United will then play Tottenham at home on March 12, Liverpool away on March 19, Leicester at home on April 2 and Everton away on April 9.

For Liverpool and Everton, the Merseyside derbies are November 30 at Goodison Park and April 23 at Anfield.

Meanwhile, Man United and Chelsea will meet at Old Trafford on the penultimate weekend before the season’s final round of games takes place on May 22.
