Manchester United Europa League Kick-Off Put Back

Manchester United have succeeded in getting the kick-off time for the second leg of their Europa League last-16 clash with Liverpool from 6pm to 8.05pm. United had been scheduled to take on their fierce local rivals at 6pm on March 17, leading to fears fans would struggle to get to Old Trafford due to rush hour traffic.

The club asked UEFA to move the kick-off on Monday but as late as Wednesday afternoon, were not expecting European football's governing body to agree. Both United and Trafford Council had been concerned that the timing of the game added to the fact that it will take place on St Patrick's Day, would lead to travel chaos.

The first leg will be played at Anfield on Thursday March 10 (kick-off 8.05pm) with the return fixture at Old Trafford on Thursday 17 March - also now at 8.05pm.
