Manchester United players congratulate Anthony Martial

This week on ManUtd.com

It's another action-packed week at Old Trafford, with landmark birthdays to celebrate, awards to vote for and fixtures for the four teams we cover here on ManUtd.com...

MONDAY
 
The week begins with reflections on Sunday's pleasing 2-1 win over Everton, which made it two league wins on the bounce at Old Trafford. However, the sad news from Leicester City has cast a cloud over the football world, with the club and numerous players using social media to send their love and support to everyone associated with the Foxes.

We're wishing our former goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar a happy 48th birthday. Ajax's chief executive officer visited us earlier in the year, when he relived the incredible penalty shootout win that clinched our third European Cup in Moscow ten years ago.

TUESDAY
 
As October approaches its end, we're asking you to vote for your Player of the Month. Three Reds stars will vye for the award that Luke Shaw won in August and September after his personal flying start to the season.
 
WEDNESDAY
 
This day is all about marking the remarkable rise of Marcus Rashford, as the Mancunian forward turns 21. So swift and stunning was his ascension to the first team that it's sometimes easy to forget how young he still is. We'll be celebrating everything he's achieved already with special birthday features on ManUtd.com and the official app.

We'll also open our Goal of the Month poll, with a video showing the shortlisted strikes from the first team, women's team, Under-23s and Under-18s.
THURSDAY
 
We'll announce the winner of our Player of the Month award, and start our build-up to the Premier League game against Eddie Howe's buoyant Bournemouth with a comprehensive match preview.
 
FRIDAY
 
Jose Mourinho will speak to MUTV and hold a press conference on the eve of our Saturday lunchtime fixture at the Vitality Stadium. We'll have the manager's key quotes and video clips on ManUtd.com and the official app, as well as the all-important early team news.
 
In the evening, our Under-23s take on Newcastle United at Leigh Sports Village. Ricky Sbragia's men suffered a 2-1 defeat to Wolves at Molineux last Friday, despite 17-year-old striker Mason Greenwood scoring on his debut in that age group. You can watch the game live on MUTV (kick-off 19:00 GMT).

Also, look out for the result of our Goal of the Month poll.

SATURDAY
 
Our Under-18s are first up on Saturday, hosting Wolves at the Aon Training Complex at 11:30 BST. Neil Ryan's lads have won eight consecutive matches - can they make it nine?
 
The first team kick off the weekend of Premier League action an hour later, with that south-coast trip to face Bournemouth. The Cherries are flying high in sixth position and have won four of their last five games in all competitions. Can United record back-to-back victories for the first time since September? We'll find out from 12:30 GMT.
 
SUNDAY
 
Manchester United Women bring the weekend's schedule to a close on Sunday afternoon, by taking on Championship table-toppers Tottenham Hotspur Ladies at Leigh Sports Village (kick-off 12:00 GMT). Casey Stoney's side have not played since beating Charlton Athletic 3-0 on 14 October, with last Sunday's visit to Leicester City being postponed in the aftermath of the King Power Stadium helicopter tragedy.
 
It's a big match for our nascent female team: Spurs are five points ahead (albeit having played one more game) and are the only team to boast a 100 per cent record in the Women's Championship thus far.
