What's happening at United this week?

Monday 18 April 2022 08:00

Trips to Liverpool and Arsenal are on the slate for Ralf Rangnick’s Manchester United over the next seven days.

Two games means as many pre-match press conferences with our interim manager, as part of a busy week at the club which also includes fixtures for our women’s team and Academy sides. 

As we’re now into the business end of the season, there are also some significant trophy-lifting anniversaries, along with a birthday to celebrate for good measure. 

So, here’s everything that’s happening this week at United…

Today, we’re looking ahead to Tuesday evening’s fast-approaching Premier League trip to Anfield, to face Liverpool. Ralf Rangnick will host his pre-match press conference on this Easter Monday afternoon and you can catch every word of it on MUTV, ManUtd.com and in the Manchester United App.

Elsewhere, the MUFC Peter Saville collection launches to adiClub members via the adidas online shop and United Direct. Part two of Steve Coppell’s UTD Podcast is released, while we’re also sending birthday wishes over to Merseyside for on-loan midfielder Donny van de Beek, who is of course currently at Everton. Have a good one, Donny!

Matchday no.33 of the Premier League season arrives on Tuesday for United with the trip to Liverpool for a 20:00 BST kick-off against Jurgen Klopp’s side. Coincidently, the fixture comes on the anniversary of Gary Pallister’s famous double there in 1997, during a 3-1 win.

Our men’s team aren’t the only side in action either, with the Under-18s kicking off at home to Burnley in the U18 Premier League exactly an hour before. 


We’ll be bringing you further reaction from Anfield in the aftermath of Tuesday’s game on Merseyside, before looking ahead to what the weekend brings. The date, 20 April, is the anniversary of two title-clinching moments - Sir Matt Busby's team winning the old First Division in 1957, and our women securing the FA Women's Championship in 2019.

While the countdown is well and truly on for Saturday’s meeting with Arsenal at this point, it’s also exactly 23 years to the day of an iconic fixture for the club. On this day in 1999, the Reds overcame a two-goal deficit in Turin to topple Juventus 3-2 and advance to the Champions League final. The rest is history…


The build-up to our game at the Emirates Stadium will continue on Friday when interim manager Ralf Rangnick will hold his latest media briefing and provide the latest team news.

United are also locking horns with the Gunners in Premier League 2, as our Under-23s face their young Arsenal counterparts at Old Trafford this Friday evening (19:00 BST), with the game set to be broadcast live on MUTV.

Our weekend starts with an early kick-off in the capital on St George’s Day, as United face Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal in what could be another important clash in the Champions League qualification shape-up. You will be able to follow the game live on MUTV, with pre-match build-up, live radio commentary and post-match reaction after the final whistle, while we also have our usual full coverage on ManUtd.com and in the app.

It’s our second double matchday of the week too with Travis Binnion’s Under-18s also playing at the same time, 12:30 BST, at home to Newcastle in the U18 Premier League.


As we reflect on Saturday’s outing, the week finishes with the return of United Women from the April international break. Marc Skinner’s Reds play the first of our final three WSL games, away to Aston Villa at 18:00 BST, with every point crucial in our pursuit of European qualification for next season. We'll report on the action at the Banks’s Stadium in the United App and ManUtd.com.

Sunday is also the anniversary of both our first and second FA Cup triumphs - in 1909 and 1948 respectively.
