Monday 12 April 2021 13:58

With both Europa League and Premier League action returning to Old Trafford, Manchester United have a hectic week in store.

We bet a lot of Reds enjoyed Sunday’s 3-1 win against Tottenham Hotspur in London. Now, attention turns to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side’s second leg in the Europa League quarter-final against Granada before the week comes to an end with an Old Trafford visit from Burnley in the Premier League.

In addition, Casey Stoney’s team enter the Women’s FA Cup this weekend and both our Under-18s and Under-23s are also in action this week.

Here’s how seven exciting days at United shapes up…

Ole’s men will put in the hard work at Aon Training Complex ahead of our Europa League quarter-final second leg versus Granada as the focus shifts to the bid for silverware in a competition we won in 2017. We hold a 2-0 lead from the first leg but will be missing some key players due to suspension.

On this day in 1999, United progressed to the FA Cup final after beating Arsenal in an iconic semi-final replay at Villa Park, the last one ever, thanks to a penalty save from Peter Schmeichel and a truly magical Ryan Giggs extra-time winner.


The Reds welcome Granada for the first time with kick-off at the Theatre of Dreams taking place at 20:00 BST. United have a two-goal advantage from the first meeting in Spain after strikes from Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes sealed a 2-0 win.

The match is being shown live on BT Sport in the UK but you can also tune into MUTV’s coverage with the Match Day Live programme starting at 18:55 BST.

United are back at Old Trafford for our battle with Burnley in the Premier League. The Reds won 1-0 in the reverse fixture at Turf Moor in January thanks to a magnificent Paul Pogba volley in the second half.
