This week at United: 16 to 22 October

Monday 16 October 2023 08:00

Manchester United's Premier League campaign resumes this weekend, when Erik ten Hag's side play away to Sheffield United on Saturday night (20:00 BST).

Before that clash on the other side of the Pennines, United Women will face Paris Saint-Germain in a crucial UEFA Champions League clash - the first of two games for Marc Skinner's side this week.

The second-leg encounter in Paris is also one half of a double live-football offering over the next seven days on MUTV, with our Academy's U18 Premier League Cup tie away to Wolves also available to watch on the channel.

You can find further details on how you can be across all of the aforementioned matches, and everything else happening at United this week, below...

United Women 1 Leicester City 1


The Reds come from behind, but are held to a draw by the Foxes on home turf.


Reaction to United Women's latest WSL outing - a 1-1 draw with Leicester City - will continue, with match highlights to become available in several countries across our official platforms.

Reds goalkeeper Mary Earps became our women's team's fifth player to reach 100 appearances, on Sunday afternoon, and we will bring you an exclusive interview with the goalkeeper following her latest achievement.

Later in the day, multiple members of our men's squad could represent their nations. Andre Onana's Cameroon face Senegal (19:30 BST) in a friendly, while there is Euro 2024 qualifying action with United involvement too. Victor Lindelof could captain Sweden away to Belgium, while Diogo Dalot and Bruno Fernandes may play for Portugal at Bosnia and Herzegovina (both 19:45 BST kick-offs).


Women's head coach Skinner will conduct his pre-match press conference before United Women's crucial Champions League second leg away to PSG. An injury update on Gabby George may be on the agenda, after the defender was forced off in the first half of Sunday's game versus Leicester. Geyse, Aoife Mannion and Emma Watson also missed the clash in Leigh.

On Tuesday, you will be able to watch a brand-new episode of our regular talk show, The Debate. The panellists will be looking ahead to United getting back on the road in the Premier League, among several other topics.

The day is also filled with international action to keep an eye out for, as early as 11:10 BST in the morning, when Hannibal's Tunisia go up against Japan. As many as seven Reds could then feature in the evening fixtures being played in Africa and Europe.


Our involvement in the October international break is rounded off in the early hours of Wednesday morning (UK time), in the World Cup qualifiers on the South American continent. Alejandro Garnacho could feature for Argentina away to Peru (03:00 BST), after a potential duel between Casemiro and Facundo Pellistri, when Brazil play Uruguay (01:00 BST). Any meeting on the pitch could depend on Casemiro's fitness, as the midfielder picked up a knock while playing for his nation last week.

In Paris, United Women take on PSG in the second leg of our evenly poised UEFA Women's Champions League round-two tie (1-1 on aggregate), with kick-off at 19:00 BST. Supporters in the UK and Ireland (only, due to broadcast restrictions) will be able to watch the contest live on MUTV, with build-up starting 30 minutes prior to the action.

Regular updates will also be available on and the United App, along with a report and all the post-match reaction after the final whistle.


Women's team goalkeeper Phallon Tullis-Joyce will hopefully have a victory in Paris to celebrate on her birthday, as the American turns 27 on Thursday.

We will have further coverage in the aftermath of the tie, while looking ahead to the men's team's first assignment after the international break. Be sure to keep an eye out on and the United App for everything you need to know before the encounter at Bramall Lane. 


On Friday, you will be able to hear from both of our first-team bosses before the weekend's fixtures.

United Women travel to Everton, and ahead of that match in the WSL, Marc Skinner will speak to the media in his pre-match press conference. Erik ten Hag will also hold his pre-Sheffield United media briefing, with the times for both sessions yet to be confirmed.

United's last trip to Bramall Lane came in December 2020, when Martial and Rashford (2) got the goals in a 3-2 win.


The Premier League returns, with United's visit to South Yorkshire one of eight games taking place in the men's top flight on Saturday.

Before the 20:00 BST kick-off, which you can listen to live with radio commentary on MUTV (available on and the United App), our Matchday Live show will bring you all the essential build-up from 18:55 BST.

Earlier, in the morning, you will be able to watch Ten Hag's exclusive Matchday Q&A with club media, and, if live match action is what you are looking for ahead of the Premier League game, you can see our Under-18s play Wolves live on MUTV. Kick-off in the Midlands is at 11:30 BST, with coverage starting at 11:15 BST. 


From midnight, extended versions of highlights from our meeting with the Blades will be available, as the post-match reaction continues.

Men's assistant coach Mitchell van der Gaag celebrates his 52nd birthday, and we will be wishing him many happy returns.

In the afternoon, United Women's WSL campaign resumes with an away fixture at Everton, which gets under way at 13:00 BST. You will be able to follow the game from Merseyside with live coverage on our platforms.
