Attention will start to turn towards Thursday's Premier League game against Aston Villa, and we'll have early team news as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer debates whether or not to stick with the same starting line-up for the fourth top-flight fixture in succession.

Reds across the globe will be glued to their television sets on Tuesday night, as top-four rivals Chelsea and Leicester are both in action, away at Crystal Palace (18:00 BST kick-off) and Arsenal (20:15 BST) respectively.

Finally, we'll be wishing Women's defender Millie Turner a happy 24th birthday. Have a good one, Millie!


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will hold his pre-match press conference, via video call, ahead of the Reds' visit to the West Midlands. Keep up-to-date with everything the boss has to say via our live stream, and read all the breaking news stories, on ManUtd.com and the Official App.

Later that day, Sheffield United host Wolverhampton Wanderers at Bramall Lane (18:00 BST) in another game which could have implications on the fight for Europe. Wolves are currently three points below us in sixth, while the Blades are also still in with a chance of European qualification, for the first time in their history.


It's matchday, as United face a trip to Villa Park for the first time since 2015. The game, which kicks off at 20:15 BST, is being broadcast live on Sky Sports in the UK, although you can tune into MUTV's Match Day Live programme from 19:10 BST and follow live commentary of the game via the channel.

United's remaining league fixtures are finalised


The Reds now know the full match schedule for the rest of the Premier League campaign.


We'll be reacting to Thursday's result... and hopefully it'll be another three points to keep our recent run of good form going! Ole is set to hold his pre-match press conference for Southampton (Monday 13 July) straight after the match at Villa Park, and we'll also have the latest team news for you from that call, on Friday morning. Don't miss it!


It's time for another round of Premier League fixtures, and from United point of view, Sheffield United host Chelsea at Bramall Lane at 17:30 BST. Chris Wilder's men came from two goals down to secure a point at Stamford Bridge last August - a similar result this time will do nicely!


We kick off Sunday with a United birthday - many happy returns to our left-back Luke Shaw, who turns 25! Luke signed for the Reds from Southampton in 2014, and has made 137 appearances for the club to date, taking home both the Sir Matt Busby and Players' Player of the Year awards last season.

As we count down to Monday's clash with Southampton at Old Trafford, Ole will be keeping one eye on results elsewhere. Wolves host Everton at Molineux in the lunchtime kick-off, before Brendan Rodgers's Leicester travel to the south coast to take on struggling Bournemouth (kick-off at 19:00 BST).
