Man Utd vs Everton at Old Trafford

What is happening at United this week?

Monday 09 January 2023 08:32

Another busy week awaits for Manchester United, with all of our sides in action and a Manchester derby to contend with for the men's team.

Erik ten Hag's Reds have two huge games across the next seven days, taking on Charlton Athletic in the Carabao Cup quarter-final at Old Trafford on Tuesday before facing Manchester City - also at the Theatre of Dreams - on Saturday.

United Women will return to league action after their warm-weather training camp in Malta to take on Liverpool, while both of our Academy teams have fixtures too.

With plenty to sink your teeth into, here's everything you can expect at United during the week ahead...
