The final Manchester derby of the season has been rescheduled for April 27. That’s a Thursday! Crikey!

City and United will clash at the Etihad Stadium towards the end of the season, with the Premier League finally announcing a rescheduled date for the fixture.

The game was originally moved due to United’s participation in the EFL Cup final, and will now take place towards the end of April, with an 8pm kick-off.

It will be the third derby of the season, with City winning the first 2-1 in September in the league.

United exacted a measure of revenge for that defeat with victory in the earlier rounds of the EFL Cup, before they went on to lift the trophy in February.

City are currently third in the Premier League table on 57 points. United are fifth, five points behind, but with one game in hand.
