United’s game at Brentford was originally scheduled for 14 December and will now be played on Wednesday January 19 at 8pm.
It was called off after four United players tested positive for Covid in the build up to the game.
The match will be shown live on BT Sport.

As it stands Manchester United and Brentford’s respective FA Cup ties with Aston Villa and Port Vale are due to go ahead as planned.
