We're back! Your essential info for Spurs v United

Tuesday 16 June 2020 08:44

Three months since football was suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Manchester United return to Premier League action on Friday, as we face Tottenham Hotspur away.

It will be the Reds' first fixture at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, which opened its doors in April 2019; it's the 58th different away ground that we have visited in the Premier League.

Prior to the start of the break in mid-March, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Reds were in a rich vein of form, having defeated local rivals Manchester City 2-0 at Old Trafford, before a five-star display against LASK in the first leg of our Europa League last-16 tie.

Ahead of what will be our first competitive match for 99 days, here is everything you need to know...

The Premier League resumes two days before United travel to Tottenham, with Aston Villa hosting Sheffield United at 18:00 BST on Wednesday, followed by Manchester City v Arsenal at 20:15 BST, in what are effectively games in hand for the four clubs concerned.

Match week 30 then begins a couple of hours before the Reds and Spurs kick off, as Norwich and Southampton meet at the neutral venue of Craven Cottage in Friday evening's early fixture.

Four more games will take place on Saturday, all at different times, with top-four chasing Wolves and Leicester City among the sides in action.

Three further encounters are on Sunday, which includes fourth-placed Chelsea away at Aston Villa and the Merseyside Derby, before Manchester City host Burnley on Monday evening.
