Man Utd and Leeds set to face each other twice in five days next month

Providing FA Cup replays aren’t needed, the two sides will meet on the 8th and 12th of February

Manchester United and Leeds are pencilled in to play each other twice in the Premier League in the space of five days next month.

Erik ten Hag’s men were due to welcome the West Yorkshire side to Old Trafford on September 18, only for the match to be postponed due events surrounding the Queen’s funeral.

The Premier League has now confirmed that match will be rearranged for Wednesday, February 8 should the sides not require replays in their respective FA Cup fourth-round fixtures.

It sets up the potential of the two rivals playing back-to-back matches against the other, with the reverse fixture at Elland Road scheduled for Sunday, February 12.

The Premier League said it was “giving supporters as much notice as possible by announcing this potential fixture date” ahead of the FA Cup fourth-round ties taking place next weekend.

The statement continued: “The League also acknowledges the unique circumstances of the teams playing each other twice in the same week, with Leeds United v Manchester United scheduled for Sunday 12 February.

“This is to avoid potential fixture congestion later in the season.”

Leeds will travel to winners of Tuesday’s third-round replay between Accrington and Boreham Wood in the FA Cup, while Man United are hosting Reading in the fourth round.
