The week ahead for United

Monday 20 July 2020 13:03

The final six days of the Premier League season are upon us, with Manchester United's bid for a top-four place, and Champions League qualification, set to go down to the wire.

Following Leicester City's 3-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Reds are level on goal-difference with Brendan Rodgers's Foxes, and will break into the top four if we gain a draw or win against West Ham United on Wednesday.

That would set things up for an intriguing final day of the league campaign, as we face Leicester away from home, while Chelsea are also in action against Wolves.

So, here's a look at what lies in store for what is a season-defining week...


The start of a new week means the arrival of a new episode of UTD Podcast and the latest edition sees Helen Evans, Sam Homewood and ex-Red David May speak to former youth-team manager Jim Ryan.

Ryan reveals how United scouted Solskjaer while originally viewing Ronny Johnsen, and also detailed the arrival of a young Paul Pogba. The episode will be available to stream on iTunes, Spotify, Deezer or your preferred podcast provider.


Ahead of the first of this week's vital fixtures for the club, the boss is set to face the media in his pre-match press conference via video call. Keep up-to-date with everything that Ole has to say thanks to our live stream, and read all the breaking stories, on and the Official App.


It's matchday, as United return to Old Trafford to face West Ham in our final home game of the domestic term. David Moyes's side have virtually assured themselves of Premier League football in 2020/21, while Ole and his squad will be eager to get back to winning ways, following the Emirates FA Cup semi-final loss to Chelsea. Kick-off for the big match is at 18:00 BST and it will be shown on Sky Sports in the UK, although you can tune into MUTV's Match Day Live programme from 17:55 BST and follow live commentary of the game via the channel.

Straight after our game against the Hammers, Chelsea will face Liverpool at Anfield from 20:15 BST, in another fixture that will have ramifications for the top-four race.

The final day of the league campaign arrives and we'll be hoping for something similar to our last visit to the Foxes, when Marcus Rashford scored the winner in February 2019.

As is customary on the final day of the season, every game kicks of at 16:00 BST, with Chelsea set to play Wolves at Stamford Bridge. Although it is yet to be determined which channel Leicester versus United will be shown on in the UK, MUTV will keep you up-to-date with our Match Day Live programme, which is on air from 14:55 BST.
