Erik ten Hag

What's happening at United this week?

Monday 24 October 2022 15:44

As we enter the final full week of October 2022, we're taking a look at what the next seven days look like across the club.

Erik ten Hag's first team will be looking to continue our unbeaten run - currently at six games in all competitions - as we play twice this week at Old Trafford: once in the Europa League, and once in the Premier League. 

There's also a double instalment of women's team action, while our Under-21s and Under-18s also play. 

Here’s a day-by-day guide to everything happening over the next week...

All The Goals: Wayne Rooney

All The Goals | Wayne Rooney scored 253 times for United, more than any other player in our history...


On this day in 2004, Manchester United ended Arsenal's 49-game unbeaten Premier League run at Old Trafford. Goals from Ruud van Nistelrooy and Wayne Rooney sealed a 2-0 victory over Arsene Wenger's 'Invincibles'.

Speaking of Rooney, our all-time top scorer turns 37 today. Happy birthday, Wayne!


We'll begin looking ahead to United's midweek Europa League clash with Sheriff Tiraspol, with early team news released ahead of Thursday's kick-off. The Reds won the reverse game in Moldova 2-0 last month, wrapping up the three points before half-time through goals from Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Later in the day, we'll have training updates from Carrington, plus an exclusive interview featuring two of our Brazilian stars: Antony and Casemiro.


Ten Hag will hold his pre-match press conference at Carrington and we'll discover the latest on his squad ahead of Sheriff's visit.

Attention then turns to two of our other sides, as Marc Skinner's Reds play our second group game of the Continental Cup. A draw to Aston Villa last time saw United miss out on the extra point after Villa won on penalties.

Our Under-21s are also in action today, playing Sparta Prague at Altrincham in the Premier League International Cup. Both games kick off at 19:00 BST.

Ten Hag provides Varane injury update


Erik ten Hag delivers the latest news on Rapha after he went off at Stamford Bridge.


The first team are back in action in the Europa League against Sheriff Tiraspol at home, with kick-off at 20:00 BST. 

On this day in 2019, Marcus Rashford scored his 50th goal for United - he's currently just two away from the 100 club. 

We will also be remembering the late Harry Gregg on what would have been his 90th birthday. The legendary goalkeeper, and survivor of the Munich Air Disaster, passed away in February 2020.


We'll be reflecting on Thursday night's game, as we begin to look forward to the weekend's fixtures. 

It's also a chance to celebrate the birthday of former Red Alan Smith, who turns 42 today. Happy birthday, Alan!

Obituary: Harry Gregg OBE


The remarkable life of Harry Gregg is one that should be celebrated.


In an action-packed weekend of fixtures across all levels of the club, the Under-21s kick us off with a 12:00 BST clash against Tottenham Hotspur in Premier League 2. 

Half an hour later, at 12:30 BST, the Under-18s will take on Newcastle United in the U18 Premier League.


After the clocks have gone back in the United Kingdom, our Women's side travel to Everton for a 14:00 GMT kick-off, and that WSL game will be aired live on the BBC for fans in the UK to watch. 

The men's team then host West Ham at Old Trafford, at 16:15 GMT. Former United boss David Moyes will be in the dugout for the visitors, with Sky Sports showcasing this one for UK fans. 

We will provide regular updates for all weekend games on the United App and via
