Old Trafford

What's happening at United this week?

Monday 20 November 2023 08:00

With the end of November in sight, it's shaping up to be another busy week at Manchester United, including four matches across our teams, players on international duty and lots more.

Over the next seven days, Erik ten Hag’s Reds will return to Premier League duty, United Women will play twice and our Under-18s are in cup action. Here’s what’s coming up…


We begin the week by reacting to a historic Manchester derby, the first in the Women’s Super League to be hosted at Old Trafford. You can watch post-match interviews and highlights, including 90 in 20, on ManUtd.com and in the United App.

That’s also where you’ll be able to watch and listen to Diogo Dalot’s fascinating UTD Podcast episode, which covers a range of topics in just half an hour, and will be released at 17:00 GMT. 

In the evening, Harry Maguire and Marcus Rashford could feature for England in their final Euro 2024 qualifier away to North Macedonia (19:45 GMT).

Dalot is back on UTD Podcast


The experience of winning his first trophy as a Red is one of many topics Diogo covers in a new episode, out on Monday.


More United players could be in action for their countries as Andre Onana’s Cameroon face Libya (16:00 GMT), Sofyan Amrabat’s Morocco take on Tanzania (19:00 GMT), Altay Bayindir’s Turkey travel to Wales (19:45 GMT) and Facundo Pellistri’s Uruguay host Bolivia (23:30 GMT).

Preparations will continue for United Women’s Continental League Cup clash with rivals Liverpool, as Marc Skinner will speak to the media on the eve of the game.

It’s also the day that Nicky Butt made the first of 387 appearances as a Red back in 1992, in a 3-0 win over Oldham Athletic at Old Trafford.


It’s matchday for our women’s team, who take on Liverpool at Prenton Park looking to build on the 7-0 thrashing of Everton in our previous Conti Cup outing. Kick-off will be at 19:00 GMT.

Live radio commentary and text updates will be available in our app, with a report of the game and post-match reaction published across our platforms after the final whistle.

We also wish a happy birthday to ex-Reds Chris Smalling and Marouane Fellaini.


Highlights, both short and extended, from United Women's clash with Liverpool will be available to view.

It’s also 19 years to the day since our legendary former boss Sir Alex Ferguson took charge of his 1000th game, as the Reds beat Lyon 2-1 in the Champions League at the Theatre of Dreams.


It will be a typically busy day as both our men’s and women’s teams get ready for important games on Sunday, away from home. Both Erik ten Hag and Marc Skinner will be speaking to the media in their pre-match press conferences, which you will be able to watch on ManUtd.com and in the United App.

The key stories from Erik's media briefing, including the latest team news, will be available to read across our platforms too, as we prepare to face Everton at the weekend.

Erik ten Hag will speak to the media on Friday ahead of Sunday's trip to Everton.


All eyes will be on our Under-18s, as Adam Lawrence’s side make the trip to Southampton for a Premier League Cup match which kicks off at 11:00 GMT. You’ll be able to watch proceedings live on MUTV, on ManUtd.com and in our app. A summary of the fixture will follow after the game's conclusion.

The second part of Erik ten Hag’s pre-Everton media briefing will also be available to watch and read across our platforms from 22:30 GMT, ahead of Sunday's trip to face the Toffees.

This day also marks the anniversaries of the deaths of George Best and Bill Foulkes, who passed away in 2005 and 2013 respectively and will always be in our thoughts.

Key stats from Erik's first 50 league games


We take a closer inspection of Ten Hag's half a century of matches as Reds boss.


Ten Hag's Matchday Q&A will be available to view and read, ahead of our trip to Goodison Park.

As we say a happy 26th birthday to Aaron Wan-Bissaka, he’ll be hoping the Reds can make it one to remember when we take on Everton in the Premier League (16:30 GMT). The match will be shown live on Sky Sports in the UK and we will provide live radio commentary on ManUtd.com and in our app throughout the 90 minutes.

Our Match Day Live show, which starts at 15:25 GMT, will bring you exclusive pre-match predictions and post-match reaction, with our Match Centre providing live updates, images, stats and more throughout the clash. Stay tuned on our platforms for interviews and reaction from Erik and our players after the fixture.

Earlier in the afternoon, United Women return to league action with a visit to Ashton Gate to take on Bristol City, live on BBC One in the UK (12:30 GMT). Team news, half-time and full-time updates will be posted in our app during the match, with a report of the game and reaction following the full-time whistle. Live radio commentary will be available in the United App and on ManUtd.com.

It’s also the day that one Eric Cantona became a Red in 1992 - and the rest, as they say, is history!
