Monday 26 October 2020 08:00

The return of Champions League football to Old Trafford, a home clash with Premier League rivals and a cup semi-final... just a few of the things happening at Manchester United this week.

We've rounded it all up here in one easy guide...


A brand-new episode of UTD Podcast will be available from late afternoon and club legend Arthur Albiston is the special guest, as he reveals his link to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer around the time our manager moved to Old Trafford as a player.


Ole will face the media ahead of our first home match of the Champions League group stage against RB Leipzig, and you can watch his press conference live on ManUtd.com and in the official app.

Tuesday also marks the one-year anniversary of the club’s 2,000th Premier League goal, scored by Scott McTominay in an impressive 3-1 away win at Norwich City.

The floodlights, the music, the drama… Europe's premier competition is back at the Theatre of Dreams as we welcome RB Leipzig for the second match in Group H. United will look to build on our strong 2-1 win in Paris with a win against the Germans, whom we have never faced before. 

Make sure you watch all the pre-match build up live on MUTV and follow the game live on ManUtd.com and in our official app. Kick-off is at 20:00 GMT.


We celebrate one of the true legends of our club as Edwin van der Sar turns 50. The goalkeeper played 266 times for the Reds between 2005 and 2011. He won the Champions League, Club World Cup and two League Cups, as well as three straight Premier League titles between 2007 and 2009, before adding a fourth following his last appearance in 2011. No doubt we'll be showing that penalty save in Moscow again and enjoying it once more. Happy birthday, Edwin!


United's youngsters resume the 2019/20 FA Youth Cup campaign with a mouthwatering semi-final against our counterparts from Chelsea. The match at St. George's Park starts at 19:45 GMT and we're wishing Neil Ryan and his team the very best of luck. 

The Reds have won the tournament more times than any club with 10 triumphs, including that famous one in 1992, when club legends Gary Neville, David Beckham and Ryan Giggs were part of the team. When we won it in 2011, Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard were in the side that beat Harry Maguire’s Sheffield United in the final.

Also, Ole will speak to the media ahead of the weekend's Premier League clash with Arsenal. You can watch his press conference on ManUtd.com and in the official app in the morning.

Neil Ryan's youngsters will still have a chance to lift the prestigious trophy after all.


Over the weekend, we celebrate two important figures at the club. Marcus Rashford, who has had a great start to the season both on and off the pitch, turns 23 years old. Our no. 10 shares his special day with club legend Denis Irwin. The former left-back, who played an incredible 529 times for the club from 1990 to 2002, turns 55. Happy birthday, Marcus and Denis!


As the week comes to a close and October becomes November, United return to Premier League action for another tough home fixture.

This time, Arsenal will be the opposition at Old Trafford for a 16:30 GMT kick-off. You can watch exclusive build-up to the game on MUTV and follow live updates on ManUtd.com and in the official app.

We'll also be wishing Reds legend Mark Hughes a happy birthday as he turns 57.

Our 2020/21 home, away and third kits are available to buy from United Direct.
