February may be the shortest month of the year, but in the second week of the month there is no shortage of action at Manchester United.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men will be in action twice over the seven-day period as we first play West Ham United in the Emirates FA Cup before visiting West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League at the weekend.

We'll also see two Manchester derbies as both our Women and Under-18s go head-to-head with Manchester City. Our Under-23s are also in action, meaning there will be plenty of United matches to keep an eye on this week. 

Here is a full rundown of how the week shapes up…
