April's Manchester derby has been moved back two days, depending on United's involvement in the Champions League.

The potentially pivotal Old Trafford encounter is now scheduled for Monday, April 8 - depending on United's continued involvement in the Champions League.

The clash between United and City has unsurprisingly been singled out as a live TV fixture but that could change if United overcome Real Madrid to reach the last 16.

The Champions League quarter-final second legs are scheduled for April 9 and 10, in which case United's involvement would make the prospective Monday date with City impractical.
