Manchester Derby Rescheduled For Thursday, April 27th 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sat Mar 18, 2017 3:13 pm

Manchester City will host Manchester United on Thursday, April 27th for their rescheduled Premier League match.

City had been due to host the 174th Manchester derby on Feb. 26, but United's involvement in the EFL Cup final against Southampton at Wembley on the same day forced the Premier League game to be postponed.

City's involvement in the FA Cup and Champions League until last week's elimination at the hands of AS Monaco, alongside United's Europa League commitments, had left the date of the rearranged fixture in doubt.

If United progress to the Europa League final, they will face having to play a further 17 games this season in the space of two months prompting Mourinho to claim his club have 'many enemies' blocking their way to success.
