Just like every other club in the English Premier League, Manchester United had their match against Crystal Palace on Sunday postponed after the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.
It’s anticipated that the Premier League games on the weekend of September 17-18 will also be postponed with the state funeral set to hold during that period.
The league management is yet to announce exactly when all these postponed games will take place.
But the next date to play deferred matches is much later in the mid-week of the January 17/18 next year.
That means United might have to play the Palace game and even the one against Leeds United next year, causing scheduling issues.

Currently, the Red Devils are scheduled to play three Premier League games in January – but will also be involved in FA Cup action from that month.
There could also be two Carabao Cup games in that month for United if they are able to progress through the knockout rounds.
If two postponed games are added to the month, the Red Devils could end up having to play 8 matches across three competitions in the space of 31 days.
