United's supporters have been unable to cheer on their side from the stands since last March due to the country's ongoing fight against coronavirus and social distancing measures.

The Premier League say that details of broadcast selections for March and the rearrangement of previously postponed matches will be announced in due course.

A statement read: "The Premier League and its clubs remain committed to an accessible solution for fans.

"The UK live broadcast arrangements will be reviewed in consultation with clubs and in line with any decisions made by Government regarding the return of spectators to stadiums."

Leeds are back in action on Friday night at Wolves, a game which will be shown live on BT Sport.

Next Tuesday night's hosting of Southampton and the following Saturday's Elland Road contest against Aston Villa will both be shown live on Sky Sports.
