The Whites' trip to face Burnley at Turf Moor will now kick-off at 12.30 on May 15 after being selected for television coverage by broadcaster BT Sport.

United's penultimate game of the season has also been moved into midweek instead of a weekend clash.

Leeds travel to Southampton in their final away match of the season and will now play at St Mary's on May 18 or 19.

The change has been made in the hope that each top flight team can have a home fixture with a percentage of supporters in attendance before the end of the current campaign.

The UK government is set to lift further Covid-19 restrictions on May 17 which would allow for the return of supporters in a small capacity, and the original planned weekend for the second last round of games would've come before that date.

Kick-off times and television selections are yet to be confirmed.
