MANCHESTER UNITED’s home clash against Liverpool has been moved to the same day as the Carabao Cup final.
The Red Devils’ chance of revenge from the weekend’s 3-1 defeat at Anfield will now take place on Sunday, February 24.
Manchester United’s home clash against Liverpool will be on the same day as the Carabao Cup final
It will be broadcast live on Sky Sports.
Both sides were knocked out of the competition in the third round – United to Derby and Liverpool to Chelsea.
The Premier League clash is scheduled to take place at 2.05pm, with the EFL Cup final expected to follow last year’s scheduling for a 4.30pm kick-off.
Also on the same day, Chelsea will entertain Brighton and Arsenal will host Southampton, both subject to change.
Jose Mourinho will be hoping he is still in charge at Manchester United on February 24
Will Liverpool be celebrating once again at the expense of Manchester United
Jurgen Klopp is almost certain to lead the Liverpool side out at Old Trafford, looking for home and away victories against their bitter rivals.
But there is certainly no guarantee Jose Mourinho will be in the opposing dugout.
Following United’s 3-1 defeat at the weekend, they are now a massive 19 points behind top-team Liverpool in the Premier League.
That means they are actually closer in points to the team at the bottom, Fulham, than they are to the Merseysiders.

And this has inevitably led for calls for Mourinho to be sacked at Old Trafford.
SunSport reported that Mourinho is facing calls to be sacked from his own fans – three years to the day since he got the boot from Chelsea.
The 19-time English league champions have now made the worst start to the season for 28 years after the loss at Anfield.
Though reports suggest Mourinho will not be sacked in the immediate aftermath of the game, that has not stopped fans speculating over when he will be dismissed.
Today’s date of December 17 marks three years since Mourinho was sacked unceremoniously by Chelsea after a disastrous start to the third campaign of his second spell at Stamford Bridge.
Former United star Gary Neville believes Mourinho will be axed, while the likes of R oy Keane, Paul Ince and Alan Shearer have blasted at how things are going at the club.
