The return of the 2019/20 Premier League season is just over a week away.
Manchester United have a minimum of 11 games left to play in all competitions – nine in the Premier League and at least one more in both the FA Cup and Europa League.
With two trophies left to play for as well as a top four (or top five depending on Manchester City’s fate in their CAS appeal against UEFA) place in the Premier League at stake in order to qualify for the Champions League, the next few weeks will be of utmost importance.
When Is Man Utd’s First Fixture?
United will resume the Premier League season with the next game they were supposed to play before the campaign was put on hold, which was a trip to London to face Tottenham and former boss Jose Mourinho. That will be on Friday 19 June at 8.15pm (BST).
United are three place and four points ahead of Spurs in the table as things stand, while they won 2-1 in the reverse fixture at Old Trafford back in December in one of Mourinho’s earliest games in charge after replacing Mauricio Pochettino. Marcus Rashford scored twice.
What Other Fixtures Have Been Announced?
The Premier League have only officially confirmed the first three rounds of fixtures for now.
After Spurs, United will host Sheffield United on Wednesday 24 June at 6pm (BST), a game that could have significant implications in the hunt for Champions League places.
The next confirmed fixture is a trip to Brighton on Tuesday 30 June at 8.15pm (BST).
The Premier League has also made available a full provisional list of all remaining fixtures, for which exact dates and times could yet be subject to change:
Man Utd vs Bournemouth – Saturday 4 July, 3pm (provisional)
Aston Villa vs Man Utd – Wednesday 8 July, 8pm (provisional)
Man Utd vs Southampton – Saturday 11 July, 3pm (provisional)
Crystal Palace vs Man Utd – Wednesday 15 July, 8pm (provisional)
Man Utd vs West Ham – Saturday 18 July, 3pm (provisional)
Leicester vs Man Utd – Sunday 26 July, 3pm (provisional)
All above kick-off times are BST
How to Watch Man Utd’s Fixtures on TV
All remaining Premier League fixtures this season will be broadcast live in the UK, even including any at 3pm on Saturday as the traditional blackout has been suspended with fans unable to attend.
All three of United’s confirmed games so far will be broadcast by Sky Sports, which can easily be live streamed on a non-contract basis on NOW TV, or via usual contract subscription methods.
As yet, the broadcasters for the other six provisionally scheduled games are unknown.
When Are Man Utd’s Cup Fixtures?
United were drawn away against Norwich in the FA Cup quarter-finals way back in March after seeing off Derby in the fifth round.
That game has now been rescheduled for Saturday 27 June, in between the Premier League fixtures against Sheffield United and Brighton. Kick-off at Carrow Road will be at 5.30pm (BST) and the game will be broadcast live on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
United will obviously fancy their chances against the Premier League’s bottom club, having won home and away by a combined score of 7-1 in league fixtures already this season, and dates for the semi-final and final will be confirmed in due course.
As things stand, UEFA are yet to confirm how the rest of the Europa League campaign will be played, although a mini tournament in early August when domestic seasons across the continent have finished is the expected solution.
United are 5-0 up on aggregate following the first leg of the last 16 tie against LASK.
BT Sport holds the exclusive broadcast rights to Champions League and Europa League games.
