The reason why Man Utd vs Southampton won't be shown live on TV in the UK

The reason why Man Utd vs Southampton won't be shown live on TV in the UK

Bad news for Man Utd and Southampton fans.

Manchester United return to Premier League action against Southampton on Sunday.

United were thrashed 7-0 by rivals Liverpool last weekend, a humiliating result which all but ended their slim Premier League title hopes.

They bounced back from that defeat to beat Spanish side Real Betis 4-1 in the first leg of their Europa League round of 16 tie at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Erik ten Hag will be hoping for a similar result when Southampton visit the Theatre of Dreams this weekend.

The Saints also head into the match on the back of a victory, having beaten Leicester 1-0 last Saturday.

But results this weekend mean Ruben Selles' side are bottom of the table heading into their clash with United.

Is Man Utd vs Southampton on TV?

The match will kick off at Old Trafford at 2pm GMT on Sunday afternoon.

But unfortunately for fans of United and Southampton, the game will not be shown live on TV in the UK.

This is because Sky Sports or BT Sport did not choose the fixture as part of their live rights.

The match was originally due to be played at the traditional time of 3pm GMT on Saturday but was forced to be moved because of United's involvement in the Europa League round of 16.

Sky Sports will instead broadcast the London derby between Fulham and Premier League leaders Arsenal at Craven Cottage, which also kicks off at 2pm GMT on Sunday.

It is part of a Super Sunday double-header, with Newcastle United facing Wolves at 4.30pm GMT.

What happened in the reverse fixture?

United and Southampton have already met once in the Premier League this season.

A second-half strike from United captain Bruno Fernandes was enough to give Erik ten Hag's side a 1-0 win at St Mary's back in August.
