Manchester United are back in Premier League action this weekend for the first league game since their historic defeat against Liverpool, with Southampton the visitors to Old Trafford.

Is Manchester United vs Southampton on TV?

Unfortunately for fans of both clubs, Manchester United vs Southampton will not be shown live on TV anywhere in the UK.

The fixture was not selected by Sky Sports or BT Sport for TV coverage and so it was originally scheduled to take place on Saturday at 3pm.

However, with United having played in the Europa League against Real Betis on Thursday night, the game was put back by almost 24 hours to give the squad extra recovery time.

West Ham are also in the same boat, with their encounter with Aston Villa moved back by almost 24 hours to accommodate their Europa Conference League game in Cyprus on Thursday.

Match of the Day 2 will show highlights of all of Sunday’s Premier League fixtures at 10.30pm on BBC One.

Will the game be on radio?

BBC Radio 5 Sports Extra will have live commentary of the game from 1.55pm.
