The Premier League have officially confirmed the dates and timings for Manchester United’s festive fixtures against Nottingham Forest, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Bournemouth.
The Red Devils are currently 11 matches into the Premier League campaign. They have fared decently with 20 points, just one adrift of the Champions League places.
The club have another three league games against West Ham United, Aston Villa and Fulham to play before they head into a mid-season break due to the World Cup.
United’s first league match after the restart will be against Forest at Old Trafford, but it won’t be a Boxing Day fixture. Similar to last season, United will be playing on December 27.
It will be Forest’s first trip to Old Trafford in 24 years. The game will be shown on Amazon Prime Video with kick-off at 8pm GMT.
Following the Forest clash, United will end the calendar year with a trip to the Molineux Stadium to face Wolverhampton Wanderers on New Year’s Eve. It will be a 12.30pm GMT kick-off.
The game will be telecasted on BT Sport. Meanwhile, United will kickstart their New Year schedule with a home clash against Bournemouth, who have proved hard to beat under Gary O’Neil.
The fixture which was initially scheduled for January 2, has now been given a new date. The Red Devils will host the Cherries in an 8pm GMT kick-off on Tuesday, January 3.
Unfortunately, the game won’t be shown on TV in the UK. Aside from the three league fixtures, United could have a Carabao Cup fourth round tie if they are still alive in the competition.
It will be played between December 20 and 21, just days after the World Cup final (Sunday, December 18).
