United's first two Premier League fixtures will now both be broadcast live on Sky Sports.

Monday's opener against Wolves will now kick-off at 6pm, whilst the trip to face Aston Villa at Villa Park will now take place on Monday 21st September, kick-off also 6pm.

At a Premier League Shareholders' meeting on Tuesday, clubs agreed that all 28 matches scheduled to be played in September will be broadcast live in the UK, via the League's existing broadcasting partners Sky Sports, BT Sport, Amazon Prime Video and BBC.

Sky Sports and BT Sport have already selected 17 matches for live broadcast for the first three match rounds of the 2020/21 season. Of the remaining 11 matches, Sky Sports will broadcast an additional six, BT Sport a further three and BBC and Amazon Prime Video one each.

The Premier League is also in discussions with BBC Radio 5 Live and talkSPORT to agree a similar solution for radio.

In consultation with all relevant stakeholders, the Premier League is considering appropriate arrangements for matches which will take place after 1 October.

The Premier League is working on a step-by-step approach, while monitoring the developments regarding the League's number one priority of getting fans back into full stadia as soon as possible, with safety always being our priority.
