On Saturday, October 28, Manchester United will host Manchester City at Old Trafford for the opening Manchester derby of the 2023–24 season.
The timetables for each of the 20 clubs were confirmed when the fixtures for the upcoming season were made public at 9 a.m. on Thursday. On Friday, August 11, City will go to Burnley, a team that has just been promoted, while on Monday, August 14, United will host Wolverhampton Wanderers at Old Trafford to open their title defense.
The final Saturday in October has been set aside for the first all-Manchester match of the year, with United hosting City at M16 for a 3pm kickoff. However, the kickoff time and possibly even the date may alter due to TV scheduling. The first all-Manchester matchup of the previous season took place in the same month at the Etihad Stadium.
In their most recent meeting at Old Trafford, United came from behind to defeat City 2-1. Following Jack Grealish’s first goal, goals from Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford completely changed the course of the match.
The scheduled time for the rematch, which is expected to start at 3 p.m. on Saturday, March 2, 2024 at the Etihad Stadium, is again subject to change. The two teams previously faced off at the Etihad, where City prevailed 6-3 with to hat-tricks from Phil Foden and Erling Haaland.
Of course, City defeated United once more in the FA Cup final earlier this month at Wembley. Ilkay Gundogan scored on either side of a penalty from Bruno Fernandes to help the Blues get one step closer to winning the Treble.
