What next for Manchester United
United do have a fixture this week to look forward to, away at Sheriff Tiraspol in the Europa League on Thursday night.
With no league game at the weekend, United can field a full strength side without having to worry about resting players for Sunday, which is one small consolation.
No date has been set to re-arrange the fixtures postponed in the wake of the Queen’s death, which also includes United’s trip away to Crystal Palace.
We then head into an international break, with United’s next Premier League game against Manchester City at the start of October.
