Fixture change: Manchester United's Aston Villa clash moved

Manchester United's Premier League fixture against Aston Villa at Old Trafford has been given a new kick-off time.

The match, set for 25 September, has been moved to 12.30 BST (2:30 EAT) due to a planned concert at Lancashire Cricket Club on the same day. 

A statement from the club read; 

“Our home match against Aston Villa on 25 September has been brought forward to a 12.30 BST kick-off, following a request from Trafford Council Safety Advisory Group to move the game due to the Courteeners concert at Lancashire Cricket Club, Emirates Old Trafford, on the same day.

“This request was supported by Greater Manchester Police and TfGM to avoid significant crowd, traffic, and operational issues locally.

“We regret any disruption that this may cause around our supporters’ plans for the day.”

In the meantime, United will host Newcastle on Saturday, in a match Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to make his second debut.
