What's happening at United this week?

Monday 22 June 2020 20:00

After three months of lockdown, Manchester United are back in action again and there is plenty to keep an eye on throughout this week.

Following on from a 1-1 draw at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last Friday, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Reds will now play two matches, in two different competitions, in the space of four days as we enter a frantic period of fixtures over the next month and a half.

But let's start with the current week and our handy guide to what you can expect...

MONDAY

MUTV Group Chat gets you set for the exciting week ahead, as David May, Ben Thornley, Danny Webber and Wes Brown join Mark Sullivan to cast their eye over last Friday's match and debate the need for crowd noise in behind-closed-doors matches.

TUESDAY

The boss will face the media, on screen at least, ahead of Wednesday's Premier League fixture against Sheffield United. You can watch his press conference from 10:30 BST in the Manchester United Official App as well as on ManUtd.com and MUTV.

On a sombre note, the funeral of Tony Dunne will take place on Tuesday. A member of Sir Matt Busby’s all-conquering United side of the late 1960s, Dunne lined up at left-back for the 1968 European Cup final and only seven players have made more than his 535 appearances for the club. The former Red's death was sadly announced on 8 June.

WEDNESDAY

Four days on from our 1-1 draw with Spurs, the Reds make a long-awaited return to Old Trafford, as we welcome Chris Wilder's Blades to the Theatre of Dreams. It has been some time since Solskjaer's squad set foot on the famous turf for a competitive match - the last one was on 8 March when we beat Manchester City 2-0.

The kick-off time for our first home fixture in 108 days is at 18:00 BST and MUTV subscribers can watch exclusive build-up in the Match Day Live show from 16:55 GMT and then listen to live audio commentary of the game itself. With fans unable to attend the matches, our Season Ticket Holders have been offered free access to MUTV Digital for two months, and can watch match highlights the following day, along with the rest of our exclusive content. The game will be shown live in the UK on Sky Sports, Sky One and the free-to-air channel Pick.

MUTV pundit David May will be hoping for a double celebration - a win for United on his birthday.

FRIDAY

We turn our attention to the weekend's Emirates FA Cup quarter-final against Norwich City, as the boss will once again face the media for his pre-match press conference, which you will be able to follow on ManUtd.com and MUTV and in the Official App.

SATURDAY

United travel to take on Norwich City at Carrow Road on Saturday, as both sides strive for a place in the semi-finals of the FA Cup. The Reds have progressed past Wolverhampton Wanderers, Tranmere Rovers and Derby County to make it to the last eight of the oldest national football competition in the world and Ole's squad will be itching for a place in the final four, and a trip to Wembley.

Saturday's match kicks off at 17:30 BST and the exclusive build-up on MUTV begins at 16:20 BST. The game itself will be shown live in the UK on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.

SUNDAY

Keep across the app and website for continued reaction to Saturday's match at Carrow Road, plus highlights of all the key moments. If the Reds are successful in knocking out the Canaries, then we'll watch the three other FA Cup quarter-finals with great interest on Sunday afternoon and evening: Sheffield United v Arsenal (13:00 BST), Leicester City v Chelsea (16:00 BST) and Newcastle United v Manchester City (18:30 BST).

We also send many happy returns to former keeper Fabien Barthez and current midfielder Andreas Pereira who both celebrate their birthdays on Sunday.
