Manchester United return to Premier League action at Old Trafford on Saturday, with Brighton & Hove Albion being our first opponents after the September international break.

Before then, there is plenty to keep an eye out for, including the remaining international matches involving our players across the globe. Later in the week, the Reds are set to regroup at Carrington and Erik ten Hag will preview the weekend's fixture in his pre-match press conference.

The next seven days is filled with key dates for United Women too. Our pre-season campaign continues with two friendlies, the first of which is against Liverpool and is a game that you can watch live on MUTV for free! The WSL summer transfer window will close this week and our first-ever UEFA Women's Champions League opponents will be confirmed.

The following day-by-day breakdown has all the details of the above and much more...
