The week ahead for Reds

Monday 11 March 2019 09:00

Life at Manchester United remains fast paced, so our weekly guide is here to bring you up to speed with what's coming up at the club over the next seven days...


The first team will be recovering from Sunday's Premier League defeat to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium - and MUTV subscribers can watch a full replay of the match at 10:00 GMT or 14:00 GMT. Reaction to the game will continue in The Paddy Crerand Show, a weekly dose of topical chat with the club legend at the usual time of 18:30 GMT. 


The April edition of Inside United goes on sale, so don't forget to pick up your copy or order the club's official monthly magazine online. Elsewhere, we will be wishing our Under-23s goalkeeper Dean Henderson, who is currently on loan at Championship club Sheffield United, a happy 22nd birthday. There are also a couple of anniversaries to mark - Darren Fletcher's debut for United against FC Basel on this day in 2003, and Roy Keane's final goal for the club on this day in 2005 against Southampton. 

This week marks 16 years since Fletcher's debut in a 1-1 home draw against Basel in the Champions League.


Young midfielder James Garner, who recently made his first-team debut against Crystal Palace, will celebrate his 18th birthday. It falls on the same day that Nicky Butt's Under-19s are in action in Denmark, in the UEFA Youth League Round of 16 against FC Midtjylland in a crucial one-legged tie. Kick-off will be at 13:00 GMT and you will be able to watch extended highlights from the game on MUTV at 23:00 GMT, or at 10:00 GMT and 16:00 GMT on Thursday. Meanwhile, it's 20 years to the day since Andy Cole's double against his former club Newcastle United earned the Reds a 2-1 win at St James' Park in the league during our Treble-winning campaign. 


The first team will be stepping up preparations at the Aon Training Complex, ahead of Saturday's important Emirates FA Cup quarter-final tie against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux. 


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is likely to hold his press conference ahead of the FA Cup tie at Wolves, with the time of the media briefing yet to be confirmed. However, attention will also turn to European matters as the Reds discover our reward for eliminating Paris Saint-Germain when the UEFA Champions League quarter-final draw is made in Nyon, Switzerland, from 11:00 GMT (12:00 CET). Elsewhere, we will be wishing our Academy graduate and French World Cup-winning star Paul Pogba a happy 26th birthday! 

The Champions League quarter-final draw takes place on Friday.


A busy day of action begins with a trip to Tyneside for our Under-18s, who face Newcastle United in a 12:30 GMT kick-off which you can see live on MUTV. That is followed later by Solskjaer's side facing Wolves at Molineux with a place in April's FA Cup semi-finals at Wembley at stake. Kick-off in the West Midlands is at 19:55 GMT, with coverage starting on MUTV at 18:30 GMT. As ever, you can also follow our coverage on and in the Official App, where our new Match Centre featuring innovative live stats is at your fingertips! 

United drew 1-1 against Wolves at Old Trafford in the league back in September.


Like the first team, United Women also have an FA Cup quarter-final to look forward to this weekend, as Casey Stoney's side travel to Adams Park, the home of Wycombe Wanderers, to face top-flight outfit Reading. The Reds will be hoping to avenge a 2-0 defeat against the Royals in our first-ever home game, in the Continental Tyres League Cup back in August. Kick-off will be at 14:00 GMT and you can watch the game live on MUTV. Elsewhere, our loyal fanbase across Ireland will be marking Saint Patrick's Day and it's the 20th anniversary of our 1-1 draw away to Inter Milan, which sealed a place in the Champions League semi-finals during our Treble-winning campaign of 1998/99.
