Settle back and enjoy the best bits from our last Manchester derby victory at Old Trafford...


Our youngsters travel to Merseyside to take on their Everton counterparts in a Under-18 Premier League fixture which had to be rearranged due to our involvement in the FA Youth Cup. Neil Ryan’s side have won six of their last seven across all competitions, although the Toffees emerged victorious in the reverse fixture at the Aon Training Complex. You can keep up with all the action, live on MUTV, from 18:45 GMT (kick-off 19:00 GMT).

Peter Schmeichel features as the subject of this week’s UTD Podcast, available to download from Deezer and all your favourite podcast platforms from Tuesday morning, while the April edition of Inside United – containing an exclusive double interview with our centre-back pairing Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire – goes on sale.


Attention turns to the Europa League last-16 first leg tie against LASK. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side will work at the Aon Training Complex before travelling over to Austria, where the boss will hold his pre-match press conference at the Linzer Stadion around 18:00 GMT, although that time is to be confirmed. As usual, you’ll be able to keep up with all the latest updates on ManUtd.com and via the Official App.


The Reds’ Europa League campaign continues as we take on LASK at the Linzer Stadion in Linz (17:55 GMT kick-off), although the game will take place behind closed doors following guidance from the Austrian Government. The Black-Whites currently sit top of the Austrian Bundesliga, six points clear of champions Red Bull Salzburg, and defeated AZ Alkmaar in the last-32 to reach this stage. You can keep across all of the action from Austria via MUTV.

Prior to kick-off, we’ll be showing all of the build-up via the ‘Match Day Live’ show from 16:45 GMT. This will then be followed by live radio commentary of the match. Keep up to date with everything that happens on ManUtd.com and the Official App, where you can track live data and player statistics in the Match Centre.

Dean Henderson, who is having a stunning season on loan at Sheffield United, turns 23. Many happy returns, Deano!


As well as bringing you all the action and reaction from Linz, we’ll also provide team news updates from Ole’s pre-match press conference for Tottenham on Sunday, which is set to be held immediately after the LASK match.

We’ll also be wishing James Garner a happy 19th birthday. The homegrown midfielder made his first-team debut in February 2019 and has played seven times in total for the Reds.

James Garner turns 19 on Friday.


Neil Ryan’s Under-18s tackle their second league fixture in four days, as Newcastle United come to the Aon Training Complex for a game you can watch live on MUTV, from 12:30 GMT.


The Reds make the trip to the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, as we take on Jose Mourinho’s Spurs in what could be a crucial game in the race for the Champions League positions. Marcus Rashford struck the only goal of the game in this fixture last season, played at Wembley, and you can find out if it’ll be another happy trip to north London for United on ‘Match Day Live’ from 15:20 GMT, with kick-off set for 16:30 GMT.

Sunday also marks Paul Pogba’s 27th birthday. The World Cup-winning midfielder has made 150 appearances for the Reds, scoring 31 goals. Happy birthday, Paul!
