Manchester United’s First Three Premier League Fixtures Confirmed In Restart


Manchester United are set to return to Premier League action at Tottenham Hotspur on Friday 19 June after the opening dates for the resumption of the top flight were announced. Like all fixtures scheduled at the moment, the game will be played behind closed doors due to coronavirus concerns.

The match will kick off at 8pm BST in north London, and will be shown live on TV on Sky Sports.

Manchester United and Spurs are both chasing Champions League qualification, and neither can realistically afford a defeat with the pressure already back on.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are bidding to do the double over Spurs, following the 2-1 win at Old Trafford in December, and extending an unbeaten run of 11 games that was halted by the enforced break due to the coronavirus crisis.

On the following Wednesday, 24 June, Manchester United will meet Sheffield United at Old Trafford, with kick-off at 18:00 BST

The corresponding fixture was a cracking 3-3 draw at Bramall Lane and the Blades are real contenders for a European spot as they lie two points and two places below the Reds, but with a game in hand.

Then on Tuesday, June 30, United travel to the Amex Stadium to face Brighton and Hove Albion. That fixture kicks-off at 8.15pm and will also be live on Sky Sports.

In between the clash with Sheffield United and the trip to Brighton comes the FA Cup quarter-final, with United away at Norwich City, which will kick-off at 5.30pm on Saturday, June 27, live on BBC One.
