Manchester United players walk out for a game at Old Trafford

What's happening at United this week?

Monday 01 February 2021 08:30

Manchester United have another two-match week to negotiate in the Premier League but the fixtures against Southampton and Everton are just the tip of the iceberg for the club as a whole.

Here's our handy guide to all that's going on from Monday to Sunday...


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will hold his latest pre-match press conference at lunch-time and you'll be able to watch the first part on, MUTV and our Official App at 13:30 GMT. The second instalment will be available from 22:30 GMT. The manager will also give us an exclusive one-to-one interview, in which he could reflect further on Saturday's 0-0 draw at Arsenal and give us the latest team news for Tuesday night's home Premier League clash with Southampton.

Monday also marks the first anniversary of Bruno Fernandes's United debut, in last season's goalless home game against Wolves. That appearance came just a few days after his arrival in the January 2020 transfer window and the 2021 equivalent closes at 23:00 GMT tonight. Should any further moves happen - following the weekend's loan announcements for Jesse Lingard, Tahith Chong, James Garner and Facundo Pellistri - then our website and app will be the first to confirm them.

It's matchday and we'll begin it by bringing you that exclusive interview with Ole, plus the pre-match thoughts of Reds midfielder Scott McTominay, who will be hopefully be fit for the evening's action at Old Trafford after he was substituted during the Arsenal game at the weekend.

The Southampton game kicks off at 20:15 GMT and you'll be able to get the confirmed line-ups, follow live updates and then take in all the reaction on and in our Official App. MUTV's match coverage begins with build-up at 19:10 GMT and continues with live radio commentary.

A few hours before kick-off, we'll be announcing the winner of our Player of the Month award for January - the poll for that opens this Monday afternoon.

We'll be showing highlights of the Southampton game, giving you a choice of short and extended videos, as well as providing further reaction and analysis of our 22nd Premier League fixture in 2020/21.


Preparations for our next first-team match - Everton at home on Saturday night - will be well under way, as Ole and his coaching staff put the players through their paces at the Aon Training Complex.


It's press conference day again and while the start time will be confirmed later in the week, you can expect the same comprehensive coverage we provided for Monday's media briefing.

It's also a matchday for our Under-23s, who'll surely be buoyant for Blackburn's visit to Leigh Sports Village following last weekend's 6-3 away thrashing of Liverpool, in which Joe Hugill grabbed four goals and recent arrival Amad Diallo marked his first appearance for the club with the opening strike and a second-half 'Panenka' penalty.

As confirmed in last Friday's fixtures announcement, our home Premier League meeting with Everton has been brought forward 48 hours - due to both clubs' continuing involvement in the Emirates FA Cup - and kick-off against Carlo Ancelotti's side will therefore be this Saturday evening at 20:00 GMT. The usual in-depth match coverage will be available on, our Official App and MUTV.

It will also be a poignant day for everyone associated with Manchester United as we mark 63 years since the Munich Air Disaster, which claimed the lives of 23 people including eight players and three members of club staff. We will never forget them.

In the early afternoon, our Under-18s will seek to improve on a rare defeat, 0-1 to Burnley, when Neil Ryan's side travel to Sunderland for kick-off at 13:00 GMT.

How to stay up to date with United


As the season gets ever busier, here's our guide to the best ways of remaining in the know.


The fifth and final game we'll be covering this week will be United Women's home clash with Reading in the WSL. The state of play in the table is tight, as the Reds and leaders Chelsea both have 32 points, and Casey Stoney's side will be determined to build on the back-to-back wins over Birmingham and Everton on the last two Sundays.

Kick-off at Leigh Sports Village is scheduled for 12:30 GMT.
