Birmingham. As well, our various Academy sides will also play several important games this week, so there's plenty to look forward to over the next seven days. 

Here's how the week shapes up...

UTD Podcast: This one's unmissable

Out on Monday, it's the UTD Podcast episode that Sam, Helen and Maysie have all been waiting for...


We start the week by releasing a very special episode of UTD Podcast with none other than former manager Sir Alex Ferguson. The special and frankly unmissable episode will first be available exclusively in our Official App, so make sure you have it downloaded. 

Solskjaer's squad will put in the hard work at Carrington as Champions League football returns to the Theatre of Dreams just two days later. 

Anniversary-wise, it's exactly seven years since Luke Shaw made his debut for United


Ole will meet the media ahead of our meeting with Villarreal in Champions League Group F. He'll be joined by one of his players for a club press conference starting at 13:30 BST and you can watch it live on MUTV, ManUtd.com and in our Official App.

On Tuesday, it's 17 years since a young Wayne Rooney announced himself to the Reds faithful in the same competition, scoring a hat-trick on his club and Champions League debut against Fenerbahce.


Floodlights, the music, the fans. United welcome Villarreal for a very special European evening at the Theatre of Dreams, with kick-off set for 20:00 BST. 

Our Under-19s will also face the Yellow Submarine's youngsters in the UEFA Youth League at 13:00 BST. 


The Reds will recover following Wednesday's Champions League clash as attention turns to the weekend's return to Premier League action, a home meeting with Everton. 


Ole will once again address the media, before our encounter with the Toffees. You can watch the manager's press conference on MUTV, ManUtd.com and the Official App - usually from 13:30 BST.  

As the weekend starts, we also want to mark the birthdays of two of the club's greatest young talents. It's 85 years since the birth of the late, great Duncan Edwards, while recent Academy graduate Mason Greenwood turns 20. 

Whiteside jokes about Mason's record chances


We spoke with Northern Irish legend Norman as he was honoured at a special dinner at Old Trafford.


We're back in Premier League action as Rafael Benitez's Everton side make the 30-mile journey from Merseyside to M16 for another 12:30 BST kick-off. 

United Under-23s will also face opposition from The Beatles' city, as they host arch rivals Liverpool at Leigh Sports Village, in a game that begins at 14:00 BST.

Meanwhile, our Under-18s will be in the North East for their 12:30 BST encounter with Newcastle United.


The week finishes with United Women's trip to the Midlands to face Birmingham in the Women's Super League. Marc Skinner's side will be in action from 18:45 BST.

The day also marks the 40-year anniversary of Bryan Robson signing for United, which coincidently was on the same day ex-Reds striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic was born. Happy birthday, Ibra!
