Change of date for Manchester derby

The Manchester derby at Old Trafford has been set back two days

April's potentially pivotal Manchester derby at Old Trafford has been moved back two days to Monday, April 8 - depending on United's continued involvement in the Champions League.

The clash between United and City has unsurprisingly been singled out as a live TV fixture but that could change if United overcome Real Madrid to reach the last 16.

The Champions League quarter-final second legs are scheduled for April 9 and 10, in which case United's involvement would make the prospective Monday date with City impractical.
