Once again, the club has another hectic schedule to negotiate, with two crucial first-team matches at Old Trafford coming up this week.

We bet a lot of you woke up this morning feeling fine with Manchester United on your minds following our brilliant derby win over Manchester City, thanks to goals from Bruno Fernandes and Luke Shaw

This week, we’re back on home turf as we welcome AC Milan and West Ham United to the Theatre of Dreams. As well, our Academy sides are in action and there are several anniversaries to remember.

Here’s what’s coming up this week at United…

Highlights: City 0 United 2Video

MONDAY

We’re looking back at a tremendous performance by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men at Etihad Stadium with plenty of stories and videos coming your way, so keep your eyes on ManUtd.com and our Official App.

Monday marks one year since our last game with fans at Old Trafford, when United, just like yesterday, also beat City 2-0. Anthony Martial opened the scoring before Scott McTominay sealed the win with his stoppage-time strike from range. What an atmosphere! Here’s to the day we can welcome crowds back to the Theatre of Dreams.

On International Women’s Day, we’re announcing the launch of the club’s new campaign, Choose To Challenge, as members of our women’s team share their thoughts on tackling gender bias and inequality.

In this week’s episode of UTD Podcast, former United goalkeeper Gary Bailey joins presenters Helen Evans, Sam Homewood and David May to revisit his nine years at the club between 1978 and 1987 with some incredible stories. The episode is available on the streaming platform of your choice from 17:00 GMT.

TUESDAY

Ole’s men will be putting in the hard yards at the Aon Training Complex as we prepare for Thursday’s big clash in the UEFA Europa League against Italian giants AC Milan.

WEDNESDAY

Our manager will answer the media’s questions on Milan, ahead of our Round-of-16 first-leg encounter with the Serie A outfit. You can watch the press conference live on MUTV, ManUtd.com and our Official App at 13:30 GMT, and afterwards read all the key quotes.

There’s a local derby for our Under-18s on Wednesday evening, as United face Salford City’s Under-18s in the FA Youth Cup. The match starts at 19:00 GMT and will be shown live on MUTV.

THURSDAY

It’s set to be a big European night at Old Trafford as Milan come to town for the first time since 2010. The battle between the two great clubs kicks off at 17:55 GMT and you can follow the match live on ManUtd.com and in our Official App, or listen to live radio commentary on MUTV where exclusive live build-up begins an hour before.

FRIDAY

We’ll speak to Ole and bring you the latest team news ahead of Sunday’s Premier League home game against West Ham.

Our Under-23s will be in action during the afternoon, with Brighton & Hove Albion’s Under-23s visiting Leigh Sports Village. The Premier League 2 encounter kicks off at 15:00 GMT and you can watch it live on MUTV from 14:45 GMT.

As well, it’s double cause for celebration as we enter the weekend, with our goalkeeper Dean Henderson having his 24th birthday and MU Women’s forward Ivana Fuso turning 20. Many happy returns!

SATURDAY

The Under-18s will be back in action just three days after the midweek Youth Cup tie, returning to league action with a home fixture against Sunderland at the Aon Training Complex. Kicking off at 12:30 GMT, the game will be shown live on MUTV.

Speaking of the Academy, it’s James Garner’s 20th birthday on Saturday. The midfielder is currently gaining valuable experience at Nottingham Forest and has had a great start to his loan spell. Everyone at the club would like to wish him a happy birthday!

SUNDAY

We finish the week off by welcoming West Ham to the Theatre of Dreams. It’s an evening kick-off on Sunday with the Premier League encounter starting at 19:15 GMT.
